The brutal and infamous DPC Old Kampala Police station, this web http://ccalliance.org/wp-content/plugins/sitepress-multilingual-cms/modules/disqus.php Joram Mwesigye appears before Buganda court on Thursday afternoon for assaulting and injuring journalists.
Chimp Corp Kenneth Kazibwe reports that Mwesigye is expected in the dock at 2pm.
The prosecution of Mwesigye will cool the rage in the hearts of journalists who witnessed the brutal assault on their colleagues by the unprofessional police commander this week.
Mwesigye used an electric wire to clobber scribes who were covering protesters in Kampala.
Police have since vowed to take a firm action against him and also apologised for the embarrassing incident.
“I am going to shoot you if you don’t stop filming what is going on now, site http://crosswordfiend.com/blog/wp-includes/link-template.php ” charged Mwesigye before mercilessly clobbering 28-year-old WBS cameraman Andrew Lwanga.
With huge strokes raining on his head, the journalist staggered before falling as blood oozed out of his head.
At this moment, the DPC attempted to escape from the scene only to be intercepted by angry journalists who demanded he explains his actions.
Instead of organising for an ambulance to take Lwanga to a medical facility for emergency care, Mwesigye dragged his victim into a car before dumping him at the police station.
It was Kampala South police Chief James Ruhweza, who on arrival at the police station, rushed Lwanga to Mulago referral hospital.
“We had to rush him to Mulago for treatment but we condemn the brutal act by our own officer. All those involved are to be investigated and brought to book,” Ruhweza explained.
