Uganda police led by the chief political commissar, AIGP  Asan Kasingye, Tuesday visited retired Masaka Diocesan Bishop John Baptist Kaggwa, to apologise over an incident in which officers fired teargas to disperse a Mbogo clan meeting he had been invited to officiate.

The Uganda Police Force-UPF have apologized to the Buganda Kingdom and the Catholic Church members who were directly affected by the fired teargas on the event.

On Saturday, police in Mityana District used teargas to disperse members of Buganda Kingdom’s Mbogo Clan who had convened at their ancestral site at Mugulu – Ziggoti Town Council to attend thanksgiving prayers for their leader, Elder Gajuule Kayiira Kasibante.

Kasibante served as head of Buganda’s 52 clans for seven years until recently when the Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II replaced him with Omutaka Namwama Augustine Nsereko.

The mass was led by retired Masaka Diocesan Bishop John Baptist Kaggwa, but the function was later disrupted by police and military officers who fired teargas to block more people from accessing the venue. In the ensuing melee, some elderly persons fainted after inhaling teargas.

Now addressing journalists at Government’s  Uganda Media Center, the police spokesman Fred Enanga said the police actions were to prevent a big gathering in a bid to stop further spread of Coronavirus in

“AIGP Asan Kasingye, today led a delegation of senior officers on behalf of the Inspector General of Police, to purposely meet the Rtd Emeritus John Baptist Kagwa at his home in Masaka and delivered apologies to him, his family and the catholic church fraternity. The meeting follows disruptions caused during the thanksgiving ceremony of the Mbogo clan at the clan headquarters in Mugulu village, in Singo,” police tweeted Tuesday.

Police had expected the attendance of Presidential hopeful Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine and Mityana Municipality MP Francis Zaake.

Police had said they were prompted to fire teargas because a group of rowdy youth had started gathering at the venue.

On Sunday, The prime Minister of the Buganda, Charles Peter Mayiga condemned police and the military actions for dispersing people who were attending a cultural event. Mayiga said that it was not wise to disperse people who were respecting the coronavirus (COVID-19) guidelines.

But according to police the organizers also did not receive clearance, which was a mistake.
