Police has today morning blocked former Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) president Dr Kizza Besigye in Mpelerwe where he was slated to participate in a parallel Anti-Corruption walk with other opposition members. Besigye and company were supposed to start from katonga then trasverse the whole city but was blocked and taken back to his home.
Dr Besigye left his home which was previously under police siege to go and participate in a parallel anti-corruption walk.
At around Mpererwe in Wakiso District, police blocked the car in which he was traveling and towed it back to his home.
Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson Mr Patrick Onyango said they were trying to contain the traffic in the city but would give more details about the matter with time.
“You know the traffic in the city is too bad. We are trying to contain it. Let me find out more information about the subject and I will get back to you,” Mr Onyango said.
The traffic in the city came to a standstill after several roads leading to and outside the city centre were sealed off and cars restricted as President Museveni marched to Kololo in one of his efforts to stamp out corruption that has cost the country billions of shillings.
