Kizza Besigye

Former  FDC presidential candidate Dr. Kizza Besigye Kifefe  has dragged the  Civil Aviation Authority (CAA)  to High Court for allegedly conniving  with  security agencies who pulled  him off the steps of the plane on 3rd/October 2016 while at Entebbe Airport on his return from the United Kingdom.

Besigye through his lawyer  Ladislous Rwakafuuzi  accuses  the Aviation Authority of violating his rights of free movement when they diverted   his planned movements from the Airport to his Kasangati home  and drove him against his will through remote routes.

Besigye adds that this plan also denied him the right to meet and move from the  Airport  in company of his  family, approved friends, viagra associates and supporters who had waited for him at the Airport  hence violating his freedom of Association.

Besigye added that before disembarking from the staircase, a staff of CAA wearing a reflector jacket pulled him from the last step of  the staircase and grabbed him by his trouser towards the CAA vehicle which drove him  away before he could even go through immigration procedures at the Airport.
