It was the fourth attempt of the walk-to-work campaign when Dr. Besigye hit the road to his office in Najjanakumbi. This attempt was different because he left his home driving the his landcruiser.
The vehicle ran out of fuel at Kubiiri in Mulago. He opened the door and resorted to walking for the rest of the journey. This is when supporters surrounded him and started walking towards town.
Police swung into action and a mini scuffle ensued as supporters were trying to resist the police from arresting Dr. Kizza Besigye. The police later got hold of him to a police van that took him to Wandegeya police.
He was held briefly a Wandegeya police before heading to Nabweru court that was tightly guarded. He was charged with holding an unlawful assembly. Pleas by his lawyer in demanding for bail did not add up to much as the judge was engaged with other work and therefore not able to review Dr. Besigye's bail application in time.
He was remanded to Nakasongola prison where he will join DP's Norbert Mao who was transferred from Luzira to ensure his safety. Dr. Besigye will return to court on April 27.
