Former Kampala Capital City Deputy RCC and activist Herbert Anderson Burora has been arrested and detained at Kira Division Police.

Kampala Metropolitan Police Deputy Spokesperson, Luke Owoyesigyire, stated that Burora was detained at Kira Division yesterday for “safe custody.”

Activists from Agora Discourse have suggested that a case of cyber harassment against the Speaker of Parliament, Anita Among, is likely to be placed on Burora.

Police need to stop acting like criminals! Lest they create the impression of being in cahoots with them,” said activist Godwin Toko.

Burora was suspended on March 14 by the Secretary to the Office of the President, Hajji Yunusu Kakande, for violating Uganda Public Service Standing Orders by publicly attacking the Speaker of Parliament.
