Police surrounds Ingrid Turinawe’s home


Ingrid Turinawe

Police has heavily deployed at the home of FDC Secretary for Mobilisation Ingrid Turinawe and placed it under a siege.

The Iron Lady had just been released from jail [last Tuesday] after being arrested in Gayaza trading centre in Wakiso district.

She was detained at Nakasongola police station and later at Standard Investigations Unit in Kireka where she staged a hunger strike.

She was later charged with inciting violence, taken out of prison, driven and dumped at her home in Gayaza Wakiso district.

At exactly 1am on Wednesday morning, police deployed at Ingrid’s home and cordoned off the premises.

“Police has cordoned off my house. There is a heavy deployment. They have taken positions all around the house,” she said when we at last managed to get in touch with her.

She added: “I can’t guess what they want to do next, it’s deep in the night.”

Two police trucks were parked outside blocking her gate.

The deployment comes hours before jailed opposition leader Kizza Besigye is driven from Luzira to Nakawa.

He is expected at Nakawa Chief Magistrates Court at 9am for a fresh reading of terrorism and treason charges.

According to Ingrid, the siege is meant to prevent Besigye’s supporters from escorting him to court.

“Really, so they want our president to appear alone, in the dock without people!  As if, he has no supporters, as if he has no friends!  Oh God!” she exclaimed.

The siege at Ingrid’s home comes at the same time FDC officials are reported kidnapped.

According to FDC party spokesperson Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda, some of the party officials missing include Zeridah Kakayi, the FDC vice chairperson for Youth and Harold Kaija, the party deputy secretary general for Administration.

Kakayi was kidnapped on May 11 by unknown assailants who bundled her into a waiting vehicle outside Christ the King Parish Church in the heart of Kampala city.
