Opposition leader accused of treason

Opposition leader Kizza Besigye has been charged with treason and jailed in a remote north-eastern area, judiciary spokesman Solomon Muyita said at the weekend.
The charges stem from Mr Besigye’s attacks on the legitimacy of President Yoweri Museveni, who won a disputed election in February.
He was Mr Museveni’s doctor during the guerilla war that brought him to power in 1986, then held government posts before breaking ranks in 1999.
