Members of the Uganda Young Democrats (UYD), a youth wing of the Democratic Party have threatened to sue police for violating their rights to demonstrate.
The suit stems from an incident on Thursday in which a group of UYD demonstrators were intercepted by plain clothed gangs and beaten up as they attempted to march into the city.
The Uganda Young Democrats (UYD), planned a protest march through city to highlight the plight of slum dwellers and the less privileged in Kampala.
The protestors attempted to march into town from Katwe, but were blocked as they tried to access the city through Namirembe Road. A group of plain-clothed security men who had CHOGM security cards confronted the demonstrators and in the ensuing scuffle, the Secretary General of the Uganda Young Democrats, Samuel Muyizi, was stabbed in the face.
Muyizi was rushed and admitted at Mulago hospital. A diagnosis carried out by Dr Mayambala Kiwanuka of Mengo Hospital, shows Muyizi's eye nerves were badly injured. The upper part of his left eye was stitched on Thursday night and he is currently under going treatment for his damaged nerves.
Speaking from his bed at Mulago Hospital, Muyizi said that he intends to sue police for the Thursday incident. He blames police for looking on as the gangs descended on the UYD members and beat them up. He also plans to file a complaint with the Human rights commission.
// Cue in: iyou would see#.
Cue out: .. poor conditionsi//
Simeon Nsubuga, the police spokesperson however says that police is not responsible for Thursday's attack on the UYD. He says that preliminary investigations into the incident show that the UYD were attacked by some disgruntled members of the Democratic Party.
// Cue in: ithese people#.
Cue out: #.action against themi//
Nsubuga also blames the UYD for defying police orders not to hold processions in areas which were not gazetted by the police.
Meanwhile the DP president general who was part of the procession has condemned the attack describing it as an act of hooliganism. He says police had no right to block a peaceful procession.
