Police from Kabwohe police station on Monday 30, found a tougher time to calm the situation in Kabwohe town as citizens were demonstrating against Elioda’s victory accusing him of rigging votes.
Drama begun when Police blocked all Bodaboda riders who had attended Virginia’s consultation gathering at Sheema hall play ground in Kabwohe and refused them to go back to town where they work from and impounded some motorcycles which annoyed other traders who started throwing stones to the police.
When asked whether her gathering was illegally conducted, former FDC candidate Virginia Plan Mugyenyi told mknewslink.com that she asked the permission from the police.
According to the eye witness who preferred anonynimity, what confused people was that even other Bodaboda men who didn’t attend the gathering for them they were allowed to pass and police had started beating whoever they find on their ways.
Meanwhile Bukedde news reporter Mr Ddamba Wisely was also arrested by Hon Elioda’s workers and taken to ICOBI offices on un known matters however when other journalists tried to follow him, they were chased in a critical way by ICOBI employees.
Ddamba was beaten by Mr Amanya Jordan who worked on radio west and director BFM Radio now a sub county chief Rugarama sub county as the former tried to capture what was taking place at Kibutamo polling station at night.
ICOBI is a non governmental organisation founded by Hon Elioda Tumwesigye, therefore it is alleged that Ddamba’s arrest are connected with the incidence that took place about him and Jordan since many have relied on it asking themselves many questions why Jordan was stopping him from capturing what was taking place.
