Police spokesperson, Fred Enanga, told a news conference in Kampala on Monday that Besigye was arrested outside his residence in Kasangati
Dr. Kizza Besigye, the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) flag bearer in the just concluded elections is held at Naggalama Police station.
Police spokesperson, Fred Enanga, told a news conference in Kampala on Monday that Besigye was arrested outside his residence in Kasangati in Wakiso district as he attempted to leave for the city to pick declaration of results forms from the Electoral Commission (EC).
Besigye wants to compare entries on the EC's declaration of results forms with records from his polling agents.
FDC, the biggest Opposition party claims the February 18 election was massively rigged in favour of the National Resistance Movement and incumbent president Yoweri Museveni.
On the polling day, Besigye was arrested and driven to his home in Kasangati in a police vehicle after he stormed a place in Naguru, a Kampala suburb, where he claimed part of the election rigging was taking place.
Besigye, who was briefly held twice two days to the polling day, was arrested for the fourth time in a week on Friday at the FDC party headquarters in Kampala where he and party stalwarts had set up an independent tally centre.
Without disclosing when Besigye will be freed from Naggalama Police Station, Enanga said FDC's four-time presidential candidate's movements would continue to be monitored closely by the police.
"We have intelligence that he (Besigye) is planning violence and he has goons who were planning to destroy property in the city," he added.
