Arrest

Last month Mr. Robert Kyagulanyi saw his charges dropped sending him to tears but was again arrested.

He was to be charged in a civil court but his lawyer who is also a member of parliament appealed to the court to release him so as to receive medical assistance in what he said he was “ beaten” while in custody.

He was however handed over to the Ugandan Police and taken to Gulu where he was to appear before Chief Magistrate Court.

In the same month, opposition leader Kizza Besigye was arrested as he was leaving his house.

Heavy police was present to make sure no demonstration would take place.

In the meantime demonstrations were still going in with Kenya joining in calling for the immediate release of Bobi Wine.
