Kizza Besigye arrested again as he was leaving his him to attend FDC meeting

Col. Dr Kizza Besigye has been arrested on Monday afternoon, 29th Feb 2016 after he attempted to leave his home in Kasangati to attend the FDC meeting organized today 29th at the party headquarters, Najjanankumbi, Entebbe road, Kampala.
Kizza Besigye who has been kept under house arrest and is still not allowed to leave his home till the unknown time was intercepted by the police that has been guarding the residence of Col Kizza Besigye. The Management meeting today was meant to draw the FDC road map and also to decide as to whether as a party, FDC should go to the courts of law to contest against the electoral results that declared the incumbent president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni a winner with 60% and the FDC candidate Kizza Besigye with 35%.
Kizza Besigye works as the chairman mobilization for Rukungiri District on the FDC committee and was the party flag bearer in the concluded presidential elections. He is among the founders of the party and the chief founder. Being denied a chance to attend the party meeting means something a lot to the party where Kizza Besigye is a pillar.
The 10 days in which law gives those who are not satisfied with the elections to go to court are ending tomorrow on 1st March 2016 therefore FDC has only today as a day to decide whether to challenge the electoral commission results or not. Besigye has not been allowed to freely move to consult his legal advisers, gather and collect enough evidence to prove in courts of law the evidence of electoral malpractices. Kizza Besigye has also been denied access his lawyers and one of his lawyers David Mpanga who came to visit him last week was denied entry by police.
Dr Kizza Besigye I guess should be put in the Guinness Book of Records as the most arrested politician in the shortest time. The opposition political figure has been arrested more than 10 times since the week of the elections and has been arrested more than 50 times since 2011.
