A planned Activists for Change (A4C) rally scheduled for the Katwe Freedom Square was yesterday quashed by police, with Dr Kizza Besigye and several opposition politicians violently snatched off the streets and detained without charge for more than six hours. The peaceful rally was part of activities planned by the A4C to launch the second phase of the pressure groups Walk-to-Work campaign against the rising cost of living, corruption and bad governance. In a statement late last evening, the Uganda Media Centre said police arrested 12 individuals at 3pm in connection with the planned rally and held them at Kiira and Jinja Road police stations. The individuals would remain in custody as police investigations continued. The names of the said individuals were not provided. No tentative date of their release was given. By press time, however, Mr Nandala Mafabi, the Leader of Opposition in Parliament, said all individuals who were arrested had been released on police bond.
