Kawempe Mayor, Mubarack Munyagwa, has been arrested at parliament.

On this month, Police in Kabalagala arrested and detained Munyagwa for fleecing a businessman of Shs 60m.

Munyagwa was arrested from Intertropical hotel in Nakulabye after a one Francis Kakumba accused the mayor of extorting Shs 60m to help his son, Isaac Muyanga, get a job.

Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesman, Patrick Onyango, said Munyagwa told the man that the minister for Presidency, Frank Tumwebaze, had written to him to nominate one person on Kampala Capital City Land board.

Munyagwa denied the charges.

On Tuesday morning, the troubled mayor was once again arrested at parliament and whisked away.

Munyagwa was arrested with other three youth under National Youth platform who had gone to Parliament to present a petition to the legal and parliamentary affairs committee demanding that opposition proposals for electoral reforms are considered in the bill.

Police first dispersed them at the north wing before they marched towards the main entrance on the south wing to force their way in.

They were rounded and rushed to Central Police Station and detained.

The mayor, however, denied involvement in the protest saying he was on personal business.
