“House-Arrested without a new Charge”: Dr. Kizza Besigye could not go to registrar at the Judge; where he were to honour his bail requirements!
Again, this is again, again! The Police Force under IGP Kale Kayihura have decided with no pre-warning or added charges to house-arrest Forum for Democratic Change leader Dr. Kizza Besigye. Just because they can so, it seems. The inevitable actions of impunity and disgracing the rule of law. Here is one take on the matter!
“Kizza Besigye has been stopped from going to court to fulfill part of his bail conditions as ordered by High Court Judge Masalu Musene. Besigye is supposed to report to the registrar of Criminal Division of High Court once every after two weeks” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016).
With this the Courts are not getting him by the registration that are supposed to be kept until further notice, as the proceedings of the case and the collection of evidence is supposed to happen simultaneously as the charged possible felon can walk and do his normal business until trial. That is not happening with Besigye, as he has to be House-Arrested in Kasangati, Wakiso. Yet, again, just like during the weekend when he been picked up the Police Force and “black-Van” the Torture Van of Kifeesi Police Squad to silence the man and his activities.
He were barred from answer and follow requests from the courts. He is isolated without any consideration to his freedoms, liberty or justice. It is containing him without any justification. The imminent question: are the any precautions rules and acts that can validate these efforts against the citizen?
We should ask that as the continued strive to keep him at bay, arrest, house arrest and detain. To tow his car home and take him to nearest police post together with loyal allies. That is what happens at any threshold of any week. The continued validation of concern of justice arise anytime he thinks of leaving home and going to do both party-work and for instance ordinary stuff as taking out shillings at the Bank.
This is just enough. They continue to arrest, thief the freedoms and liberties of random citizens, but he is not allowed the same. The double Standard that was evident during the General Election is at standstill now after the ballot is cast and sworn-in 10th Parliament. If this does show how weak and fragile the current government is that they without question, without charges are detaining fellow citizens and the ones not fearing the restrictions coming from doing so. We can only a matter of time ask ourselves if the people can accept one of their own are harassed and tortured in this manner. That none of what think is ordinary is there, because the Security Organizations are there to detain and house arrest you at any point and have the Torture Van to pick you up to Nagalama Police Station in Mukono if you ever think of leaving.
