On Tuesday, police arrested Joachim Kimera for allegedly disarming Corporal Jack Rutabaleka, while on duty. The incident happened during the youth elections at Kiyaga Zone Bwaise I, Kawempe Division during the declaration of results.

It is alleged that the youth turned to Rutabaleka, who was providing security at the venue and insulted him.
