Police on Monday arrested a man with a human head concealed in a polythene bag at Parliament.
The man, whose identity is yet to be established, was intercepted at Parliament’s main gate with the human head that he had reportedly wrapped well with intentions to deliver it somewhere. It was not immediately clear where he was taking it.
Parliament spokesperson Hellen Kaweesa said they are waiting for an official report from police.
Following the incident, police increased deployment at Parliament, with full body and property checks now being conducted.
Parliament of Uganda has in the last six years seen incidences of pigs being dumped there, reportedly in protest of the extravagance of MPs.
Two Ugandan students and policemen were arrested in June 2014 after two pigs, painted yellow, were smuggled past tight parliament security in a protest against political corruption and youth unemployment.
In 2013, anti-corruption activists in neighbouring Kenya drove a truck full of pigs caked in blood to the country’s parliament protesting against a sharp increase in the pay for MPs.
