It is alleged that un identified security officer has shot Mr Mayanja on his leg as he was addressing journalists on the situation at his Lord Mayoral offices at Mengo, along Balintuma road in Kampala.
“I am receiving treatment. My left leg has been injured,” Mayanja said.

In a tweet on his verified Twitter handle, Mayanja asked what crime he committed in trying to launch his office.

“Our office launch has been interrupted. So we planned to also launch my task force that will hand in hand work with me to the coming Lord Mayor elections. Question is What is our crime?” he wondered.

The Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson Patrick Onyango confirmed the incident and said two suspects have been arrested and detained at Old Kampala Police Station on charges of disobedience of lawful orders.

Onyango said that they talked to organisers of the launch to put in place all the necessary SOPs of the Ministry of Health something they refused to adhere to.

Onyago said, “This was going to be a breeding ground for Covid-19. We talked to them again and they decided to leave the venue but later on they reorganised and came attacking police. We responded by firing teargas to disperse them,”

Onyango however said that there were no injuries sustained by anyone in the process and that police did not fire bullets.

Its also alleged that Mr Mayanja’s campaign director Mr Lubowa Henry has been arrested by police officers commanded by allegedly SFC soldiers.

At the moment no body is allowed to enter Mr Mayanja’a offices or moving outside.
