The police have been withdrawn from the home of Dr. Kizza Besigye.

Dr. Besigye was placed under house arrest on Friday after attempting to mobilize Ugandans to protest the high cost of living.

Yesterday, the police which had barricaded the road leading to Besigye’s home were withdrawn together with the trucks that had blocked the entrance to and out of the politicians’ residence.

Besigye’s vehicle that had been impounded on the day of his arrest and parked at Kasangati Police Station was driven to his home.

On Tuesday, officials from the Uganda Human Rights Commission-UHRC, led by Crispin Kugiza Kaheru, visited Besigye to assess his condition following his arrest.

According to Kaheru, they discussed the matter with security personnel, who promised to vacate his home on Wednesday.

Despite withdrawing from Besigye’s home, the police have deployed heavily in Kasangati town.
Derick Fredric Namakajo, the legal advisor for the Justice Forum and People’s Front for Transition, says that they will renew their protests against the high commodity prices.

He says that it is their constitutional mandate to hold those in government accountable and demonstrate their desertification.
Dr. Besigye on Tuesday said that he met members of his pressure group and they resolved to intensify and widen the campaign.

Dr. Besigye and his pressure group believe that their drive will awaken the citizens and protest the government’s failure to act on high commodity prices.
