The opposition leader said he would not be intimidated by the security forces who are brutalizing opposition supporters and him.

“The time to kick out this government is now not 2016. I am tired of telling people that government is rotting away due to corruption,” Besigye roared as hundreds of his supporters cheered him on.

“Ugandans should unite now and denounce Museveni, the time is now or never. We must use all our power to bring down this government. Do not allow being intimidated,” Besigye said.

The FDC stalwart last month told students at Makerere 2012 would be a year of bloodshed and liberation.

“Prepare to sacrifice your lives to liberate the country. Museveni must go in 2012. We cannot have 2016 before we resolve 2011,” Besigye noted.

The statements come on the backdrop of intensified walk-to-work riots that have paralyzed Kampala city.

Police boss Lt. Gen. Kale Kayihura early this week said the force will continue to use all resources available to protect civilians from walk-to-work chaos.


Besigye told a mammoth crowd in Kireka that police had brutally arrested them.

He said the commandoes who picked him from the Katonga office are drug abusers. “They are not professional officers. That is a Bangi group,” he revealed.

Police spokesperson Asuman Nsubuga denied the reports, saying it’s Besigye’s concoction.

There was drama when police blocked Besigye at Spear Motors in Nakawa and instructed him to use Ntinda stretcher.

Besigye stuck to his guns thus ordering his driver not to divert from the Jinja road.

FDC insiders say Kayihura allowed Besigye to hold the rally on condition that it would be peaceful.

MP Betty Nambooze said Uganda can no longer wait to change status quo in 2016. “Ugandans must rise up now. We are tired of this regime,” she said.

In attendance were Medard Lubega, Ibrahim Ssemuju Nganda, Mathias Mpuuga and Ingrid Turinawe.

Besigye convoy was tightly guarded by police from Kireka to his Kasangati residence.
