Ugandan opposition leader Kizza Besigye was on Thursday remanded in custody until April 27 after being charged in court with participating in an unlawful assembly, a Reuters witness said.
Besigye was arrested for leading a fourth round of "walk to work" protests earlier on Thursday. He has been released on bail on two previous occasions in the past two weeks after being charged with inciting unrest.
