The duo and others still at large are accused of holding an unlawful society in July this year at Katonga Road in Kampala.

They had met as members for the banned “For God and my country and activists for change groups”.

Responding to the turn of events, the Lord Mayor warned that “they may be forced not to appear before court if there is continued tossing around and wastage of their time”.

As such, if tomorrow turns out to be like today and nothing fruitful is achieved, the Lord Mayor and the Retired Colonel will take another course of action.


When Besigye, clad in a light blue linen shirt and Lukwago donned in a brown suit appeared before magistrate, Julius Borore, they were informed that the state was not ready with an answer for their application against their illegal detention.

The duo had asked court to dismiss the charges against them arguing that it was illegal to be detained for more than 48 hours when they were arrested last month and taken to Naggalama police station.

Addressing journalists after the court’s decision to adjourn the case, Besigye said, “This is continued political persecution and violation of our rights by this government. They requested for more time to be ready but they have again adjourned the case which shows continuation of wastage of our time.”
