Davis Kamutima, a driver to Forum for Democratic Change (FDC)’s chief mobiliser Ingrid Turinawe, has now been rushed to Nsambya hospital following a beating by police yesterday.
Kamutima was arrested alongside his boss and Mwesige Joram Kyenjojo, an activist, while leaving Nakawa court where Dr. Wrn Kizza-Besigye had appeared for the mention of his treason case.
The suspects are accused of defying police orders under the command of Siraj Bakaleke, the Regional Police Commander (RPC) Kampala Metropolitan police (KMP).
FDC deputy secretary general Harold Kaija said Kamutima was beaten into coma and later admitted at Naguru hospital.
Makerere LCV woman councillor Doreen Nyanjura who visited the hospital said Kamutima’s legs are broken.
On Thursday morning, Kamutima was discharged from Naguru only to be rushed to Jinja Road Police Station by the police which has been waiting on his bed post.
At Jinja Road Police Station where Ingrid is still detained, lawyer Wilberforce Seryazi managed to secure a bond for the driver said to “have been crippled by police”.
He was reportedly still unable to stand or sit but would only lie on the floor.
He was rushed to Nsambya hospital thereafter for further treatment.
Nyanjura who is by his bedside told Insider Kamutima has been put in an emergency room where x-ray and scan tests would be conducted.
