Photos of Ugandan police conducting body searches on fans entering a soccer stadium in the capital city of Kampala have gone viral on social media. The images purportedly show police groping women’s breasts and private parts as they searched for weapons and explosives ahead of Tuesday’s game at the Nelson Mandela National Stadium on Namboole Hill.
As the increasing threat of terrorism looms, Ugandan police are apparently not leaving anything to chance, but some may be taking advantage of the situation. Some of the women being searched couldn’t help but laugh, while onlookers appeared disturbed.
“Oh dear! Good I sat out on this game! So Uganda police was busy publicly fondling women at Namboole,” one woman wrote on Twitter Tuesday, after seeing the photos.
