Former presidential candidate Dr Kizza Besigye has said that the government planned to arrest him for the killing of Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi (better known as Bobi Wine) in the aftermath of the August 2018 Arua by-election chaos.
Besigye made the claim during a presser at Katonga
Road on Thursday, October 04, 2018.
Besigye made the claim while explaining that opposition leaders had got wind of a government plot to kill political opponets and pin the killings on the opposition.
Besigye claimed that the shooting of Bobi Wine’s driver Yasin Kawuma in Arua was actually an attempted assassination on the Kyadondo East legislator.
Besigye said that the killing of Kawuma was part of a government plot to convince the public that members of the opposition were at loggerheads and taken to killing those they fear threaten their own popularity.
Besigye said the government plot is a reaction to President Yoweri Museveni realising that his government had lost popular mandate after the 2016 general elections. Besigye went ahead to reiterate his belief that he was the rightful winner of that election and his party the FDC have evidence to back this up.
