The Leader of Opposition in Parliament Mr Wafula Oguttu on his twitter account wrote, “Under siege! Homes of most FDC senior leaders have been surrounded by the security forces.”

When contacted,[1] the FDC spokesperson who also doubles as Kyaddondo County East MP Ibrahim Ssemujju confirmed that his home in Kirinya Wakiso district had been surrounded by police Monday morning.[5]

“I don’t know why police has surrounded my home.[2] They came as I was preparing to go to our head offices in Najjanankumbi to organize our weekly press briefing,” he said.

Mr Ssemujju also said FDC secretary for mobilisation Ms Ingrid Turinawe has gone missing.[4]

“We are still looking for Ingrid Turinawe,[9] head of Mobilisation who is missing since yesterday (Sunday). We last heard of her when she was surrounded by military police in Gayaza trading centre,” he said.

According to him, Ms Turinawe was on her way to visit her daughter at school. By press time, our efforts to get police explanation failed as our repeated calls to the Force’s spokesperson Mr Fred Enanga and her deputy Ms Polly Namaye went unanswered.[1]

However, Police chief Kale Kayihura has on several occasions been reported in the media warning former FDC presidential candidate Kizza Besigye and other party officials against their defiance campaign ahead of president Yoweri Museveni swearing in slated for May 12.[5]

The warnings followed Court of Appeal order, blocking FDC leaders or any of the party’s agents against organising any procession or carrying on with the defiance campaign pending determination of a Constitutional case filed by government.

The ban came days to the May 12 presidential inauguration which FDC says is not valid. Dr Besigye has also been saying Mr Museveni’s fifth coming term in office is neither legal nor legitimate without an independent audit of the February 18 polls.[3]

Deputy Chief Justice Steven Kavuma who issued the order exparte (listening to only one side) said it shall remain in force four month a time in which the main application would be heard.[7]
