Over a dozen Nansana Division officials spent Friday night in behind police bars for violating night curfew hours. Police picked them up at 9pm from Nansana Division headquarters where they were allegedly partying from.

Accordig to our sources, among the key among the suspects are Joseph Matovu, the Nansana Division LC III chairperson, Nasif Najja, the Division Speaker, Division councillors and 2  local council one chairpersons.

Luke Oweyesigyire, the deputy spokesperson Kampala Metropolitan Police area, says police picked up the leaders for violating the Standard Operating Procedures instituted by the government to stop the spread of COVID-19.

“They were found partying in one of the premises next to the division offices around 9 pm. We caught them with a cake as an exhibit and we still have it,” he said. The Nansana Municipality Member of Parliament, Wakayima Nsereko accused the police of arresting the people’s elected leaders without any tangible reason.

Imagine getting them from their offices. We are going to write to the Inspector General of police requesting him to call his people to order,” Wakayima told URN at Nansana Police Stations where he had gone to rescue the suspects.

Lydia Nakitto, a councillor at Nansana division, who was among those arrested, claimed that they were planning for their Independence Day football match between the division and the municipality. “But to our surprise police locked us up. It was even before curfew time. It was a very embarrassing experience,” she said.

The councillors vowed not to work with the police anymore for allegedly engaging in partisan politics. Shortly after their release on police bond, the councillors stormed Nabweru division playground for their independence match singing and chanting songs in praise of the National Unity Platform-NUP president, Robert  Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi  Wine.
