Uganda Police Force has been sued by human rights activist Ms. Annette Nana Namata. The complainant claims that her uterus was removed because of intense bleeding while giving birth following an alleged injury she suffered after Police assaulted her.
Ms. Annette is a single mother of five. The fateful injury was suffered at the Police Headquarters in Naguru on April 24 when she had gone with other activists to demonstrate against Police’s continued dispersing of FDC’s rallies and the deployment at the home of Kyadondo East MP, Robert Kyagulanyi.
Miss Namata is a popular activist in Kampala who has also protested against the killing of Ronald Ssebulime by police. In September 2018, Ms Namata stormed a meeting on tax policy in Kampala and grabbed a microphone from the speakers, saying government was not doing much to take care of its citizens.
The police spokesperson, Mr Fred Enanga, confirmed that the lady had sued police. “The problem is that some of these activists mistake indiscipline with activism. But since she has gone to court, our legal department will respond accordingly,” he said.
