Uganda Opposition Leader Under ‘Preventive Arrest,’ Monitor Says

March 22 (Bloomberg) -- Uganda’s main opposition leader, Kizza Besigye, is under “preventive arrest” at his home after police charged him for participating in a demonstration in which a policeman died, the Daily Monitor reported.

Besigye’s confinement is aimed at preventing him from taking part in public demonstrations, the Kampala-based newspaper reported, without citing anyone.

A policeman died after being hit by a stone when Besigye’s supporters threw objects at the police in the capital, the newspaper said. Clashes erupted after security forces blocked their procession for more than 40 minutes, it said.
