A group of protesters freely stormed court premises in Uganda’s capital Kampala expressing solidarity with embattled Inspector General of Police (IGP) Kale kayihura.
This is one of the rarest incidents in Uganda’s history of (political) dissent.
Court summoned the IGP and seven other senior officers to answer charges slapped against police by private lawyers in connection with beating of former presidential candidate Col. Dr. Kizza Besigye after being released from Luzira.
Protesters who turned up at Makindye grade one magistrate’s court on Wednesday morning carrying placards turned rowdy and charged at people purported to be in support of the case as police watched. A car belonging to one of the lawyers was vandalized.
