8:00am: Uganda Police Force has Monday morning deployed around the FDC headquarters in Kampala in the wake of a Constitutional Court order barring acts of defiance organised by the opposition political party.

The anti-riot police officers, sources say, are under instructions to disperse FDC supporters today should they proceed with their weekly prayers at the office.

FDC President Maj Gen Mugisha Muntu today vowed to hold the prayers irrespective of threats from security and a court order.

“If government goes ahead to effect the court order banning the prayers at FDC headquarters, we will take them to churches and mosques,” warned Muntu in what appears a bigger strategy to keep the government on its toes.

The political tension has been heightened by FDC’s threats to form a parallel government and hold protests ahead of president Museveni’s inauguration on May 12.

FDC maintain they won the February presidential elections but government officials say the party has not only failed to substantiate their claims but are cultivating ground for violence.

A court messenger yesterday served the FDC with a petition whose judgement was made by Justice Kavuma this past Friday.

Officials said the messenger was as well looking for Besigye.

Appearing on NBS television today morning, Government spokesperson Shaban Bantariza said, “There is nothing to worry about, save for the rain.”

On planned protests, Bantariza warned that, “Those planning to disrupt the swearing-in ceremony perhaps want to test and see the wrath of the state.”

He cautioned that while freedoms are important, “they stop where law starts.”

Sources say the military is taking full control of security in the city ahead of the swearing-in ceremony.
