Police has confirmed arresting a Makerere university second year student, Allan Mutagubya. The student was arrested yesterday in connection to the second phase of walk to work.
Police in Kampala have confirmed the arrest of Allan Mutagubya, a second year student of Makerere University, in connection with the Walk- to-Work protests.
Vincent Sekate, the Deputy Public Relations Officer, says the student is being held at Jinja Road police Station, pending an investigation.
Mutagubya was arrested together with 11 others on Sunday will be arraigned in court upon completion of the inquiry.
On Monday, Makerere University students led by their Guild President, Onekalit Denis staged a peaceful protest against the arrest of their fellow student.
Despite the pepper spray at the Main gate, the students beat the police block walking out past the main gate to Wandegeya and later to Central police Station.
The students carried placards, some of which read: release Allan Mutagubya now, detain corrupt officials not students and another read: detain NRM corrupt officials not activists fighting for their rights.
The Students first went to Buganda Road court to establish whether their colleague had been arraigned there. But they were disappointed to find out that Mutagbya was not in court. Onekalit later led the students to CPS to inquire the whereabouts of their colleague.
Others still in police custody at Jinja road are; Hassan Kirunda, Shafik Sebandeka, Robert Mayanja, Ziyadi Muteesa and Mathew Walakira. Others are:Jenny Lubega, Faridah Nakabugo, Seguya Tony, Alika Walter, Wesoti Alex and Rajab Kaya.
These suspects were arrested on the eve of the walk to work campaign spear headed by Activists for change group led by Mathias Mpuuga.
