Police arrested two of them as they tried to run.
The OC Wilson Road police post, Mr Ituuza Nduhura said the two have been arrested for causing commotion in the city and disrupting other people’s businesses. They are to be transferred to Central Police Station from where they will reportedly record statements.

“Demonstrating is a right but you don’t have to go around burning president’s T-shirts. What did he do to them? We cannot allow this to happen,” ASP Nduhura said.
