Police interjected the former FDC president today as he tried to move in protest of the high commodity prices. FDC used its social media platform to condemn this act.
“We condemn the continued violation of our founding President [email protected]’s right.Dr Besigye like any other Ugandan has a right to freely move within & outside the country. It is therefore illegal & unconstitutional for police to continue surrounding, barricading his house and restricting his movements.”
“Moreover, there is a court ruling stopping the state from turning Dr Kizza Besigye’s residence into a prison. We, therefore, demand the immediate withdrawal of police & military from Dr.Besigye’s residence & to stop interfering with his movements,” FDC added.
This is the second time, in two weeks that Police arrested Besigye arrested due to striking. He insists that the government has not done enough to solve the ongoing economic crisis.
Museveni while giving his speech yesterday, said striking is not the solution to the ongoing crisis because the whole world is experiencing it.
Some people however have said the Najjanankumbi based party is only coming out now yet they have been apparently neglecting him.
“Why is Kizza Besigye neglected by your teams that pretend to be behind him the likes of @MubarakMunyagwa, @PatrickAmuriat, Ssemujju, we may say he is busy in parliament????” a one Muhoozi said.
