Having failed to make any response in regard to the case,or make efforts to clear up the debt, Court bailiffs were this afternoon unleashed at the Garden City branch.

These are said to have ransacked the shelves and grabbed piles of merchandise. Eyewitnesses say the bailiffs seized anything valuable from the store from which the said money could be recovered.

Later on, other suppliers reportedly arrived at the store and demanded to be allowed by police to seize their own goods before it closes down.

The struggling supermarket, which also owes Power Suppliers Umeme up to Shs 70 million, a week ago, fired more than 180 workers before closing down two branches in Kampala.

The workers at the Nateete and Kabalagala branches were reportedly asked to go on leave for 21 days and wait for communication from the head office in Nairobi.

The workers told media that they had not been paid their wages for the previous month.

Last year the chain store management closed off the Freedom City branch, saying it had not performed to expectations because of poor location.

Uganda Police have issued a statement describing some of FDC activists as “hired goons” following clashes with the opposition party’s members along Masaka-Mbarara road on Saturday.

Police publicist Fred Enanga said a one Fatuma Naigaga “undressed herself, seek http://crunchydomesticgoddess.com/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/modules/listo.php falsely claimed that security undressed her later and insulted the Police.”

Enanga said the “female political activist indecently exposing her nakedness, sildenafil http://circleofliferediscovery.com/blog/wp-includes/registration.php is a subject of investigation who will be charged in due course.”

He further stated that security has noted that “some of these people are hired goons who are ready to undress or do anything to create an impression that they are being harassed by security personnel.”

The statement is likely to anger the FDC which claims its leaders were violently arrested by highhanded police officers.

FDC spokesperson Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda said the party is considering suing police officers including IGP Gen Kale Kayihura of attempted murder.

The videos and photos of Fatuma’s nude body have sparked mixed reactions from the public.

While opposition supporters claim she was dragged on the tarmac and violently subdued by police, cheap government officials maintain the activist was unruly which necessitated force to bring her to order.

Of recent, Enanga said today, several politicians especially the opposition, have “adopted nudity of adult women of all ages as a form of political and protest action.”

He said in Uganda, the FDC as a party are using it as a statement to “give life to their political ambitions over sympathetic voters.”

Enanga elaborated that although the “naked body has been used as an instrument of protest or tool of objection by many different groups of activists, it is a provocative technique where some activists present themselves in a deliberately provocative way in order to shock the viewer and draw awareness to their political and social protest.”

He added: “As you must all be aware, in our country laying bare one’s body in public not only remains a taboo but is also perceived as a disturbance of proper public order. It is in addition exploitative and an insult to women and their valves, especially where they are hired to indecently expose their nakedness.”

Enanga cautioned the public especially young women to “guard against such acts of criminality and further caution the media from displaying such brazenly disturbing photos and video footages.”
