Opposition presidential candidate Dr. Kizza Besigye has said that his arrest and detention by Police on Monday was a calculated move to intimidate the public and discourage them from voting in Thursday’s election.

Speaking to journalists at his home in Kasangati, this the FDC flag-bearer said the policemen who arrested him even failed to explain why he was being held and whether he would be charged.

Besigye narrated that all this started as he made his way through the city heading for the different locations where he was slated to campaign.

“They blocked our cars and when we got out walking, information pills they arrested me,” he started.

“They started teargassing my supporters, bundled me into a police car and then drove me to Jinja Road Police Station. There, I tried to inquire why I was being held but no answer was given,” he said.

Besigye was then driven to his home in Kasangati where he addressed the press. After this, he tactfully sneaked out of his home without the knowledge of the policemen that were guarding it and set out for the city center where he was to address a rally at Makerere University and other locations.

After moving a distance from the visible range of the police guards, the FDC candidate stood through the open roof of his car and started waving at the crowds that had lined the road.

At Kalerwe (a neighboring trading center), policemen on a truck tried to interrupt the procession but they were overwhelmed by the huge crowd that was walking with him (Besigye).

At Wandegeya roundabout several police tracks with dozens of policemen arrived and started firing teargas and bullets to disperse the procession.

Several supporters ran away, some hid in the nearby buildings while others were left crying for help after getting several injuries.

By the time of filing this story, the police commandant of the operation was engaging Besigye in a negotiation in which he asked him to either drive back to his home and forget about his rallies or to get arrested at that point.

Besigye seems to have defiantly chosen the latter option as his car was later towed to Wandegeya Police Station.
