UPDF have today arrested a senior officer who allegedly commanded the brutal operations of Makerere University students during the three nights of military unrest on MUK hostels, this comes at the backdrop of both national and international organisations and leaders from all political divide and public domain condemning the force that UPDF used in containing the chaos at Makerere University.

The development was confirmed  by the UPDF spokesperson  Brig. Richard Karemire, who identified the errant officer as Capt. Ronald Lubeera, who is  in command of  the Military Police Detach in Kampala.

Brig.  Karemire revealed that Capt. Lubeera is currently in  detention at the  the Military Police Headquarters in Makindye  as investigations continue.

The Police and the military came under national and global criticism for using excessive force on Makerere University students last week as  they protested against the 15% tuition increment, a decision that has since been rescinded by the University Management.
