A mysterious ‘communications device’ has reportedly been found in Forum for Democratic Change flag bearer Col (rtd) Dr Kizza Besigye’s vehicle.
According to Dr Besigye, the device was inserted in the vehicle after it was impounded by police.
“My vehicle was released from Wandegeya Police Station after 3 weeks! Thorough inspection discovered this dangerous device!” Dr Besigye wrote on his Twitter handle.
At the peak of the presidential elections last month, Besigye’s car was impounded by police after confrontation following refusal for the FDC flag bearer to address his supporters.
By press time efforts to contact police spokesperson Fred Enanga over the matter were futile as he did not pick his phone.
Meanwhile, court is expected to make a ruling on the police siege at Dr Kizza Besigye’s home in Kasangati later today.
Since the announcement of the 2016 election results in favour of candidate Yoweri Museveni of the National Resistance Movement (NRM), the FDC flag bearer has been under restricted movement, with dozens of police officers pitching camp at his home.
