Besigye crowds disrupt city again after bail extended

Former presidential candidate Dr. Kiiza Besigye Tuesday reported back to the Kampala High court registry as required by terms of his bail granted to him in July over treason charges.

He appeared in company of his lawyer Earnest Kalibbala before deputy registrar Mary Khainza who extended his bail for another two weeks till October 17.

After reporting, Besigye briefly spoke to journalists wondering why he continues to report to a court where his treason case has not even been committed, yet he does not deny winning the February elections.

Besigye said that despite reporting to Nakawa Magistrates Court for five  months now over the treason case, the  state is still investigating the matter instead of committing him to the high court for trial.

He then called for  court’s intervention into the abuse of its process. He said there should be a stop to “acts and people who use the courts to undermine the rights of litigants.”

Crowds built up later when he passed by Cranes Bank, Clock Tower and later to the FDC headquarters in Najjanakumbi. Riot police followed him throughout, and had several argument with him on the route he should take.

Besigye’s attempts to return to the city centre after the Najjanakumbi visit was stopped by police, at Clock Tower.

Police dragged his car instead back to his home in Kasangati. They later put him into a police car and delivered him home.
