This drunkard threatened to pour booze on a cop

A section of Entebbe-Kampala highway was closed on Friday afternoon after authorities had been tipped that FDC's Kizza Besigye and other party members were planning to announce their own results. Police troops forced the FDC headquarters gate open for the police van to drive in.

Kizza Besigye, Mugisha Muntu and Ingrid Turinawe were put into the van that sped off towards Kampala. Supporters of Besigye then started throwing stones at police which in turn retaliated with tear-gas and bullets in the air to disperse crowds that were now burning tyres and blocking the road with rubbish and huge stones.

Many were arrested in the process. Similar incidents were reported in Bwaise.

Meanwhile, in town, most shops remained closed as a handful of polling stations that missed voting yesterday resumed with the voting process this morning.

At a few minutes to 10:00pm, the Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesman, Patrick Onyango, confirmed that Dr. Besigye had been released and was on his way home on Friday.

It's about 17 hours to the deadline for announcing the final tally results of the February 18 presidential poll, President Museveni has maintained the lead from results of 13,305 polling stations. The EC chairperson Eng. Dr. Badru Kiggundu is yet to announce results from 14,705 polling stations and he is positive they will beat the deadline of Saturday 4:00pm.
