Dokolo Woman Member of Parliament is yet to discover what exactly Ugandan police officers are always searching in the open legs of female opposition politicians.
Hon Cecilia was responding to the undressing of Secretary General for environment, Naigaga Fatuma, over the weekend while she was being arrested along Mbarara-Masaka high way.
In a special parliamentary session presided over by Hon Speaker Rebecca Kadaga, Cecilia said the undressing of women by untamed “partisan” police has become a matter of National importance.
In her capacity as a woman, Cecilia had no kind words for the force.
She was especially enraged by the police spokesman, Fred Enanga, who called Naigaga a harlot saying she had undressed herself.
This was picked up by the government spokesperson, Ofwono Opondo, who said FDC women were undressing in public to blackmail police.
Cecilia says Naigaga was not only manhandled by the police but also insulted as “a harlot”.
She said the same has happened to others like Ingrid Turinawe, FDC secretary for mobilisation, and Nagayi Sempala, Kampala Woman MP.
“Why does Police target women?”
She wondered whether the police expects parliament to appropriate money for the police to commit atrocious crimes.
“I mourn for the Late Aronda [Nyakairima, former Internal Affairs ministers] who promised that the Police would not maliciously handle Ugandans, he went too soon.”
“Is there substance [marijuana] abuse among the police?” she queried.
She wondered whether cops instead are promoting pornography.
“…because they always tear women’s legs apart.”
Only yesterday, the police chief, Kale Kayihura, warned NBS and NTV against following opposition activists and broadcasting naked women on television.
