Police undresses women, brutally arrests Ingrid


Police brutally arresting Ingrid in 2012


Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Women League leader, Ingrid Turinawe, was Tuesday brutally arrested at Parliament.

Ingrid who was in the company of opposition leaders was arrested trying to force her way into the House.

FDC preacher, Doreen Nyanjura, said Ingrid was going to the legal parliamentary committee handling the constitutional amendments bill to the west wing of Parliament.

Opposition leaders and Pro-Democracy organisations were invited to meet Governance Parliamentary Select Committee to discuss issues concerning good governance in Uganda.

Ingrid had earlier on gone to City Hall court where activists bailed out their 11 colleagues arrested last week on a Shs 500,000 non-cash.

Accompanied by colleagues; Nyakato Rusoke and Nnalongo Hamida, Ingrid headed to Parliament.

The trio was, however, blocked by police, allegedly “undressed, dragged on the tarmac”, while

Ingrid was arrested and whisked away.

She was detained at Central Police Station in Kampala.

She was charged with inciting violence.

Prince Kahemba Babi, an FDC activist told us that they managed to secure a police bond for Ingrid late Tuesday evening.

Meanwhile, naked and reportedly badly beaten, Hamida aged 40, was rushed to Mulago hospital in a police ambulance but still naked (only in knickers), according to witnesses.

In 2012, Ingrid had her breasts “pinched and fondled” by police officers who arrested her at an opposition rally at Nansana.

Before the opposition pressure group, Activists for Change (A4C) was banned by the Attorney General, Ingrid had always been a target of police officers who made it a point to sexually assault her.

Women responded by staging a naked protest in the capital Kampala demanding for the prosecution of the officers who committed the act.

Ingrid too sued Felix Andrew Kaweesi, the then commander Kampala metropolitan and the then Attorney General, Peter Nyombi.

She demanded over Shs560 million as in damages saying the brutal action by the police embarrassed her before so many people in Nansana who watched her being harassed, and also her five children and husband.

She further demanded a public apology and compensation from the force.
