Winnie Byanyima Angry over Kizza Besigye Arrest

Byanyima says police should not have arrested Besigye


Eng Winnie Byanyima has slammed the arrest of her husband Dr Kizza Besigye in Naguru,  Kampala on Thursday evening.

A fiery Besigye stormed a house he alleged was NRM’s ‘election rigging centre’ before demanding its immediate inspection.

Police said the posh house was a security facility for hotlines communications and that civilians were restricted from accessing it.

This triggered a clash between Besigye and a police commander,  leading to the former’s evacuation from the scene to his residence in Kasangati,  Wakiso District.

Using her Twitter handle, Byanyima said the FDC ironman was “arrested when he visited a Naguru rigging command post.”

She added: “Lt Col Ndahura in charge of it.”

Police publicist Fred Enanga said the house also acts as an office of the newly created Crime Intelligence Unit.
