Muntu on police raids: State covering its evils - #Uganda

FDC party president Mugisha Muntu has condemned a second police raid on their offices in Najjanankumbi along Entebbe road.
Muntu was denied entry into party headquarters as police forced their way inside the compound.
They had gone to pick declaration forms which have results contrary to what electoral commission chairperson, Eng Badru Kiggundu, announced on Saturday.
Muntu says police even blocked journalists from attending their weekly press conference.
He says they don’t have any communication about their arrested officials.
“After police raided our offices, they have now arrested 8 of our data entry staff and drove them away to unknown destination,” the party had said in a tweet earlier.
Deputy Secretary General of FDC, Harold Kaija, is also among those arrested.
Muntu says their eight data entry clerks have been taken to an unknown place.
He says the government is trying to cover up its ill deeds.
According to Ingrid Turinawe, the FDC secretary for mobilisation, FDC headquarter is now taken over by police led by a one DPC Kahebwa.
“He has just said he has been looking for me.”
The party says police and UPDF soldiers have destroyed their documents, computers and intimidated their volunteers.
