Uganda security agencies surround a royal guard to Charles Wesley Mumbere. The latest unrest started shortly after Uganda's disputed presidential elections in February. Voters in the area overwhelmingly favored Kizza Besigye, who ran against long-ruling President Yoweri Museveni. Museveni was declared the winner, but Besigye rejected the results and his supporters insist he won the overall poll.
