Police on Tuesday morning at the American Embassy in Kampala arrested two youth activists including the aide for former spy master Gen. David Sejusa, pill Moses Bigirwa and Allan Kitonsa for attempting to campaign for U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump.
The group of five under the Uganda Young Democrats had tried to storm the embassy in Nsambya where they sought to declare their support for Trump in the forthcoming elections.
“Trump in his manifesto said he would deal with long serving African presidents including President Museveni. We had to show our solidarity with him, ed http://cultura-sueca.com.ar/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/shortlinks.php ” Hakim Kizza, decease one of the members of the group who had stormed the embassy, told Chimpreports.
However, on arrival, the group was told by police that they could not be allowed inside the embassy because they had not obtained permission.
Their mission was then foiled as police arrested two of the members of the group as others took off for safety.
This website understands that Bigirwa and Kitonsa were detained at Kabalagala police station.
Kampala Metropolitan Area police spokesperson Emilian Kayima was however not readily available for a comment but had earlier warned they could not allow this ‘drama’ to proceed.
“They ought to have informed the embassy that would in turn write to us but this was not the case,” Kayima said earlier before the incident.
The group was last month arrested at the entrance of Parliament as it protested against the Presidential Age Limit Bill and detained at Kampala Central Police Station before being charged at Buganda Road court.
They however turned violent before abusing the trial magistrate and beating up the court State Prosecutor for refusing to grant them bail.
