Must read

As Ugandans await the outcome of Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) presidential aspirant Dr Kizza Besigye’s case challenging his continued detention, Uganda Police say they will leave his Kasangati if court rules so.

“Dr Besigye through his lawyer David Mpanga reported us (Police) to the High Court and the Kasangati Grade one court claiming that Police was illegally detaining him and stopping him from free movement as citizen but we are waiting for the final determination of the matter. The Kasaganti decision is set for tomorrow at 10am and if court orders police to withdraw from his home in Kasangati that will be obeyed,”  the chief spokesperson of police, Fred Enanga said today in an interview.

Kasangati Grade one Magistrate, Prossy Katushabe on Monday denied the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) request to dismiss the case that was filed against the Inspector General of Police and the area Police Commander ordering them to stay away from Dr. Besigye’s home.

In her ruling on Monday, Grade One Magistrate Prossy Katushabe said Besigye was right to sue the IGP and RPC before asking Besigye’s lawyer David Mpanga to file his submissions.

Dr Kizza Besigye has been confined to his home since the presidential elections ended, with police claiming that his detention is only his fault since he intends to disrupt peace and security of the nation through use of language that incites violence.
