The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Leader Kizza Besigye was on Wednesday morning stopped from flying to Entebbe aboard a Kenyan Airways flight KQ410 sighting intelligence reasons.
The airline through it's CEO offered another ticket to the opposition leader for a flight that was scheduled to leave JKIA at 5:50pm but the opposition leader felt it was not right to travel at night.
He has now rescheduled his travel plans and will travel to Kampala on Thursday morning using KQ410 that will touch Entebbe Airport at 9:00am. It should be noted that Thursday is the day for the swearing in ceremony for President Museveni who won the Feb 18 Presidential poll.
Dr. Kizza Besigye who came second in the Feb 18 poll has been in Nairobi where he was being treated for different ailments and was now trying to come back to Uganda before his travel plan was rescheduled against his will.
It is however not clear whether or not he will be coming tomorrow as there are conflicting reports of Thursday and Friday at 9:00am. FDC's Anne Mugisha writes on her wall that: "KQ has confirmed KB's flight for TOMORROW, Thursday May 12, 2011 departing at 7:55am, arriving 9:00am or thereabouts"
