Addressing journalists, later, Mayanja blamed the Police brutality on the NRM government that “doesn’t wish to see change in the Country” and that all they do is torture the innocent citizens.

He also attributed the incident to the unprofessionalism in the Forces, “that is why they ignorantly torture, brutalize and oppress other political parties.”

“I can’t believe that up to now we still have unprofessional personnel purporting to be law and order keepers. Where did I go wrong in unveiling my office? We have seen this happen in NRM all those years and such events are not interfered with,” Chameleone lamented.
