The Police have said that FDC leader Kizza Besigye and Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago will remain under preventive arrest until further notice. Besigye is being prevented from leaving his Kasangati home while Lukwago remains at his home in Rubaga a Kampala suburb.
Police monday morning blocked Lukwago when he attempted to leave saying he was headed to work. And the police have also denied they tried to force their way into Besigye’s home Sunday night.
Via their twitter feed, the police said ‘the retired col. was scared of Police officers on foot patrol.’ Lukwago and Besigye were last week arrested twice and cautioned and returned home for detention.
Besigye has twice beaten security and held walk to freedom demonstrations in town. Government has banned opposition political rallies during the Jubilee week
The Uganda Police Force and its sister security agencies would like to inform Ugandans that there is no single military officer that stepped foot at the home of FDC Leader, Dr Kizza Besigye. There were only Police officers who were doing their normal night foot patrol along the road that Dr. Besigye saw and as a politician he thought it would fit in his propaganda by twisting it that Police and the Army had invaded his home. He sent out messages begging Ugandans to rescue him yet he was not attacked at all. The Uganda Police and all the security agencies are mandated to provide security to people and their property, and it’s this duty they were carrying out by patrolling the area.
