Engineer Dr. Badru Kiggundu, the Electoral Commission chairman, says Dr. Kizza Besigye, the Forum for Democratic Change-FDC party presidential candidate is to blame for his arrest this afternoon.

 

Besigye was picked up together with General Mugisha Muntu, the FDC party presidential candidate from their party headquarters in Najjanankumbi as they were preparing to release results from their tally.

 

Responding to Besigye's arrest this afternoon, Dr. Badru Kiggundu, the EC chairperson, said the presidential candidate was responsible for his actions.

Cue Out:…the law is supreme//

In an earlier, press conference at the national tally center in Namboole, Kiggundu warned opposition parties and media houses to desist from declaring presidential results other than those announced by the Commission.

The latest results from EC indicate that NRM candidate, Yoweri Museveni is leading with 62.82 percent followed by Besigye with 32.72 percent. However, FDC has disputed the poll results, saying their candidate is ahead of Museveni based on the results of 673 out of the 28,010 polling stations across the country. 

The FDC results published by party spokesperson Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda on social media platforms, puts Besigye and Museveni at 50 and 46 percent respectively.
