“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.

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.
