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.”

Opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) have threatened attempted murder charges on Inspector General of Police (IGP) Gen. Kale Kayihura, viagra 40mg http://concernedafricascholars.org/wp-includes/class-requests.php following a gruesome arrest of one of their own leaders while traveling to Rukungiri District for a public rally on Saturday.

The party has since expressed disappointment over the manner in which police under the instructions of the IGP violently blocked them from meeting the party supporters in Rukungiri.

The party spokesperson, http://demainechiropractic.com/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/modules/quiz.php Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda who was among the detainees, told journalists at the party headquarters in Najjanankumbi today that the party has resolved to take Kayihura and the involved police officers to court under the anti-torture law.

“The FDC condemns this barbaric behavior by police officers and personnel including Masaka RPC, Maxwell Ogwal and Rwizi RPC, Hillary Kulayigye and these must be brought to book. We intend to bring them to court under the Anti-torture Act,” Ssemujju emphasized.

“We intend to file a case of attempted murder against Ogwal; we also hold personally the IGP Kayihura for presiding over these crimes whose orders they were following,” he said.

Ssemujju narrated that at a place post called Kyoja near Kinoni Town in Lwengo District, the party members were ambushed by people in police uniforms commanded by Ogwal.

“Mr. Ogwal allowed the Leader of Opposition in Parliament Rt. Hon. Wafula Oguttu’s two vehicles including a police lead pick-up to pass and quickly threw a tire cutter in the middle of the Highway; the result of this inhuman action by a senior police officer was a nasty accident that nearly killed Col. Kizza Besigye, journalists and four Members of Parliament.”

“The vehicles that were not badly damaged continued with the journey. There was another attempt on our lives at Lyantonde when a man in police uniform ordered a driver of a break down to block the road.”

“We survived this attempt as well until when we were blocked by several police patrol pick-ups at a place called Kanyaryeru.”

The resultant scuffle saw one Fatuma Zaina the FDC Secretary for Environment being dragged on the road and undressed by female and male police officers

 
The Governments of Uganda and Tanzania on Sunday signed a Memorandum of Understanding to identify and assess the least cost crude oil export pipeline to the East African Coast.

The agreement creates a working framework for the potential development of a crude export pipeline project option from Hoima to Tanga Port of Tanzania.

It further aims at selecting a route that will result in the lowest unit transportation cost and constitutes the most viable option for the pipeline project.

According to Dr Fred Kabagambe-Kaliisa, recipe http://compuaprende.com/components/com_community/templates/jomsocial/layouts/email.user.deleted.html.php the Permanent Secretary of Uganda’s Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development, visit http://changescale.org/wp-includes/class-wp-http-requests-response.php the deal enables the parties to continue working together to fine tune studies and field work to further appraise the merit of a crude export pipeline option through Tanzania with a view to achieving the lowest unit transportation cost for crude oil from Uganda.

“If we can be able to get least cost pipeline to Tanga, medical then our crude oil will be exported cheaply. We need to carryout due diligence,” he said, adding, “This requires real technical work to inform citizens about the end-user tariffs and the Memorandum of Understanding sets a stage for carrying out detailed evaluation exercise.”

The deal follows an earlier Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between Uganda and the International Oil Companies licensed in the country for the commercialization of the newly discovered petroleum resources.

It was agreed that the crude oil discovered in Uganda is commercialized through crude to power, refining and export of crude oil to international market.

Dr Kabagambe-Kaliisa revealed that Uganda has looked at various options of developing the crude oil export pipeline that includes Hoima-Lacor-Lamu Port, Hoima-Nairobi-Mombasa Port, and now Hoima-Northern Tanzania-Tanaga Port.

“As a country, we are evaluating the routes with the idea that we have the least cost route because we would like to ensure that our crude oil has value,” he added.

The MoU, Kaliisa said, includes Total Exploration and Production Uganda and Tanzania Petroleum Development Corporation (TPDC).

In this regard, Uganda, Tanzania, the TPDC and Total E & P Uganda on the Hoima-Northern Tanzania-Tanga pipeline development framework.

Adewale Fayemi, the General Manager Total E & P Uganda, thanked President Museveni and Tanzania’s Kikwete for the impetus and facilitation of the process that has led to the signing of the deal.

“The MoU we have signed today is key milestone of achieving the least cost option to transport Uganda’s crude oil to the Indian Ocean Coast, and we look forward to fine tune the process,” he said.

He added that  Total is committed to support the route as least cost option and we shall collaborate with all the partners.

“This project is going to open new investment opportunities, and create jobs. We have that experience required to build and manage pipelines. I want to assure Ugandans that they have got all the support from TPDC and Government of United Republic of Tanzania.”James Mataragio, the Managing Director of TPDC said.

Ngosi Mwihava, the Ag Permanent Secretary of Tanzania’s Ministry of Energy and Minerals, said the crude oil export pipeline was the best mode of transportation especially considering the resources Uganda has in place.

“This infrastructure will stand the test of time in our regional cooperation. The due diligence is valid exercise because you have to justify the route you are going to consider to justify the least cost option,” he said.
