Kizza Besigye will know the fate of his bail application tomorrow. The political opposition figurehead, who faces treason charges, appeared at Kampala high court to hear his bail application
Besigye argued that he was uncertain of when his treason trial would commence and asked to be granted bail.
Appearing before Justice Musaalu Musene, Besigye presented five sureties, namely; FDC president Mugisha Muntu; Nandala Mafabi, Roland Mugume, Joyce Sebugwawo, and Buhweju MP Francis Mwijukye.
