I’ll not return to court, swears Besigye

Besigye swears not to return to Nakawa court

Former opposition presidential candidate, Dr Kizza Besigye, has renewed his oath never to return to Nakawa Chief Magistrates’ court to answer for treason charges.

Besigye returned to Nakawa court on Friday for the mention of his case after a long time of silence ever since he was released from Luzira prisons.

The FDC strongman told press outside court that he had made an oath never to return to Nakawa but the state managed to shift his bail reporting from High Court in Kampala.

“I have been reporting here for both bail and routine mention of the treason case,” he said.

Besigye said if the state wants to play like that, he will then decide to refuse reporting for bail too.

Refusing to report for bail will lead to its cancellation, then his arrest and return to Luzira prison on remand.

“I have informed my lawyer that I will not come back to this court over this matter. They can cancel the bail. I have no problem at all.”

He added: “They can cancel bail and take me back to prison if that is their wish but I will not come back to this court for appearance and mention from today.”

Besigye was arrested in down town Kampala and charged in Moroto court with treason on the eve of swearing of President Museveni at the close of the 2016 presidential elections.

He was accused of swearing himself in as the president of Uganda following last year’s presidential elections where he claims to have beaten his competitors including President Museveni by 52 per cent.

Besigye says this was a means by President Museveni to overthrow the will of the people who had voted him and not Museveni.

“My arrest, detention and the eventual charging with treason was simply part of the coup process that was conducted by Museveni,” he said, suggesting that it’s the president who should be on trial.
