Nakaseke South Member of Parliament Paulson Ssemakula Lutamaguzi has Thursday been charged and remanded to Wanyato government prison, The Tower Post

The opposition strongman was picked up by Police on Wednesday August 26th at Wakasanke village along Matugga-Ssemuto road as he planned to hold a rally.

He has been charged with doing an act likely to spread Covid-19.

The situation comes amid public anger over a number of NRM politicians who have previously held processions but were ignored by Police

Recently, Health Minister Jane Ruth Aceng appeared in a video holding a procession but she was defended by President Museveni.

Minister for Investment Evelyne Anite was the second NRM politician to hold a procession against Covid 19 guidelines but also went untouched

A number of other NRM leaning politicians have done acts contrary to Museveni’s directives but have been protected by the Police.

The same however, has not been extended to opposition politicians as these have been brutally arrested and allegedly tortured.

Lutamaguzi is set to appear again in court on Thursday September 3rd.

Police Admits to Shielding Off Bobi Wine’s Residence, Controlling Who Gets Access to Him

Published

By


Police has come out to clarify on Bobi Wine’s claims that he is being held under house arrest at his home in Magere, Wakiso, Central Uganda.

Bobi Wine who came second in the recently concluded Presidential election claimed via his social media that he was being kept at his house and that none of his colleagues are being allowed access to him.

“It’s now four days since the military surrounded our home and placed my wife and I under house arrest. We have run out of food supplies and when my wife tried to pick food from the garden yesterday, she was blocked and assaulted by the soldiers staged in our compound,” Bobi Wine said through his Twitter Account handlers

“Everyone, including media and my party officials are restricted from accessing me. Francis Zaake [Mityana Municipality MP] was arrested outside my gate as he made his way to my house. He was badly beaten by soldiers. He is now in Rubaga hospital,” he added.

But Police spokesperson Fred Enanga trashed all the claims saying that the former Presidential Candidate is being restrained to stop him from holding his planned riots in town.

Enanga admitted that the security forces are deployed heavily at Bobi Wine’s house after receiving intelligence that he, together with his supporters were mobilizing people to come to the Kampala City centre and stage riots.

Enanga further revealed that the rioters were being organized in NUP strongholds including Mityana, Jinja, Luwero, Kasese and Mbale.
