Demos: Besigye, Gen. Kayihura Sign New Agreement


information pills geneva;”>In a statement released Friday, Bunamwaya argues it was Misindye FC that approached FCC for the adjournment.

Below is the full statement.

We hereby respond as follows to media reports in regard to the above subject where some media houses and/or their representatives have aired and published information that we deem derogatory to the image of Bunamwaya SC; notably an article in Thursday’s Daily Monitor “Bunna, we can do with more honesty’’.

The mandate to organize, release and reschedule fixtures lies with the Tournament Organising Committee (TOC) and in the case of the Bell Uganda Cup (BUC), the FUFA Competitions Committee (FCC).

Bunamwaya SC did not in any way engage the FCC to reschedule the said match but instead it was Misindye FC for the reasons given to the FCC.

FCC having considered Misindye’s plea engaged Bunamwaya SC about the proposed reschedule and we agreed on the date the match will be played on April 6.

This was before the National Team was summoned.

Bunamwaya SC eventually received a formal communication from FCC in regard to the change of fixture on Monday, 14:00Hrs.

It is unfair to malign Bunamwaya SC for erroneousness in the previews of media houses thereof.

We have learnt that KCC, our opponents in the next USL fixture at Buikwe that was also rescheduled to 14th April 2012, also have three players on the team to face Egypt in Sudan this evening.

By all means, the fixture would not take place. It was only right for a club to take an initiative to inform the USL of that development, this happened to be Bunamwaya SC. It should be noted that KCC also had earlier requested for the same as per the rules.

It is completely out of line in all honesty for someone to suggest and concoct stories in disguise of ‘behind the scenes analysis’ to insinuate and foster unnecessary hatred towards Bunamwaya SC as a club/company.

In conclusion, Bunamwaya started its journey to professionalism and we are walking our strategy, its evident in the way we have been engaging our stakeholders including the media among others, we endeavour to be open, honest and transparent.

cheap geneva;”>Before he was released, page Besigye signed a document, consenting to certain conditions.

The conditions of Besigye’s release, according to Kayihura, which he agreed to and signed, were as follows: “That you desist from engaging in any activity or actions that can lead to the causing of physical injury to yourself or any other person, damage to property, and or unlawful obstruction on any highway”.

This literally implies that Besigye can only organize or participate in any political assembly authorized and supervised by security services.

Kayihura notes these conditions came into effect immediately on receipt of signature.

“In my role as IGP it is my duty to ensure the safety of all and it is with these conditions in mind that I implore others to also follow the conditions as outlined above and agreed to and signed by Dr. Besigye,” the police boss notes.

It’s very unclear whether Besigye will honour his commitment to stop protests that have since paralysed the business tempo in Kampala.

Besigye last December declared that 2012 would be a year of bloodshed and liberation.

He has since led protests that have given government a run for their money. Kayihura says Besigye-led demonstrations have caused destruction of property, traffic interruptions and loss of innocent lives.

Already, Besigye and other opposition activists are in court facing charges of holding an illegal assembly that led to the death of police officer John Bosco Ariong.

The FDC president was at approximately 7:30pm released on bond from Kasangati police station from his preventative arrest under section 24(2)(b) of The Police Act.
