Besigye tries to take cover and his aide Francis Mwijukye shows off his injury
The Forum for Democratic Change Boss Kizza Besgiye was this afternoon injured as police dispersed members of opposition from Katwe grounds. He was rushed to Case Clinic on Buganda road together with the Kampala woman MP Nabilah Nagayi who is on oxygen after suffering effects of tear-gas.

Dr. Kizza Besigye's bodyguard Francis Mwijukye was also injured in the upper thigh by a fragment as Ingrid Turinawe's car window was smashed. The Inspector General of Police (IGP) was quick at issuing a statement on the Katwe protests.

It read in part; "Police responded to the attack by deploying canisters of incapacitating gas. Contrary to some reports no live ammunition was fired, no baton rounds (rubber bullets) were deployed and no other weapons were used.

We are aware of reports that some civilians were injured during this incident. Again contrary to some reports, our information is that none are seriously hurt."

Meanwhile, the police post in Kasangati where Dr. Kizza Besigye stays has been elevated from a police post to a division. The number of police officers at the station has also been increased from 100 to 500.
