Besigye to be flown back To Kampala says Prisons boss

By Patricia Osman
Dr Kizza Besigye the FDC former presidential candidate has been flown in back to Kampala today from Moroto District where he was incarcerated since last week.
According to the prisons spokesperson Fred Baine Mayanja the transfer follows a formal request from Besigye’s doctors. Baine says Besigye’s Doctor wrote to the Commissioner General of prisons that his patient be brought closer to him for easy and closer management.
However there are contradicting reports that Besigye transfer was only prompted following a protest by angry locals demanding for the release of the FDC strongman and former party presidential flag bearer.
 This morning police reportedly fired teargas and live ammunition at the hundreds of angry protesters in Moroto. Besigye was remanded by the Moroto Chief Magistrates Court on Friday last week  after being charged with treason, following the appearance of a video footage of him being sworn in as President elect.
Besigye was airlifted to Moroto following his arrest on Wednesday after he beat police security and turned up in Kampala a day before the official swearing in of President Yoweri  Museveni.

What is Besigye’s view on JPAM?

He will probably win the head of The Democratic Alliance position as well. So what is next? Will he boycott elections if electoral reforms are not made? How does he handle those who opposed his position?

What is his response to Amanya Mushega’s open letter to him?

What is his opinion on the JPAM factor? Isn’t Amama stealing all the opposition supporters?
