“Retired Col. Dr. Kiiza Besigye has hit out at President Yoweri Museveni for incarcerating him in Moroto Prison on grounds of treason after the 2016 general elections. Besigye said that it would have been President Museveni to be charged of treason because he has betrayed Ugandans. The Opposition leader also drew a comparison of former Ugandan presidents claiming that even IDD Amin who never had an education still stands out with his contribution to national development” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016)
“As always, no one informed me why I was arrested & no document was given to me on release. I’d hung onto this form- leaving property behind” – Dr. Kizza Besigye
Here is photoes of how he arrived home:
“Police van just brought me back from Naggalama Police cells to the police camp that our home has become! Waiting to take me back next time” – Dr. Kizza Besigye
My 2 Cents:
The Power of Impunity, Ladies and Gentlemen! Not giving a crap of decency or legality of their actions as they just pick-up the man straight from home, not caring about charges or sentencing. Detaining him because he exists. NRM and Uganda Police Force can be proud of their level impunity! Peace.
He did not get a charge or a reason for his day in detention and losing freedom on the Independence day! What he got was the acknowledgement of what he had on himself. The Police Force under IGP Kale Kayihura is more a NRM junta, than policing when it comes to law and order in Uganda. They are taking prisioners without chargers or court orders as they are allowed to do as the please. This is proof with this document of the disgraceful acts from Uganda Police Force. Peace.
