Dr Kiiza Besigye has been arrested and driven off to Nagalama police station by police as he left his home in Kasangati with a group opposition leaders who had visited him this afternoon.

Earlier opposition Members of Parliament led by Mukono Municipality’s Betty Nambooze and a group of lawyers led by Ladislous Rwakafuzi said wanted Parliament recalled to discuss Dr. Besigye’s continued harassment by the police.image

Addressing journalists, Nambooze said the continued detention of Besigye and the heavy deployment of police at his home was is illegal.

She says the petition will be ready on Monday and on Tuesday, they will start collecting signatures from MPs to recall parliament.

They want government to tell the country why Besigye is still under house arrest, who is responsible for the police officers at his home and who is supposed to pay his bills among other issues.
