The video of an FDC woman activist undressing herself while resisting police arrest along Masaka-Kampala Road has shocked the nation and deflated opposition’s claim that police stripped her naked.

Opposition claimed Zaina Fatuma, web http://demo.des.net.id/hospital/wp-includes/bookmark-template.php a little known FDC activist, find was violently arrested before stripped naked by what they described as the brutal police force.

Fatuma was among the top FDC leaders travelling with Dr Kizza Besigye for a rally in Rukungiri District on Saturday.

While it is evident that police never had a video camera to record the incident, an amateur film uploaded on the internet has now exonerated the law enforcement body.

It all starts with Fatuma, who was aboard a police truck, removing her blouse and throwing it away.

She then, hurriedly, removes her pair of jeans and knickers, exposing her private parts including the breasts.

Fatuma boldly charges at the police, hurling all sorts of insults.

It is at this time that a visibly sympathetic female traffic officer wearing a white uniform tries to dress up the violent woman.

In the background, a man’s voice is heard saying “The woman has showed us the entire television (private parts).”

This is not the first time women activists are undressing during protests.

Just a few months ago, women in Amuru stripped naked in the presence of departed Internal Affairs Minister Gen Aronda Nyakairima to denounce an alleged land grabbing scheme.

Nabilah speak out

The new video has sparked mixed reactions from the public with many, including Kampala Woman MP, Nabilah Sempala Naggayi, condemning Fatuma’s conduct.

Many described the activist’s behaviour as “disguising” and uncalled for.

“What in Heaven’s name is this?” wondered Nabilah who also shared the video on her Facebook page.

“My Goodness! Our country needs redemption! We should stop this as women and leaders of Uganda,” added the MP who has been at the forefront of fighting for women rights in the country.

Davis Kamanzi Lukyamuzi remarked: “The whole episode shows this unruly woman intentionally undressing. Pure madness and she is a known slut who did the same some back in Kampala. So she makes now news but deserves to be dumped in a zoo. Shame FDC.”

Police was unapologetic about the incident, saying, “The dignity of a woman begins with self respect, discipline and knowledge of the law.”

Police further urged the public to “comply with Police directives for the purpose of order. If any officer on duty directs you, please comply immediately.”

On claims that police used unreasonable force to arrest Fatuma, the law enforcement agency advised their officers to “use necessary force to uphold the law.”

Nada Anderson, a prominent Twitter enthusiast described Fatuma’s actions as “disgusting,” adding, “But why are people resisting arrest? It’s not like they can avoid it?”

He added: “My mother would have walked to the pickup peacefully. There’s a reason why they tell you “you have the right to remain silent’”.
