Police on Tuesday afternoon swung into action and blocked members of A4C who were marching to the embassy of the Democratic Republic of Congo in Kampala to present a petition seeking the release of Dr.Kizza Besigye’s aide, seek http://crmsoftwareblog.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/functions.gallery.php Sam Mugumya.

The activists had prior to the march signed the 5 page petition in which they sought the embassy to clear the air  in relation to the arrest and detention of  Mugumya, hospital who the army said had been arrested for subversive activities in the DRC.

According to A4C coordinator Mathias Mpuuga, diagnosis http://cizgisactasarim.com/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-themes-list-table.php the petition sought the DRC embassy in Uganda to take interest in Mugumya and avail information and circumstances leading to his arrest and detention by the Kinshasa government.

“We want H.E Jean-Charles Okot Lolakombe (DRC Ambassador to Uganda) to inform us about the steps being taken by his government in terms of investigations, his detention location, steps taken to ensure his safety and how his family can easily access him,” said Mpuuga in a joint press conference at the headquarters of 4GC at Katonga, Nakasero on Tuesday morning in Kampala.

He added, “We would like the Head of the Mission to kindly consider our visa applications due for submission seeking clearance to travel to the capital Kinshasa.”

The group led by Mpuuga, Dr.Kzza Besigye, Erias Lukwago, Asuman Basaalirwa and Ingrid Turinawe after signing the petition proceeded to the Congolese embassy along Phillip Road.

However at around mid-day, police led by Kampala Metropolitan, East Region Police Commander, Siraje Bakaleke swung into action and blocked the activists from proceeding to the embassy.

In an interview with ChimpReports, Dr.Kizza Besigye noted that it was wrong for police to block them after being cleared by the embassy.

“We got a letter from the embassy allowing us to take the petition. How could police stop us? We shall try delivering it in one way or the other,”Besigye said.

However Bakaleke explained that the group ought to have sought permission from the Foreign Affairs Ministry before proceeding to the embassy.

“We could not allow them proceed to the embassy because diplomatically they had to follow procedures by going through the Foreign Affairs Ministry,”Bakaleke explained.

According to UPDF Dr.Kizza Besigye’s aide Sam Mugumya was arrested and detained last month by the Congolese army for engaging in subversive activities.
