Age Limit: Besigye have been detained this weekend and expect him to be in trouble until the Magyezi bill are PASSED!
After the troubles that has consistent of the state monitoring and following Dr. Kizza Besigye, his defiance and resistance of the state orders. His issues has persistent, since the fatal Anti Age Limit rally in Rukungiri, that was supposed to be at the Rukungiri Stadium on the 18th October 2017. The life of the people’s president has since been in the powers of the police. They have decided his faith. So on the 19th October he drove from Rukungiri towards Kabale. When the Police blocked his white van, the car that had been directly shot at with live bullets.
The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) was detained on the spot with no knowledge of his whereabouts or his charges. He was arrested suddenly a day after the police had harassed and killed two civilians who was attending the rally. This acts been so bad that the IGP Kale Kayihura has sacked the DPC of Rukungiri, but don’t expect any of the police officers to be punished. They will walk free, they follow orders from above.
On Saturday, the 21st October it was clear that Besigye was locked up in Mukono and Naggalama Police Station and was charged with murder. He was seen by the authorities as a killer, even if he didn’t carry a gun or knife, but a traveling and preparing a rally in Rukungiri. Clearly, this is forged charges, like the last years treason charges. That he still hasn’t freed from, so he is still under investigations for treason, as we speak.
The Police are clearly trying to send a message, that the biggest and most popular leaders who are against the Age Limit. Will be incarcerated and spend time in jail. For now he is not allowed bail or pay bond. Besigye is just behind bars, because him and Patrick Amurait Oboi was planning rallies. Not because of violence and killings. That is state sanctioned violence we have seen so many times before.
The National Resistance Movement (NRM) are really trying to strangle the republic. They are doing it again, just like they did in he months before the general election in 2016 and within months after, until the President was again sworn-in for his seventh term. Therefore, the President knows this will not bring fear into Besigye, he has been here before and is not stressed by it. The FDC and former Presidential Candidate, deserves credit for all of the times he has served without being criminal. For all the times he has been behind bars without any proper charge, and all the time he has been court without having any proper case built against him. Besigye has proven his resilience and mentality to stand against oppression and dictatorship. The FDC leader has no fear and proven, again and again, that he will not stop.
Another forged and fake charge will not scare Besigye, but what the world do need to know. Is that Besigye has now spent 3 days at Naggalama Police Station and we can just start to count how long the state will keep him. If he is freed, expect him to be House Arrested and be blocked from public gatherings, until the Age Limit is settled in Parliament. Peace.
