Police have spoken out on circumstances under which Isaac Kugonza, page side effects http://cinemalogue.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/class.jetpack-ixr-client.php 28, erectile stuff http://ciencialili.org/libraries/gantry/features/morearticles.php  a journalist working with Delta TV sustained injuries during front line coverage of a rowdy protest at the home of impeached Kampala Mayor, medical http://class-actions.us/wp-content/plugins/ditty-news-ticker/classes/class-mtphr-dnt-tick.php Erias Lukwago, at Lungujja, a Kampala City suburb.

Police publicist Fred Enanga said the journalist was taking photos and videos under the security cover of the police, before he was “caught up and injured by a stone hurled at the police by the rowdy protesters.”

Enanga said Kugonza took “injuries to the right side of head, where he suffered a wound to the ear and a swollen eye,” adding, “The Police immediately rescued and rushed him to Mulago National Referral Hospital, where he is being hospitalized.”

Earlier, reports indicated that Kugonza was injured by a rubber bullet, sparking fury from the 4th Estate.

Police say the victim was subjected to a CT scan whereby preliminary examination shows that he is out of danger ahead of the next evaluation today Tuesday.

The law enforcement body fought off Lukwago supporters as he was being arrested yesterday.

Lukwago intended to force his way to the Electoral Commission for his nomination as Kampala Mayor aspirant.

The Commission had earlier announced that the nomination of Mayoral candidates had been deferred to another date as it awaited guidelines from the Kampala Affairs Minister, Frank Tumwebaze.

More casualties

Meanwhile another female victim, Molly Nyamwiza, 21, is also being hospitalized, after sustaining a serious fracture to the leg.

She was knocked down by a boda boda rider, who was attempting to escape from the ugly scenes at Lukwago’s residence.

She had visited her elder sister at Nyanama Zone before being injured while proceeding to Kampala, on her way back to Hoima.

Lukwago and Allan Sewanyana, a Councillor at Makindye Division, were briefly detained at Nagalama Police Station as police investigated charges of incitement to violence, assault and malicious damage levied against them.

Enanga said the confrontation between police and protesters could have been avoided if Lukwago had observed the instructions from the electoral body that deferred nominations to a later date.

“The police remain committed to enforcing law and order, without fear or favor, in respect of all people and calls upon each and every one of us to uphold the law for the good of our land,” said Enanga.
