Press Relese: Worrying Trends of Journalists Targeted for Covering Political Campaigns in Uganda (26.02.2016)
I write what I like.
Today there been FDC-Supporters who have been in car-accidents. But that is not the worst. It is sad to see all the car accidents that are happening in Uganda, because of the poor roads and security on it.
In Arua districts and sub-counties one of the two days they are on the campaign trail there. The Police have been involved and taken charge in the area. Just as they have done with the Go-Forward Presidential Candidate Amama Mbabazi in recent days.
Even NTV Senior Journalist Francis Jingo and Ronald Galiwango we’re manhandled by the Police and because he and for the reason of wanting to visit the local referral hospital, but was not allowed therefore the hard treatment from the local police force.
The DPC Jonathan Musinguzi made a decision and denied the FDC Campaign trail to visit the Rhino Camp Health Care. This is the place where the Besigye Convoy we’re attacked. Even the FDC MP Flag-Bearer for Madi North with registered number UAX 381L we’re injured in the battalion. It was the DPC and the Police blocked the entrance for everybody!
Message from Dr. Kizza Besigye:
“A lot of interferences by Police couldn’t stop the people of Madi and Terego from taking part in our campaigns today. Thanks to the FDC leadership and people for the good work at all our 7 rallies. Tomorrow we continue with other parts of Arua and our main rally. Wesige Besigye”.
That’s enough of the madness from the Police on the matters of FDC today! Peace!
