Press Release: UPF comments on their actions this weekend (12.10.2015)
On Saturday 10/10/2025 at about 1130hrs at Kanyalyeru along Masaka-Mbarara road, the FDC convey proceeding to Rukungiri District for campaigns was stopped. One Naigaga Fatuma undressed herself, falsely claimed that security undressed her later and insulted the Police. She was arrested and later released with the rest of her colleagues and were instructed to go back to Kampala. Security has noted that some of these people are hired goons who are ready to undress or do anything to create an impression that they are being harassed by security personnel.
Of recent, several politicians especially the opposition, have adopted nudity of adult women of all ages as a form of political and protest action. In Uganda, the FDC as a party are using it as a statement to give life to their political ambitions over sympathetic voters.
Although the naked body has been used as an instrument of protest or tool of objection by many different groups of activists, it is a provocative technique where some activist present themselves in a deliberately provocative way in order to shock the viewer and draw awareness to their political and social protest.
As you must all be aware, in our country barring one’s body in public not only remains a taboo but is also perceived as a disturbance of proper public order. It is in addition exploitative and an insult to women and their valves, especially where they are hired to indecently expose their nakedness.
We want to appeal to the public especially young women to guard against such acts of criminality and further caution the media from displaying such brazenly disturbing photos and video footages.
In the most recent incident, of a female political activist indecently exposing her nakedness, is a subject of investigation who will be charged in due course.

You can’t be serious? What have you been smoking in your pipe? (Certainly not Tobacco) Get real, CP Fred Enanga! Your proud force – used bad methods and used force aganst a political party. Be real! Grow up! This is some shallow nonsense that nobody deserves the actions that happen this weekend. It was caught on tape and the pictures is telling the tale for itself. You can easilly find it on Social Media. Your acting foolish and vile. And the world has seen it now. You can lie for you boss and your cronies. But we the rest can see through it. Step your game up and act with real policing for a change. You want appeal to us and getting us to stop showing the madness you have given the public? Get serious. Digital age is attacking you and your lies. And the footage is showing it so strongly. What you should instead of dropping this utter nonsense. Your people was doing it! Actual teach your police force some manners and also if Uganda has a multi-party democracy! Then the Police should give space to FDC to have public rallies without crashing them with police, tear-gas and crashing their cars on the roads form Kampala towards Rukungiri. Maybe the UPF should look into that?
And if you wonder! I am furious at this BS! Peace.
