Bulemezi County representative, Sofia Lugolobi Nabwami says women seem to be police\'s target whenever misunderstandings arise. 

She demanded that the Inspector General of Police, Gen. Kale Kayihura apologises and explains why police officers undress women.

Early this month, police blocked the convoy of Forum for Democratic Change presidential flag bearer, Dr. Kizza Besigye while heading to Rukungiri for a rally. 

Television footage showed police officers undress FDC\'s Fatuma Zainab, while arresting her. Police however contests this version, and says the woman undressed herself in order to taint the image of the force.
