FDC Wants Officer Who Brutalized Besigye Sacked

The Opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party has called for the immediate descplining and sacking of the police officer who brutally arrested former presidential candidate Dr. Kiiza Besigye.

Speaking during the press conference at the party head quarters, the party spokes person Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda insists that they have identified all the police officers that sprayed their founding officer with dangerous chemicals and the party would not sit back.


Besigye brutality occurred last week as he tried to address the party supporters and officials at Namboole stadium. On the same date, police smashed the windscreen of Dr Besigye’s car, sprayed chemicals inside before pulling him out.

It should be noted that trouble started after security personnel blocked an FDC party conference that had been scheduled at Namboole.


The FDC members decided to march in a procession from the stadium to their party headquarters in Najjanankumbi but were intercepted by police who fired teargas and water cannons to disperse the procession on Kampala-Jinja highway. Dr Besigye was roughed up, plucked out of his vehicle and detained at Nagalama Police Station until late in the night.
