Nyajura had earlier told us before arrest that her cloths which she had prepared to put on for today were confiscated by police.

She went however, that she was read to go to parliament and interface with MPs trying to alter the national constitution.

“I want to see that Evelyn Anite who said that they have the magye” she said.


The FDC firebrand attempted to resist arrest, screaming loudly that it was in her right to defend the country’s constitution.

Meanwhile by 10:40; another group of Uganda Young Democrats were making their way toward the Parliamentary Building.
