Ugandan opposition leader Kizza Besigye has been granted bail following his arrest on 14 June.
The 66 year old was detained as he urged his supporters in the capital, Kampala, to protest against the high cost of living.
It happened a few hours before the country’s president presided over the reading of the budget.
He and activist Samuel Lubega were both charged with inciting violence. They must return to court on 29 July for the next hearing in their case.
Dr Besigye launched the People’s Front for Transition – a coalition of political parties and activist groups – last year, several months after President Yoweri Museveni won a sixth term in office.
