Finally Dr. Kizza Besigye and the other ones with him are detained after a long drive and being towed over the mountains. He is now detained at Ntungamo Police Station. Nobody knows for what reason the NRM regime and Uganda Police Force have for detaining him there and taking him through the narrow mountain roads. This just proves the consistent actions of the Police Force against Besigye and his loyal officials as Lukwago and other.
““He is currently being driven in the police car escorted to Kampala. Crossing into Rukungiri secretly was a big threat to the security of the people in the area. His arrest was preventive” Mr Maate said” (Daily Monitor, 19.04.2016).
