FDC officials have confirmed detectives quizzed the activists on the planning and objectives of walk-to-work campaign which has paralysed the nation.

Top opposition leaders were yesterday arrested for planning to hold an illegal rally at Katwe Grounds.

They were released later in the night without charge.

In a related development, Col. Kizza Besigye has finalized the time table for this weekend and next week’s walk-to-work reloaded campaign.

The political activity resumes tomorrow in Kireka, an explosive town well known for its large number of goons.

Kireka thugs battled a heavily armed UPDF unit during the 2009 Kayunga riots. Lives were lost as battle-hardened goons pelted stones at APCs and engaged soldiers in bloody battles.


Walk to work campaign will on tuesday extend to Kasubi, another volatile town. Then on Wednesday, the protests will rock Kitintale, a Kampala suburb.

Another demonstration will be held in Kitebi on Thursday before the grand rally at Kololo on January 28.

Besigye revealed the time table today during a press conference at Katonga office in Kampala today. The brief was attended by MPs Nabillah Ssempala, Ibrahim Ssemuju Nganda and Moses Kasibante.
