Besigye expected in Court today

Former FDC presidential Candidate Dr. Kiiza Besigye is today expected to report to the High Court in Kampala over his alleged treason charges.

This was one of the bail conditions set for him by High Court Judge Wilson Masalu Musene, after he was released in July 2016.

Dr.Besigye was ordered to report before the Court’s Registrar twice a month but on 16th November 2016 his bail terms were revised after Deputy Registrar in-charge of criminal matters Eleanor Khainza noted that he suffers great inconvenience and costs in reporting back to court that frequently.

Besigye is accused of having sworn -in himself as president of Uganda and maintaining that he won the February presidential polls.

According to the Director of Public Prosecutions, this is against the legally prescribed processes through which one can ascend himself into the office of the president.
