Video: Anti-imperialism youth arrested at US embassy


A group of youth calling protesting foreign imperialism in Uganda have been arrested at the US embassy in Kampala.

The group of 10 so-called “anti-imperialism” youths were intercepted by police Thursday evening while attempting to storm the US embassy located in Nsambya.

On Sunday, the group led by Law Development Centre Guild President, Ronald Tugume, addressed press where they demanded that foreign embassies stop interfering in Ugandan matters.

The group demanded that America ceases to interfere in Uganda’s affairs or else government should expel all Americans.
“We have written to the different embassies asking them to stop interfering and making statements that can cause violence,” Tugume told journalists.

He added: “If they fail to listen, we shall take action which may include throwing them out of our country.”

The group was detained at Kabalagala police station.

In March 2015, police arrested 13 youths allied to former Prime Minister, Amama Mbabazi, while protesting at the US Embassy.

The group was protesting against what they called ‘30-years of president Museveni’s rule.’

The youth who were carrying placards with US president Barack Obama and Mr Amama were intercepted at the main entrance of the embassy.

“Obama and Mbabazi, save Uganda NRM Poor Youth and the poor people of Uganda,” read some of the placards.
