Kiiza Besigye, President of the Forum for Democratic Change has once again been arrested.
 
Besigye was arrested this morning at around 7:50am, shortly after he kicked off a fresh attempt at a “walk to work” protest, against the rising food and fuel prices.
 
He was rounded up at Gayaza round about, popularly known as Kubiri with a huge procession. Police fired tear gas and live bullets to disperse the crowds.
 
Besigye was then rounded up, bundled up onto a police pick up truck and taken to Wandegeya Police station.
 
This is the fourth time within a period of 16 days that Besigye is being arrested.
 
Besigye was arrested on Monday and charged with inciting violence, as a third day of street demonstrations in Kampala ended in shrouds of tear gas and rubber bullets.
