Uganda’s opposition leader Kizza Besigye has been charged with treason, the country’s Daily Monitor newspaper is reporting.

He was arrested ahead of President Yoweri Museveni’s inauguration yesterday for a controversial fifth term in office.

The Forum for Democratic Change leader denounced Mr Museveni’s victory in February’s election as a “sham” and held his own mock swearing-in ceremony on Wednesday.

His wife told the BBC yesterday that she had no idea where the authorities had taken him after his arrest and she had heard a rumour that he’d been flown to the north-east of the country.

The Daily Monitor says that he is indeed in the north-eastern Karamoja region, remanded in custody at the Moroto government prison until 25 May for a court appearance.
