A total of 98 people have been arrested in relation to the walk-to-work related chaos as confirmed by the police spokesperson Judith Nabakooba during a press birefing in Kampala on Monday.

Unlike other days, Besigye was this time violent as they bundled him on to the police pick-up. He had not moved a long distance from his home before the police intercepted his walk-to-work protesting the high prices of fuel and other food stuffs.

He was produced in court on Monday afternoon where he was later released on a non cash bail of Shs 10mn. In areas like Bweyogerere, Kireka and Banda, it was a nasty scene as roads were blocked with burning tyres, stone throwing at the police that was retaliating with tear gas carnisters and shooting to disperse crowd that had become rowdy.

Over 90Kms away from Kampala, it was another serious battle as police tried to unblock the road in Bugembe that had been blocked by demonstrators who were joining those protesting the high fuel. They even got the extent of stopping commuter taxis forcing passengers out to join them in the protests.

Norbert Mao(DP) was produced before a KCC Magistrate Court and six others but he rejected bail saying that even the following day, he will be arrested so he was better off staying in prison. 

He was sent to Luzira prison where he will spend 2 weeks and return to court on May 2. UPC's Olara Otunnu was equally arrested and produced before a Nakawa court magistrate who released him on a court bond.

Meanwhile, opposition  activists have stood their ground and promised to continue with the walk-to-work protests which will be held every Monday and Thursday.
