Barbie’s allegation that two people were shot in Nakaseke is false -Uganda Police
This morning, the 26 August 2021, a team comprising of the area Member of Parliament of Nakaseke Central- Hon. Allan Mayanja, Ms Barbie Kyagulanyi and others had some items which they wanted to donate to Kikamulo Health Centre III in Nakaseke.
As security, we advised the Hon. Member of Parliament and his entourage to coordinate the pop-up distribution with the Distribution District Anti-Covid 19 task force of Nakaseke, at Butalangu who would then deliver the same to the health Centre.
The two refused to comply and instead mobilized their supporters who came in big numbers and entered the medical facility, contrary to the Ministry of Health guidelines on COVID-19.
This necessitated the use of non lethal crowd dispersal methods including tear gas to disperse the crowds.
Allegations that two people have been shot at is not true. The issued statement by Uganda Police reads.
