“At 3:00am this morning, Police in Fort Portal came to Eden lodges where part of the FDC team had slept, woke them up and forced them to open their rooms. Police then confiscated anything they found labeled with Dr. Besigye such as t-shirts, calendars, caps, banners, flags etc that were meant for our supporters,” Byamugyisha said.

He added; “Our local leadership in Fort Portal together with the Kizza Besigye security detail have intervened and we hope sanity can be restored.”

He said if “NRM wants to use its partisan police and the crime promoters” are interested in disrupting Besigye legitimate activities (campaigns) in Kabarole today, “Kale Kayihura’s police helicopter should be stationed somewhere around Fort portal so that he can evacuate the wounded crime preventers.”
