The opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party has announced that as it awaits a police report, it has contracted private investigators to look into the breaking in at its offices at Najjanankumbi last week, in which computers and other significant documents were stolen.
On Tuesday 19th November 2019, the opposition party offices in Kampala and the district branch in Kasese district were broken into by unknown persons who stole computers.
Police in response arrested the FDC office security guard after a sniffer dog from the crime scene wound up at his renting facility which made him the prime suspect.
“As we wait for the police report, the party has contracted private investigators to do the same and this will enable us compare our report with that of police to inform the management of the next course of action,” said FDC deputy spokesman John Kikonyogo
FDC is not the only institution to face break-ins lately. Others that have suffered the same include Human Rights Network for Journalists (HRNJ), the Observer newspaper, Inter Religious Council of Uganda (IRCU), Legal and Service Providers Network (LASPNET), Citizens Coalition for Independent Media among others.
