At least a dozen people have been arrested in an operation commanded by Assistant Commissioner of Police Dennis Namuwooza.
The protesters accused the government of arresting and torturing MPs Bobi Wine, Francis Zaake and others who were arrested in Arua last Monday, following a fracas that happened between MP-elect Kassiano Wadri’s supporters and those of NRM candidate Nusura Tiperu.

Over 30 people including MPs and journalists were arrested.
