The former Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party President, Dr. Kizza Besigye on Sunday beat security to campaign in Soroti city.

Besigye had earlier in the day escaped arrest at Igar fuel station in Jinja City while on his way to Sorot.

The FDC team that was waiting for Besigye in Soroti told the anxious residents in Opiyai that Dr. Besigye had been blocked by security personnel.

But to everyone’s surprise, Dr. Besigye emerged at the FDC’s last rally in Kichinjaji ward.

Besigye is expected to campaign for Moses Attan Okia, the FDC party candidate in the next two days of the campaigns that will end on Tuesday.

President Yoweri Museveni is also expected in Soroti on Monday to campaign for Herbert Edmund Ariko, the NRM party candidate.

The Soroti East polls are scheduled for July 28, 2022. Three candidates were nominated by the electoral commission to contest for the seat that fell vacant after the nullification of Attan’s election by the Court of Appeal.
