Leaders of Uganda’s FDC Party Surrounded by Security Forces

Uganda’s main opposition Forum for Democratic Change party said one of its senior officials was missing and its leaders were surrounded by security forces, three days before President Yoweri Museveni is sworn into office.

Confining the leaders to their homes is meant to curtail their freedoms as Museveni takes his oath on Thursday, Wafula Oguttu, the leader of the opposition in parliament and a senior member of the party, said on his Facebook account. Ingrid Turinawe, the party’s head of mobilization, was “abducted last night,” he said.

“I think they want all of us put out of circulation as part of their swearing in preparations,” he said.
