Besigye Tells Supporters to Continue Fighting for Better Uganda

-A +A

Ugandan opposition leader Dr. Kizza Besigye of the Forum for Democratic Change has urged his supporters not to give up the fight for a better Uganda.

Besigye told his supporters that they are fighting to reclaim their country, and that until that is achieved there is no turning back, the Ugandan Monitor reported.

Besigye, who came second in last February’s presidential election, was arrested and charged with treason after he declared himself president. He was released on bail Tuesday. In issuing the bail, the judge admonished the opposition leader to refrain from acts of violence and preserve peace in the community until his case is disposed-off.

George Kanyeihamba, a former justice of the Ugandan Supreme Court, said while the judge has the power to set conditions for bail, especially in the case of a treason charge, Ugandans are baffled by the restrictions which they may view as depriving Besigye of his constitutional rights.
