FDC stalwart vows to camp at Naggalama police till Besigye is released

Must read

The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Deputy Secretary General Harold Kaija has today vowed to camp at Naggalama Police Station until police releases Dr. Kiiza Besigye, who was arrested last week.

This morning opposition leaders stormed the station demanding for the release of the former FDC presidential candidate and the party’s Secretary for Mobilisation Ingrid Turinawe, who were arrested in Rukungiri on Thursday following the death of one Edson Nasasira.

At the time the two FDC stalwarts were in Rukungiri attending a campaign rally for FDC presidential hopeful Patrick Amuriat Obol, and police has since been holding them in connection with Nasasaira’s death.

The rally in Rukungiri was interrupted by police on grounds that the accused did not notify them which resulted into scuffle between FDC supporters and police, with the latter hurling teargas and firing live bullets to disperse the rowdy crowd. Supporters pelted stones at police officers and in the process one person was found dead.

And, fielding questions today, Mr. Kaija said no police officer seems to know whether Dr. Besigye or Ms. Turinawe will be taken to court or released on bond.

“We are aware that the every file concerning FDC leaders is always at the desk of Inspector General of Police Gen. Kale Kayihura, no police officer the can tell the fate of the illegally detained FDC leaders for over 24 hours, instead claim that they are in a legal facility,” Kaija said, adding that police wants to charge the FDC officials with murder.

“The charges don’t stand because there is no stone that can be pelted from one side of the head and comes out on the other side, they want to concoct witness from Rukungiri; these are cases that all Ugandans know,” Mr. Kaija said.

Occasionally, Dr. Besigye has been brought to Naggalama police station whenever he is arrested from different parts of the country.
