“The Police on Thursday, sick http://currencymeter.com/wp-admin/includes/post.php 16th July, viagra 60mg http://conceive.ca/wp-content/cache/wp-cache-5263ebbeab714a2ff3f25e70883750ca.php 2015, conducted an operation in Katanga, Wandegeya, and arrested a youth activist, Kaggwa Vincent, under a pre-emptive arrangement to curtail him from acts allegedly intent on disrupting peace during the IDD celebrations on Friday, 17th July, 2015,” said Enanga in an elaborate press statement issued Monday night.

“The youth group had planned to distribute materials with electoral significance to Muslims participating in the IDD prayers at selected Mosques and other Muslim worship centers within Kampala,” added Enanga.

“It is in the interest of preserving peace and safety, and because the threat of the breach was imminent, the Police, objectively and with reasonable cause arrested and detained him at the Central Police Station in Kampala, to stop and or prevent breach of peace during the IDD prayers.”


Kaggwa has since denied the accusations.

“According to the bond, I was being charged with planning to cause chaos during Eid celebrations which according to me is not right. How could I do that to my Muslim brothers and sisters?” he wondered after being released from detention at Central Police Station, Kampala.

“May be they had other motives for arresting me but there was no way I was going to cause mayhem and chaos on Eid day,” he added.

Kaggwa’s wife, Charlotte Kemigisha confirmed that indeed detectives retrieved what police described as unauthorised electoral materials from their residence in Katanga, a slum near Makerere University.

“A few minutes after entering the house, police claimed that they wanted Mbabazi T-shirts and posters which they found in the house, collected them before ordering him to sign a document acknowledging the presence of the said materials and went way with him to CPS,” Kemigisha told journalists.

Enanga said Kaggwa’s NRM Poor Youth Group had not sought the permission from the respective Imams to organize activities at the Mosques.

“I want to confirm to the public, that the suspect has this morning been released from Police custody, after establishing that the risk from their intent to disrupt prayers and also attack our Police Post in Kalerwe was sufficiently removed.”
