Controversial Makerere University Researcher Dr Stella Nyanzi, Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago and Pastor Happy Ngabo have been arrested by police, after they went to Najjanankumbi, the headquarters of Forum for Democratic Change party to attend ‘defiance prayers’, held by the opposition every Tuesday.
The arrest of the three opposition controversial figures follows a directive by Deputy Chief Justice Steven Kavuma, barring any ‘acts of defiance’ by the opposition.
The opposition accuses Justice Kavuma of being an NRM party cadre. Kavuma served as State Minister for Defence in the early 2000s and he was among the legislator that registered NRM party as promoter
However, in a show of defiance, yesterday Forum for Democratic Change president Major General John Greg Mugisha Muntu said the party would not heed Justice Kavuma’s directive.
