Police has violently dispersed a march by members of Uganda Journalists Association (UJA) and arrested several of them.
Led by UJA President Bashir Kazibwe, the journalists were heading to police headquarters in Naguru to petition against brutality by the force meted out on fellow journalists.
They were intercepted and arrested on Jinja Road before being detained at the Central Police Station in Kampala.
The journalists were later released but vowed to continue to Naguru police headquarters to meet the IGP Okoth Ochola over continued police brutality on them.
The march was announced last week after police brutalised journalists who were covering protests at Makerere University.
Some of those teargased by police were Alex Esagala, a Daily Monitor photojournalist, Geoffrey Twesigye, a photographer with NTV Uganda and Lawrence Kitata of Vision Group, among others.
