KAMPALA – In a bid to root for the cause of breaking of Forum for Democratic (FDC) offices, the party has hired private investigators.
Last week, FDC offices in Najjanankubi were broken into and several computers, files and many items were taken.
Addressing media at party headquarters in Najjanankumbi on Monday 25, John Kikonyogo, the party deputy spokesperson said this is intended to compare their report to that of police.
“As you are already aware, last week on Tuesday and Wednesday, our Party Offices both at Headquarters and in the district branch of Kasese were broken into. This is not the first time such an evil act is happening in Uganda,” said Kikonyogo.
“As we wait for the Police Report, the Party has contracted private investigators to do the same and this will enable us compare their report with that of Police to inform management of the next course of action,” he added.
Kikonyogo blamed police for not putting any efforts to curb down the vice, which he said has not only affected FDC, but other organisations as well.
“A number of offices especially for CSO’s have been broken into before i.e. Forum for African Women Educationalist, Save for Health Uganda, Action Aid Uganda, Human Rights Network (HURINET), Human Rights Network for Journalists (HRNJ), Citizens Coalition for Independent Media, The Observer News Paper, Legal Aid Service Providers Network (LASPNET), Refugee Law Project, Inter-Religious Council of Uganda (IRC) among others,” said Kikonyogo, adding that “The target in all these offices has been computers, files and where guards tried to resist killed. In all these incidents, Police has never issued any conclusive report.”
