Drama roar in Kasangati as police block Rtd. Col. Dr. Kifefe Kizza-Besigye from proceeding to the capital Kampala in fear of him leading protests

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that drama has roared in Kasangati as police block Rtd. Col. Dr. Kifefe Kizza-Besigye from proceeding to the capital Kampala in fear of him leading protests. (Read More Here).

Kifefe Kizza-Besigye says: "" Today, our “wake up call” campaign camped in Kasangati! We weren’t able to reach the centre on the first day; we arrived today but were blocked there all day.
Police vandalised our megaphone and spent the day dispersing people.
I am convinced Kasangati (Bengazi) is reawakened!

"Today’s commanders included PFT Vice Chairman, Mr Sam Lubega Mukaaku & former Kasangati Mayor, Mr Tonny Ssempeebwa. 

"Many Makerere University students who’d come to visit me at home joined the campaign!
We also distributed Red Cards to Bengazi residents.
EeBengaziOyee!" 

Despite withdrawing from Besigye’s home, the police have deployed heavily in Kasangati town. Derick Fredric Namakajo, the legal advisor for the Justice Forum and pressure group People's Front for Transition, says that they will renew their protests against the high commodity prices. He says that it is their constitutional mandate to hold those in government accountable and demonstrate their desertification.

Besigye on Tuesday said that he met members of his pressure group and they resolved to intensify and widen the campaign.

"The wakeup call should be spread quickly to all parts of the country. It's not a partisan call but one to all oppressed people affected by failure to thrive crisis,” he noted.

Besigye and his pressure group believe that their drive will awaken the citizens and protest the government’s failure to act on high commodity prices. 

Additionally, Besigye suggested that government should reclaim the funds swindled by corrupt officials so that they can be used to enhance the salaries of civil servants and give relief to schools, among others.      

Since the start of the year, prices of essential household commodities have been soaring with many people struggling to make ends meet. Although several people have been calling the government to make some intervention their calls are falling on deaf ears.  

Government officials have attributed the increase in prices to the long-term effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and the raging war in Ukraine.
