Opposition figure Kizza Besigye has finally broken the security siege at his home in Kasangati and headed to Kampala city to lead the anti-corruption walk.

While President Museveni leads the walk from Kololo airstrip, Besigye too will lead a parallel march from Katonga Road based People’s Government offices to Constitutional Square.

However, police moved very early Wednesday morning and besieged his home to prevent him from leaving.

His aide Ronald Muhinda said joint security forces were heavily deployed at his home in Kasangati and offices along Katonga road.

At around 9:30am, Besigye managed to beat security at his home and headed to town.  

“Kizza Besigye left his besieged residence and left Police looking Aganzi. He is going to lead Anti-Corruption Match in town,” Muhinda confirmed.

He added: “The corrupt Museveni and group will not walk alone to walk alone.”

Blocked again

At Mpererwe, police intercepted and blocked Besigye from proceeding to town.

Traffic along Gayaza road was diverted towards Kyanja while those from Kalerwe to Gayaza were ordered to use the route through Lusanja.

“Once people are corrupt, those they steal from start suffering, when they come out to show their displeasure, those who are corrupt fight them (the people) viciously,” Muhinda commented.

“Mbu [that] only Museveni Exhibit 1510 and his corrupt henchmen should protest against their corruption.”

People walk to work after several roads were sealed off during President Museveni’s anti-corruption march in Kampala on Wednesday morning.
