Former Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) leader, Dr Kizza Besigye and Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago have been detained by police.
Mr Lukwago was arrested by police on Thursday morning in Nsambya, a Kampala suburb and driven to unknown destination while Mr Besigye was towed in his car to Jinja road police station where he is being detained.
This was after police led by Kampala South Regional Police Commander, Sirajje Bakaleke blocked a group of opposition politicians from accessing Nsamya Sharing Hall.
According to Mr Bakaleke, the meeting was illegal because police was not notified about it.
" When we asked them for the letter ( approving the meeting) they did not have it. Both Besigye and Lukwago will be released and taken to their homes," Mr Bakaleke added.
Mr Besigye and Mr Lukwago are some of the opposition figures who had turned up at Nsambya sharing hall to hold further discussions on the electoral reforms.
