Former Forum for Democratic Change-FDC party presidential candidate Dr Kizza Besigye has successfully attended the weekly ‘free my vote' campaign prayers initiated in protest of the February 18 presidential results. 

Unlike last week when he disagreed with police over a route, today, Besigye accepted to a route given to him by police to follow from his home in Kasangati to the FDC party headquarters in Najjanankumbi.

From Kasangati, Besigye was driven through Kitetikka-Kyanja-Kisaasi to Bukoto. He was then advised to use Kira join and join Lugogo Bypass through to Jinja road, Mukwano Road to Nsambya and Entebbe road.

The development comes just a day after police summoned Besigye for allegedly disobeying lawful orders from police., Fred Enanga, the police spokesperson said Monday, that the summons are in regards to last Tuesday's incident in which Dr Besigye was intercepted at the Mulago roundabout on his way to the Najjanankumbi.

On the said day, Besigye disregarded police advice to use Yusuf Lule road on his way to Najjanankumbi opting for the route through Wandegeya to the city centre. But Police maintained that his preferred route would jeopardize business in the central business district considering the crowds that accompanied him.

Besigye told party enthusiasts that the campaign they have embarked on is to salvage Ugandans whose rights are being abused by the state and its agents.
