Kizza says due to this, his visitors and Ugandans at large can’t access him at his home in Kasangati, Wakiso district. Besigye was put under house arrest after he tried to strike over high commodity prices in the country last week.
The former presidential candidate said they have stationed eight police patrol vehicles at and around his home since Thursday last week.
Apparently, colleagues of the (PFT) Red Card Front, who had come to check on him at home, weren’t allowed anywhere near the home.
“They couldn’t get through the roadblock at the junction to our home. Even the food they brought for us had to go back. We shall, definitely, overcome,” he said.
According to him, the intention is to silence him so that Ugandans can ignore the ongoing situation.
Last week, while speaking to the media, he advised that government cuts the number of legislators down from 500. He says they are only adding to expenses the country can’t afford.
“We can’t breathe, reduce the cost of living,” he said, noting that President Museveni should do away with Resident District Commissioners (RDCs).
However, this act by Besigye tore the Opposition apart specifically NUP and FDC. NUP supporters said Besigye wants a game because he has been quiet all this while.
