The police spokesperson AIGP Asan Kasingye has apologized on behalf of the force for the manner in which one of MP Robert Kyagulanyi, also known as Bobi Wine’s supporters was arrested late last month.
On June 29, during the Kyadondo East by elections police arrested supporters of the independent candidate who tried to storm Kasangati Resort.
In one incident, a one Patrick Sande was seen being brutally arrested and also stamped in the private parts by police officers.
Speaking to journalists on Monday at Naguru, Kasingye said the manner in which he was arrested was inappropriate.
“They exerted a lot of force while arresting him which was wrong.We also saw a police officer stamping on his private parts,”the police spokesman said.
“I direct the DPC and Professional Standards Unit to investigate and charge the officers,” Kasingye ordered.
Narrating his ordeal over the weekend Sande said for 2 days he spent at Kira road police station, he had nothing to eat.
The father of three who was taken to Capital Health Clinic in Kasangati expressed concern he would never sire children again after confirmation from Dr. Jonan Kisembo from the clinic following the brutal arrest.
Kasingye now says it was wrong for officers to stamp onto private parts of suspects during arrest.
“Even if one has committed an offence, officers should restrain from use of such excessive force.”
