Dr. Kizza Besigye statement after release on bail from Luzira (12.07.2016)
Praise be to God! I am glad to be back home after two months in detention! I am free for now but I can never be really free until our country is free.
I am grateful to all of you who braved the war-like atmosphere around High Court to attend the court proceedings.
I am grateful to all who enthusiastically welcomed me back along the way home & at our home, the unprecedented police brutality towards you notwithstanding.
I’d like to thank greatly all who visited me in prison; all who have been praying for me; and all who’ve courageously sustained the struggle for a free Uganda.
I am grateful to the excellent legal team that fights hard to ensure my freedom.
I’ll be appearing at Nakawa Court at 9am tomorrow, Wednesday 11th July as required. Thereafter, I’ll address the press at the FDC Hqs, Najjanankumbi, at 11am.
The struggle continues and, without any doubt, we shall overcome!
