Unlike his last return when police deployed heavily along Entebbe road and picked Besigye, a four time challenger of President Yoweri Museveni from the plane before driving him to his home in Kasangati, Wakiso District, today’s return had no major incidents.

Former presidential candidate Dr Kizza Besigye has returned from his 12-days trip abroad.

Besigye on October 17 flew out of the country saying he was taking a break from harassment state institutions.

This was after police blocked him from attending court as part of his bail conditions in a case in which he was charged with treason.

Unlike his last return when police deployed heavily along Entebbe road and picked Besigye, a four time challenger of President Yoweri Museveni from the plane before driving him to his home in Kasangati, Wakiso District, today’s return had no major incidents.

Besigye was reportedly first blocked by police on Entebbe road for unknown reasons before being let to proceed.

At Besigye’s home in Kasangati, his supporters have reportedly taken over security warning police to stay out of bounds.

Some were seen holding with placards with inscriptions “No fly zone for police.”

Dr Besigye is said to have used his latest tour of Europe and the United States, to highlight what he says is the deteriorating human rights situation in Uganda, we have been told.

Two days after he left the country, Dr Besigye on October 19, attended a ceremony at the University of Manchester where his wife, Winnie Byanyima, was honoured with a doctorate for her role in advocating for women’s rights.

A day later, Besigye proceeded to Washignton DC, in the United States of America where he had reportedly gone to press for tougher action against Museveni’s government.
