Besigye Arrested for the Fourth Time
Dr. Kizza Besigye has been arrested for the fourth time as he drove to his office. His car was surrounded by his supporters leaving the police with no choice but to have him arrested and use tear gas to disperse the huge crowd.
Of course the police did have the choice not to use violence against non-violent protesters.
Most schools are getting their holidays today so some parents requested Dr. Besigye not to walk to work this Thursday for the sake of their children and he obliged by driving, though it is not clear what pace his car was moving at the time of the arrest.
He is being held at Wandegeya police station. Details of the arrest will be availed as and when they are made available.
Meanwhile, the media has been warned over live broadcast of the walk to work demos which are being perceived as being one sided. The assumption is that, they show the police quelling demonstrators but not what causes the police to react.
During Easter, large groups of faithful people walk with the cross to various places but it’s not clear if the Easter walk won’t be mixed with those walking to protest the high fuel prices.

Valerie Tarico, Away Point: “Christian extremists in Uganda’s parliament are hoping that hunger and high gas prices will provide the cover they need to finally subject gay men to punishment of biblical proportions. They have introduced a bill, up for vote on May 11, that seeks life imprisonment for gay sex and, for repeat offenders, the death penalty. Last year, similar legislation was averted by international outrage. President Museveni was afraid of losing valuable aid dollars, and after outcry arose across the West, with Barack Obama calling the law ‘odious,’ Museveni prevented the bill from coming to a vote”: here.
