A group of Ugandans in London have today held a demonstration in support of Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) flag bearer Dr Kizza Besigye.
Among the afflictions leading to the demo is Dr Besigye’s continued confinement at his home in Kasangati and reported harassment of other opposition political actors.
Waving placards, the group converged in front of Uganda House, the official seat of Uganda’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom.
Following the announcement of president-elect Yoweri Museveni s the winner of the 2016 presidential elections, Dr Besigye rejected the results and vowed to continue with his earlier stated stance of ‘defiance’. Since then, on February 20, his movements have been restricted by police, and at times they arrest him during the day, only to return him home at night.
According to the FDC Twitter handle, the London petition has been signed and will be forwarded to the British Prime Minister David Cameron.
