The previous night, DP's Mao had been transferred to Nakasongola prison though back at the DP headquarters located on the City House building, a group of young democrats had started walking to Luzira prison to go and check on their leader.
Police did not even allow them to think about it. The moment they started the walk, anti-riot police together with tear gas vehicles dispersed the group with tear gas around the City House building paralysing business in that area.
For several hours,offices, shops and movements around that area were affected. Mineral water bottles and hankies had instantly become a booming business because there was no way the tear gas would not work on you if you passed that area. The tear gas could pierce your eyes as though they have been sprinkled with pepper, but you had to open them to be able to run for safety.
However, you could not afford to walk without covering your nose. Meanwhile, the DP members have warned that that was just the beginning and Tuesday they will start from where they stopped. Good Friday has been generally peaceful.
