On Thursday during Kyadondo East MP Bobi Wine’s homecoming from US, a number of people including his supporters were arrested and detained in several police posts.

Now, in a video making rounds on social media, police officers at Kajjansi police station are seen beating, slapping and kicking an unidentified man allegedly arrested for putting on a red ‘People power’ T-shirt.

“Who told you people power is real power? Do you see people power here,” one police officer said.

However, police has noticed with concern that their officers behaved in unacceptable manner and that they have opened an inquiry into the officers’ conduct.

Police says, “There is a video circulating on social media platforms showing our officers behaving in a manner that is unacceptable under our professional code of conduct.  We have opened an inquiry into the conduct of these officers. These acts are not institutionalized, but individual acts that have no place in the Uganda Police Force. This is why all individuals involved will be investigated and penalised in accordance with the law. Justice will be done,”
