Uganda : Police stop Besigye’s planned anti-corruption walk

Police have stopped a planned parallel anti-corruption walk by former Forum for Democratic Change President Dr Kizza Besigye on Wednesday.

Dr Besigye’s team were  planning a walk similar to that being organised by the State House Anti-Corruption Unit where the chief walker is President Yoweri Museveni.

Preliminary plans by Dr Besigye indicate that the walk would start from his office at Katonga Road to the Constitution Square.

However, Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesman, Mr Patrick Onyango said they were not notified about a parallel walk and wouldn’t allow it.

“We aren’t aware of any walk from Katonga Road to the Constitution Square and we shall not allow any illegal activity,” Mr  Onyango said.

Police on Wednesday morning besieged Besigye’s home in Kasangati in order to deny him way to the venue where his parallel anti-corruption walk was supposed to take place.

President Museveni will be walking from the Constitution Square to Kololo Independence Grounds in a bid to bolster commitment to eliminate corruption.
