I Will Resume Protests Immediately Police Leaves My Home—Besigye

Opposition leader, Kizza Besigye has said he won’t give up on his plans to protest the high commodity prices and high costs of living. Besigye was put under house arrest by the police on Thursday last week after he tried to leave his home to hit the streets and rally other Ugandans to join him in protest.

Early this week, a group of MPs especially those that lean towards the Forum for Democratic Change visited Besigye at his home where he told them that he was not about to give up on his plans and that he would resume immediately the police leaves his home.

The police has been deployed at his home since Thursday last week.

“I have instructed my lawyers to file my illegal detention case in court as a legal means for police to leave my house. As soon as they leave, I will get my moving microphone and start mobilising people to wake up,” Besigye said.

The MPs that visited him included; Soroti Woman MP Anna Adeke Ebaju, Gweri County MP Tom Julius Ekudo, Kabale Municipality MP Nicholas Kamara, Rukungiri Municipality MP Naboth Namanya, and Buhweju County Francis Mwijukye MP

The MPs were initially blocked by police manning the gate but after making various calls they were let in and they presented Besigye with different gifts.
