High Court judge Justice Wilson Musene Musalu granted Besigye bail

Opposition leaders in Teso have welcomed the news of the High Court in Kampala granting former Presidential candidate Dr. Kizza Besigye bail.

Besigye has been on remand at Luzira Prison on charges of treason for the last two months.

The Soroti woman MP Angelina Osegge hailed the court for exercising its duties according to the law.

This morning the High Court judge Justice Wilson Musene Musalu explained that bail is representative of the notion that an accused person is innocent until proven guilty.

It's against that background that he granted the four time presidential candidate bail.

The FDC chairman Soroti John Enomu said they are happy with the court's decision to grant Besigye bail because he is a law abiding citizen.

This is the second time Besigye has been charged with treason.
