Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) boss Kizza Besigye has made yet another significant record beating security in just three days. Besigye proved to the nation how our security if full of loopholes when he maneuvered heavy deployment at his Kasangati based home and stormed Down Town Kampala.
A day earlier police commander in charge of operations Sam Omala appeared before cameras and bragged how police had sealed off Besigye’s residence and that this time they wouldn’t sleep.
“We are ready for him, we shall not dose,” he said.
High ranked Police commanders including Felix Kaweesi, Central Police DPC James Ruhweza, Onesmus Mwesigwa and others were thrown a panic when intelligence spread that Besigye was in down town walking. “Honestly we panicked, there was no coordination among us we couldn’t believe the man was down town,” vividly shocked commander who sought anonymity narrated to Red Pepper.
“This is a shame, why can’t Omala resign, what does he do just eating our money! The problem with him is he talks a lot, we all saw him on TV screens bragging he is ashamed,” unidentified plain clothed officer mocked Omala.
On learning the bush war hero had paralyzed, business in town and was attracting surging sea of fanatics Police swung in and fired tear gas and live bullets.
With Ruhweza in command they directed Besigye to use luwum streets, but throngs of masses cheered the opposition icon . With some few radicals pelting stones at Police trucks trembling operatives started firing tear gas, a canister shattered unidentified man’s whopper at Old Park.
Drama continued as Besigye was taken to CPS in his Toyota Pajero UAK 773F where was detained. After few minutes a boda boda man identified as Keith Nyakahuma stormed CPS claiming that a Police officer shot him in the thigh.
“I was hiding behind Rwenzori Courts when suddenly felt something hitting my thigh and the next thing I saw was blood flowing. I didn’t see who shot me but officers chased us from our stage (boda boda stage near CPS),” he said .
Kaweesi then offered his car after an ambulance delayed and he was taken to Mulago.
Besigye’s detention attracted many FDC officials who raided CPS to bail him out but their efforts were thwarted as police claimed he was not at the station. Gen. Mugisha Muntu who was among the officials told Red Pepper that officers denied him access to see his comrade and they could tell him was Besigye wasn’t at CPS.
How Besigye Beat Security
As a soldier he can never run out of ideas. unconfirmed theories say that Besigye who sneaked from his banana plantation then entered a taxi wearing a cap and a hooded jacket. His personal driver then confused security buy driving his monster land cruiser UAN 661V when they tried to check it he was not inside. A pajero driven by Moses Tumukunde was waiting for him in town, picked him and stormed Nakivubo where he began to walk.
Omala In Hot Soup
Meanwhile our police sources assured us that Sam Omala could earn himself a suspension because he has failed to fulfill his mandate.
A source said that IGP Kale Kayihura called Kaweesi expressing his dissatisfaction with Omala.
Kayihura said this is the second time Besigye is playing them yet police has enough resources. But Omala is said to have defended himself saying the Command Intelligence in Kasangati was to blame because he (Omala) feeds on intelligence gathered and this time round things changed. When Red Pepper landed on motor mouthed Omala at CPS for a comment he said “I don’t have any words”.
