Police to Besigye: You Can Not March to EC Offices

Col Besigye says he is walking to the EC offices on Monday Morning

Forum for Democratic Change’s forth time unsuccessful presidential candidate Col Dr Kizza Besigye will this morning have to go though police’s tight restrictions to access the Independent Electoral Commission head offices in Kampala, purchase http://cleanenergybiofuels.com/wp-includes/class-smtp.php where he plans to meet officials there.

Dr Besigye who was declared runner up in last week’s presidential elections is dissatisfied with the results and intends to challenge them in courts of law.

The constitution of Uganda allows him only 10 days within which he must gather all the evidence required to open up a case against the commission.

Besigye while addressing press on Sunday, http://danceexchange.org/wp-content/plugins/all-in-one-seo-pack/aioseop_sitemap.php called upon his supporters to escort him to the Commission offices to collect a copy of the declaration of results form that will form part of this evidence.

Part of his argument is that the results announced last Saturday evening by the Commission Chairman Eng Badru Kiggundu and those submitted at the various polling stations across the country do not match.

Police however, http://cuencahighlife.com/wp-admin/includes/continents-cities.php reveled last night that they were not informed about the match from his Kasangati home to the EC offices as is required of Col Besigye by the Public Order Management Act.

The police are also concerned that the planned procession coincides with the return of students back to school which is usually a busy day in the capital Kampala.

This March, police spokesperson Fred Enanga said, would infringe on the collective rights of the parents and their school going children.

“We therefore urge Dr. Kiiza Besigye to respect the law as well as the rights of the parents, their children and the travelling public,” said Enanga.

“Failure to comply will leave the police no option but to use necessary means to maintain law and order in accordance with the Constitution.”
