Mbarara Tense As Besigye Aides Are Granted Bailed


prescription salve "sans-serif"; font-size: 12pt;”>Outspoken Kampala Women MP Nabilah Ssempala, who last year accused FDC Electoral Commission of incompetence, is said to have joined NRM.

The fears have been sparked by her lukewarm attitude towards party activities including walk-to-work protests. “She rarely attends party meetings or activities.

Nabilah used to be critical of President Yoweri Museveni’s policies but she now unusually relates with NRM bosses as colleagues,” says a source. More info shows the legislator does not even answer calls from her party members, saying “Najjanankumbi meetings bore me.”

Similar rumours came up last year and Col. Kizza Besigye was at one time, shortly after addressing a press conference at Christ The King Church in Kampala, compelled to quiz the controversial legislator: “Nabilah, where have you been?” Whether this piece of gossip is true or not time will tell; but there is no smoke without fire.

Police says walk-to-work activities are aimed at overthrowing the government of President Yoweri Museveni. The momentum of walk-to-work in Mbarara seems to underline the growing opposition in Museveni’s home area.

In a related development, three FDC top officials who were arrested Tuesday as they walked alongside Col. Kizza Besigye have today been set free by Court sitting in Kasangati.

Fred Kato (Besigye driver), Julius Amanya and Moses Byomugisha have today been released on bail.

They were facing charges of malicious damage to property, assault and causing grave injuries to a cop.

Top FDC shots including Gen. Mugisha Muntu, Nandala Mafabi and Alice Alaso attended the court session.

Youthful FDC supporters cheered as the trio was granted bail. However, there were rumours that a plan to re-arrest them was in the pipeline after police tightened security at the court premises.

But Kampala police region spokesman Ibin Ssenkumbi says “the deployment is aimed at maintain law and order in the area.”
