Lukwago arrested and taken to an unknown location

Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago has been arrested. Lukwago was picked up by police as he attempted to leave his home in Wakaliga this afternoon and whisked away in an unknown location.

Police fired teargas and live bullets in the air to disperse the crowds who were moving with him after he managed to beat the tight security and sneaked out of his home. The mayor’s supporters pelted police with stones accusing them of working for president Museveni.
