POLICE in Nabisaalu, Makindye Division, Kampala Capital City has arrested His Worship Bosco Lusagala, Makindye Division Deputy Mayor whon is a People Power top cordinator, over distribution of essential goods to his hungry electorates.
We have talked to His Worship Mayor Haji Ali Kasirye Nganda Mulyannyama over the matter.
Case was registered on SD ref. 23/4/05/2020.
Hon. Lusagala a reknown Democratic party opposition youth leader was in the company of Jackline Nakajubi and Tony Muhumuza, both coordinators of opposition People Power Movement when he was allegedly caught red-handed by Police giving handouts to residents of Nabisaalu village goodies comprising sugar, posho,beans and soap.
This act is in contravention of presidential directive to politicians distributing food to groups of people since through such concentrations, Coronavirus can easily spread.
President Museveni directed police that those arrested, must be charged with attempted murder!
Since, a number of People Power leaders have been arrested.
They include Mityana Municipality MP Francis Butebi Zaake now bedridden at St. Francis Hospital Lubaga after about 12 days of detention.
Another one, Hon. Francis Muganga, Iganga district People Power leader was yesterday Thursday released on Court bail after he was arrested on allegations of distributing food to hundreds of hungry people.
Hon. Lusagala’s relatives have expressed great concern for his life since by press time, they had not accessed him.
“After getting Hon. Zaake’s story about how he was tortured in the detention and seeing shocking photos, we are worried, Hon. Lusagala might be going through the same situation.” Said Moses Kalega, a family member.
Just like it was in Iganga when Mugagga was arrested, in Makindye, residents have applauded Lusagala’s generosity in this dire situation by coming up to assist the vulnerable persons in the area and standing up with them.
The police has however continued to caution politicians and community at large against violation of presidential directives warning that any one caught, will be arrested and prosecuted.
