“The opposition had planned to hold the rally at Hilltop Hotel but the police moved fast to cordon it off,” says an eyewitness.


Earlier on, Gen Muntu and Bishop Zac Niringiye were picked from Voice of Kigezi located in Kabale town and put behind bars for holding a talk show.


The radio was later sealed off by police that had deployed in almost all corners of Kabale town.


After reaching an understanding, Gen Muntu and Bishop Zac were released but warned against carrying on with the rally.


Joined by Fr Gaetano Batanyenda a few moments after the release, Gen Muntu told his supporters who had gathered ready to be addressed, that the rally could not go and would be rescheduled to some other unspecified date.


Together with many other officials and leaders from the various political parties, Gen Muntu decided to return to Kampala before being intercepted the second time.


The leaders were again re-arrested on the orders of Kigezi Regional Police Commander, Olivia Wawire, and whisked off to an unknown destination.

Ex-FDC President, Kizza Besigye, who had just arrived was forced to flee as police moved to arrest him too.


This is the third time police is foiling opposition free and fair election campaign.


The first time was in Mbale where Bishop Zac was teargassed to choking point and detained for some good time.


The second time was in Soroti over the weekend where police too dispersed opposition leaders after showering them with canister after canister of teargas.
