FDC’s Besigye Still Held By Police In An Disclosed Location

Forum for Democratic Change (FDC’s) Dr. Kiiza Besigye is still detained by police in an undisclosed gazzeted detention facility.

Dr. Besigye was arrested yesterday after he beat security and made his way to the city center from his home in Kasangati where he had been under close surveillance by the police.

It was earlier been reported that Besigye was being held at Naggalama police station in Mukono, the police spokesperson for Kampala Metropolitan Patrick Onyango has refuted the reports.

Onyango has declined to disclose the whereabouts of Besigye saying it would jeopardize investigations.

He adds that the opposition leader is to be charged with disobeying lawful orders.

Besigye and several other opposition leaders have for several days been prevented from leaving their homes for fear of what the police chief called disturbing public peace.
