Unidentified people protesting against the removal of age limit have on Thursday morning set a coffin ablaze to express their fury against NRM’s move to table a private members bill today at parliament to amend article 102b.
The protesters burnt the coffin in front of Lira Main Market in Lira town.
Eyewitnesses said the group allegedly commanded by a woman appeared very organized and smart.
“They were using two vehicles. People in the first vehicle offloaded two tyres, poured petrol on the tyres before burning them using a matchbox. Then those in the second vehicle removed the coffin and dumped on the fire, and that is how they disappeared,” said a boda boda who preferred anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue before hand.
Apparently, the situation in and around Kampala is very tense and security is beefed up everywhere ready to suppress any form of procession.
