Police accused the activists of inciting violence through distribution of leaflets at Makerere University. They were detained at Wandegeya Police Station.

“The government is just proving that it is on the side of those who steal government money,” said Kakande.

He said DP stands in solidarity with activist groups “seeking to restore sanity” in the country, and promised to mobilize other groups to join the “Black Monday” activists.

Kakande also commented on government’s decision to hand over the contract of printing national Identity Cards to the Army saying this was another move “aimed at swindling tax payers’ money.”

He said government should account for the money that was first given out to print the identity cards of which only around 40 cards were printed including that of the President.

While army spokesperson Col Felix Kulayigye last week told press the army had taken over the Shs260bn contract, Internal Affairs State Minister James Baba insisted it was still under the latter’s docket.
