An unidentified police officer shot and injured himself while trying to restrain protesters from accessing FUFA House in Mengo.
According to Peter Mukasa, an eye witness, the unidentified policeman, part of a group of four, shot his leg after his gun accidentally went off.
‘’On the arrival they cocked their guns and moved to the gate to stop the rival group (of FUFA) from accessing the offices. In the meantime, they exchange words and shoved each other, then I herd the gunshots. Suddenly the officer fell down saying ‘Solomon you have killed me’’’. Mukasa said. He said the injured officer was taken to hospital for treatment as police investigates the incident.
The protesters led by ex-internationals George Semwogerere and Dan Walusimbi aka Jjajja Walu say FUFA boss Moses Magogo is corrupt and want him out.
Both Walusimbi and Semwogerere were released recently following their arrest about two weeks ago for the same transgression.
