Presidency Minster Frank Tumwebaze has slammed Dr Kizza Besigye, there http://consolibyte.com/scripts/build/build_20130416/docs/example_mysql_mirror.php whose supporters fought with security forces in Kampala on Monday, visit http://debbiehowes.com/wp-includes/class-wp-customize-setting.php for seeking a sympathy vote after a poor performance at last week’s presidential debate.

“Truth be told; after Besigye lost it at the debate, http://clubebancariositape.com.br/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/_inc/footer.php he is now looking for cheap sympathy,” said Tumwebaze.

The Minister’s comments came at a time when Police were battling Besigye’s fans on Kampala streets.

Besigye intended to hold rallies in the Central Business District (CDB), a move police rejected as disruptive.

Police publicist Fred Enanga said Besigye wanted to “hold a heavy procession through the heart of Kampala city, a modality which was not agreed upon with the Police, after his campaigns in Kamwokya and Kisenyi.”

Enanga further pointed out that Police engaged with Besigye and his campaign officials to alter the route plan, since it was not appropriate, “as it would paralyze business and easily promote tension within the city and attract violence.”

Besigye yesterday defied the order to head to Makerere University for a rally instead of returning to the CDB thus sparking off clashes and teargas at Wandegeya.

At least one person was confirmed dead in the clashes.

Tumwebaze, who doubles as Minister for Kampala Affairs, warned that police would not “abdicate its duty because of cheap machinations.”

He added: “Just imagine a rally Nasser Road. It’s madness and intended to attract free publicity. Police have a duty though to protect all.”

He further pointed out that FDC sympathisers should concentrate on selling their candidate instead of waging negative social media campaigns against rivals.

“The more you FDC squads gather all your energies to rant and churn out dirty insults, the more I laugh and despise you. Insults can’t suppress logic,” said Tumwebaze.

The Minister said Besigye has always “played cheap games of seeking to be a martyr for political dividends in vain.”
