Today there been certain actions done by the Police to go against activists and political affiliated to opposition parties in Uganda. Not that this is news, it as usual as the sun rise every morning. It is modus operandi of the Police at this point.
Yesterday Dr. Kizza Besigye had to leave his driver in Masaka as he was supposed to go to court in Kampala. He reached the Buganda Road Court. Where there was first detained there and not accepted to leave. That was not until hours after when the FDC officials discussed the matter with the court officals as David Kato presented himself in court. The judges then sat down after the discussion and gave the People’s President Driver bail. And let him go.
The reports a few hours later that the Court after the discussion with the FDC Officials, decided to counter their bail and cancelled their bail on David Kato. He will now spend the weekend at Luzira Prison.
Well, this wasn’t enough for the NRM-Regime. They continue the persecution of opposition activist as the democratic nation it is?
In another part of the country the Police continue to detain fellow activist Allan Kitonsa Saava. He is being held at the Kabuli Police Post. The story from well-founded sources is that: “Kitonsa was duped by an OB, who now works as a state agent, for a meeting. He then handed him over. He was 1st taken to Kabalagala police post, and now at Kibuli police post”.
This happens to him after he released this quote to IGP Kale Kayihura online two days ago:
“Violence is initiated by those who oppress, who exploit, who fail to recognize others as persons—not by those who are oppressed, exploited, and unrecognized”.
Seems like this words are so true as he is now detained at the police post in Kibuli. Seems like the questioning of the NRM-Regime is illegal, by the way the Police detain this fellow gentlemen. Also the driver of Dr. Kizza Besigye have been in the spotlight of the Police since 2013 as he is driver of the front-runner in the opposition. Seems, like that is not allowed at this point. To drive Dr. Kizza Besigye, as well as not write online against the IGP Kayihura. Peace.
