“How can people access parliament in such a manner without those who were on duty knowing?”

Namaye adds that they have appointed a team of officers headed by CIID Paul Kato to investigate whether the officers had a hand in letting the youths access Parliament.

The animals were painted yellow, the official colour of the ruling NRM party.

Chimp Corp, Susan Nawonga, who was at Parliament on Tuesday, said the University students were identified as Robert Mayanja and Norman Tumuhimbise.

The duo was protesting against the new budget for the financial year 2014/15, saying it does not provide ways of uplifting the economic status of the youth.

“We won’t shut up about youth desertion, youth exploitation, youth manipulation and don’t lead us into temptation,” charged Tumuhimbise.

The group identified itself as the “Jobless Brotherhood.”

Mayanja and Tumuhimbise are currently being interrogated by detectives at the Central Police Station.
