    Dr Kizza Besigye will be arrested if he declares his own set of results for next year’s presidential election, President Museveni warned yesterday.

    The President also described Dr Kizza Besigye, who is running against him in a third consecutive race, as a “comedian” on account of his defiant promise to announce his version of results. “It is just comedy; no one should take him serious,” Mr Museveni said at a press conference in Jinja where he was ending his campaigns in Busoga sub-region.

    “Uganda is not Ivory Coast, It is not Kenya. Don’t expect what is happening or happened in these countries to happen here. Uganda is a country led by people who have fought wars. You can’t play that game here. He may have his computers but the only institution charged with announcing electoral results is the national Electoral Commission.” “Nobody can announce results here, not even me. That will be a short cut to Luzira for any candidate who does that.”

    Ivory Coast, which is on the brink of repeat civil war after a December 6 election held in the hope of uniting the country divided since disputed elections in 2002, finds itself again facing a similar situation. The incumbent, Laurent Gbagbo, is clinging onto power even when the national electoral body has announced that he was defeated by Alassane Ouattara
