FDC’s Dr. Besigye Appears At Nakawa Court

Former FDC president Dr Kiiza Besigye has arrived at the Nakawa Magistrate’s Court under tight security.

He has been delivered to the court in a tinted bus, accompanied by three police patrol vehicles, prison vehicles.

Meanwhile security has been tightened with access to the court premises restricted.

In a rather unusual move, the court’s gate has been closed and members of the public and journalists denied access.

Most of the roads leading to the court have also been blocked with access limited to security personnel.

The former FDC presidential candidate is appearing before the Nakawa chief magistrate Remmy Mawanda for mention of treason charges labeled against him.

On Monday this week Moroto Chief Magistrate, Charles Yeteise granted state prayers to transfer Dr. Besigye from Moroto to Luzira Prisons, prompting the chief registrar Paul Gadenya to allocate the case file to Nakawa Magistrate’s Court.
