People cheered as the former president of the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) arrived in the city center, paralyzing business.

He arrived at the city center with megaphones affixed on his automobile, urging people to “wake up and resist the soaring commodity prices and the ridiculous succession birthday,” as he put it.

“We must fight this war and ensure that the high-price situation is addressed,” Dr. Besigye cried from his automobile as the crowd applauded him.

When police encircled his car and pulled him out, his quest was stopped short.
