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.
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.
