Police Introduces Rare tactics To End Besigye’s Defiance Campaign

The police yesterday unveiled other new tactics to grip the FDC icon Dr. Kizza Besigye whenever he is suspected of causing chaos in the city.

Andrew Felix Kaweesi, the police spokesperson said the police is now going to use what he called “containment approach” in combination with the “preventive arrest” in order to bring the defiance campaign to the end.

“Once we get to know that he has mobilized groups to cause chaos, we shall subject him to preventive arrest laws. We shall also use containment approach depending on case by case basis,” Kaweesi said.

In the containment approach, Kaweesi said Besigye will be under security surveillance.

Fresh from a tour in Europe and USA, Besigye was stopped from leaving his Kasangati home yesterday morning.

It was only hours later that Dr. Besigye was let out by the police in the evening.

A day before he had been whisked away by security personnel as soon as he disembarked from the plane at Entebbe to his home in Kasangati there by killing the program of the day the FDC had for its strong leader.
