On Thursday, presidential aspirant Amama Mbabazi was arrested in Jinja town and brought to Kira Road Police Station in Kampala. Supporters and journalists flocked to the police station and in the high tension atmosphere, physical altercations between the police and Mbabazi supporters broke out. These are my photographs from that day.
Police enforce a strict barrier between journalists, the public and the police station while presidential hopeful Amama Mbabazi is inside.
The strategy was ‘containment’.
Two Mbabazi supporters look on in horror as police and civilians begin to clash.
Police and Mbabazi supporters stumble into traffic while in the midst of a physical fight.
An Mabazi supporter distributes posters along Kira Road. Seconds later he had to run from the police or face arrest.
As the police pull up just out of view, supporters make their case to passing traffic.
