Opposition Democratic Party [DP] has threatened to drag Ugandan Ambassador to Burundi Rt. Maj. Gen Matayo Kyaligonza to courts for allegedly humiliating a female traffic police officer on Sunday.
Addressing media this Tuesday, DP party president Norbert Mao described Kyaligonza as a disgrace to both government and National Resistance Army [NRA] heroes.
The party condemned in strongest terms the disgraceful conduct of Kyaligonza who is also a member of historical command council of NRA and NRM vice president for western Uganda.
His bodyguards assaulted and humiliated a police officer, Sgt. Esther Namaganda.
Ugandans should recall that this is not the first incident of Kyaligonza’s senseless behaviour, Mao noted.
He said some time back, some body was killed at his building site in Makindye Division.
In 1989 Kyaligonza assaulted a police officer ASP Tumusiime at Jinja Road and went away with it.
“Now it’s Namaganda! This is a sign of gross impunity that Ugandans are suffering every other day. This behavioural pattern MUST stop.”
“We call on Gen. Kyaligonza to apologize to Sgt. Esther, police fraternity in particular traffic police unit, women and to all Ugandans for behaving disgracefully.”
In addition, Mao demanded that President Museveni recalls Kyaligonza back from Burundi.
“Lastly, DP has decided to prosecute Gen. Kyaligonza in courts of law in line with our principle of fighting for human rights and freedoms in this country at all times.”
