Besigye is intending to join 4GC activists who are after joining city traders in their effort to protest the  Pre-import Verification of Conformity to Standards programme (PVoC) fees.

4GC’s head Mathias Mpuuga says the campaign is aimed  countering the  NRM “dictatorship” and showing solidarity with Kampala traders who are on strike.

The traders on Tuesday closed their shops in protest against a new government programme requiring pre-shipment inspection of imported goods in the countries of origin before they enter into the Ugandan market.    The traders argue that the fees will get them out of business .
