Uganda police surround Kizza Besigye’s home in Kampala

Uganda police have deployed around the homes of opposition chief Kizza Besigye, Forum for Democratic Change national mobilisation secretary Ingrid Turunawe and Kampala Mayor Erias Lukwago ahead of MP Bobi Wines return to Court Marshall.

The officers in pick-up and trucks surrounded and blocked the residences in Kasangati and Wakaliga in the capital Kampala.

Ms Turinawe told the Daily Monitor that the siege that started at 5am is unjust.

“This injustice must stop, my home is under siege,” she said.

The officers, she said, have blocked her son from going to school.

“My son (a university student), who was going to school, has been pushed back into the gate, I can’t understand their real motive,” she said.

“He was going to school but he met police officers out of the gate and they blocked him; they asked him if I was in the house and he told them I wasn’t in,” she added.

It is her son who informed Ms Turinawe of the deployment.

When morning came, Ms Turinawe said, she attempted to seek explanations from the officers in vain.

“None of them has told me anything, they are simply there, standing and not saying a word,” she said.

Police is yet to comment about their action but Ms Turinawe insists no amount of deployment will block her from going about her pre-planned “business.”

All the routes to Lukwago’s home have been blocked and he has been refused to get out of his house.

The residences of Mr Besigye, and Allan Ssewanyana, a Ugandan sports journalist, human resource manager and politician, have also been surrounded.
