The planned rallies by the former Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Presidential Candidate Dr Kizza Besigye to sensitise Isingiro residents on land matters have flopped.

The rallies failed to take place after police intercepted Besigye at a check point along Ruborogota-Kitwe road on his way to Kajaho trading center in Kikagate Sub County where he was expected to address the first rally under his “My Land, My Life” campaign.

Besigye was expected to address four other rallies at different venues in the district.

After intercepting Besigye, Police diverted him to Kikagate in Kitwe Sub County in Ntungamo district leading him into Mbarara district.

Police led by the Wamala Region Police Commander, Robert Walugembe escorted the former FDC leader to his home in Kasangati in Wakiso district near Kampala.

Samson Kasasira, the Rwizi Regional Police Spokesperson told UBC that they decided to escort Besigye when he defied orders not to proceed to Isingiro district.
