Makerere Woman Councillor and Forum for Democratic Change [FDC] preacher, Doreen Nyanjura, Saturday camped at Kabale Police Station until her detained colleagues were set free.

At the close of the week, police arrested former presidential candidate, Dr Kizza Besigye, FDC mobilisation secretary, Ingrid Turinawe and Party presidential candidate, Hon Patrick Oboi Amuriat along Kabale-Kisoro road.

They are still in detention at Naggalama police station in Mukono district.

Besigye’s driver, Kato Fred, FDC youth Brian Atuheire Batenda, Ronald Muhinda and Mastiko Baker who were arrested following the clashes in Rukungiri district have also been in detention.

Nyanjura believes all these people are innocent as well the six shot supporters who are hospital in Nyakibale. “It is President Museveni who should be in prison or hospital.”

“Thankfully, we over powered him, people in Rukungiri had already started gathering, I love the solidarity of Rukungiri people!”

Roland Mugume Kaginda, the FDC National vice chairperson incharge of Western region who also doubles as the Rukungiri Municipality MP, Nicholas Atuheire, FDC Kabale District chairperson Mrs Lydia Turyahumura, Rukungiri District chairperson Mrs Virginia Kyarugahe.
