The Crime Intelligence Unit has commenced investigations
to establish the people believed to have sponsored two members of the Red Top
Brigade to disrupt parliament on Wednesday.
Mustafa Kafeero and Dafala Ssekanjako jumped from the
stranger’s gallery on to the floor of parliament to protest against president,
Yoweri Museveni and corruption in the country.
They dropped leaflets titled “A
letter to Africa and Uganda, stop cropping out citizens,” in which they
criticised Museveni’s leadership, which riddled with corruption.
Now, Patrick Onyango, the Kampala Metropolitan police
spokesperson, says the Crime Intelligence Unit has been tasked to
find the sponsors of the protest.

suspects that someone entered with the placards
and leaflets, which were distributed by the protesters in parliament. Onyango
says the suspects entered parliament as normal people without the leaflets.
Kafeero is currently detained at Jinja Road Police Division
while Sekanjako is locked up at Kampala Central Police Station- CPS. In his
statement at Jinja Road, Kafeero claims that he hails from Lwengo district but
is currently involved in land and property brokerage in Wandegeya and Namasuba in
Sekanjako claims to be a businessman but document confiscated
from him by police show that he is an engineer. Onyango says they have since
slapped the suspects with three counts and are likely to appear in court on

the fateful day and the actions he took in response to the fracas.
