Forum for Democratic Change [FDC] secretary for mobilisation Ingrid Turinawe has been arrested outside Nakawa Chief Magistrates Court.

Ingrid was arrested together with Kristeen Behimbisa and driven away.

They are currently detained at Kiira Division police station and will be charged for taking part in an unlawful procession.

According to police, Ingrid and other FDC members [mostly women] were walking in a group contrary to the law.

Before Ingrid’s arrest, a section of opposition youth had marched on Nakawa Court protesting the continued detention of Kizza Besigye at Luzira prisons.

The youth vowed to fight on claiming that Besigye who won the 2016 elections was the one in jail while the loser President Yoweri Museveni remains free.

Shouting on top of their voices, the youth branded President Museveni the “election thief” who remains free while Besigye “the people’s president” is in prison.

Kampala Metropolitan Police east regional commander, Siraje Bakaleke, says police will limit public access to Nakawa court.

He claimed they had intelligence that some group of people intended to disrupt peace during the court session.

As a result, FDC supporters were denied entry into the court.

On June 1, Turinawe and Makerere University Woman Councilor Doreen Nyanjura were on arrested in Nakawa after they attempted to walk to Namugongo Martyrs Shrine.

The two were from Nakawa Chief Magistrate’s Court where Besigye who is incarcerated for treason in Luzira prison was expected to re-appear for the mention of his case.
