Besigye is expected to appear before the Kabale high court on Monday but says he is not worried with charges against him.

“Though am going to court on Monday, am not worried about all those charges against me because I know and am sure that I did not commit any; a reason as to why whenever I have been arrested and taken to court they always dismiss all the cases without any cost and even when I have not yet defended myself on the charges,” Besigye said
