Youth drop piglets at parliament, arrested

Two people have been arrested for dropping 10 piglets at Uganda’s parliament in protest of MPs Sh200m cars.

The yellow and blue painted piglets were dropped at the gate of parliament on Thursday morning by two youth activists donning white shirts who are believed to be members of the jobless brotherhood.

Donning on white t-shirts, the youth carried four sacks that contained the piglets before letting them loose at the main gate of parliament.

Dramatically the two youth tried to take off but were arrested by security officers manning the gate.

This is not the first time youth are dropping pigs at parliament.

In 2014, two youth dropped four piglets, painted yellow at parliament over what they called high rates of corruption among legislators and youth unemployment. Yellow is a symbolic colour for the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) while blue is the symbolic colour for the opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC).
