Human rights activists demand for disciplinary action against Kyaligonza

By Alice Lubwama

The Foundation for Human Rights Initiative (FHRI) has tasked Government to take disciplinary action against major general Matayo Kyaligonza for his actions against the police officer on duty rather than selectively applying the law to only his body guards.

The executive director Foundation for Human Rights Initiative Livingstone Ssewanyana says that the act of assaulting the traffic officer by Kyaligonza and his body guards show the increasing acts of impunity perpetrated by state security officers .

Ssewanyana adds that the Impunity by state security agents has reached acute levels and requires urgent remedial actions from the Government.

The Foundation also calls for an expeditious inquiry into the incident to ensure justice is served to the traffic officer and journalist who were both assaulted in the course of duty.

This is not the first time general Kyaligonza has been involved in controversial acts of impunity.

One incident is during the 2016 elections, where General Kyaligonza is alleged to have assaulted a journalist of Radio Hoima, Amlan Tumusiime.
