Mukono. Business came to a standstill on Saturday in Mukono town as protests erupted over Mr. Robert Kyagulanyi’s continued detention. This prompted action from armed men who fired live bullets and teargas to quell the protests.
The operation was led by the Mukono District Police Commander Rogers Sseguya and other officers in charge of different police stations in Mukono.
Moses Kiwanuka one of the residents said they can not sit back when the government is detaining and torturing people.
The residents started by blocking the Mukono-Kayunga road and then continued to block the Kampala-Jinja High Way.
The DPC Sseguya ordered shop owners who had kept their shops still open to close noting that their businesses would be destroyed.
On Friday, the police arrested several protesters in city suburbs in Kamwokya.
The residents were netted in a swoop overseen by Kampala North regional police commander Michael Musana.
The protests were sparked off on Thursday after news spread of the brutal arrest, torture and detention of Mr Kyagulanyi by the army.
