Uganda: FDC's Turinawe Summoned By Police for Vandalism

Western Uganda — The Police in Rukungiri district have summoned FDC's women league boss, Ingrid Turinawe Kamateneti, to answer a case of criminal trespass, malicious damage and removal of boundary marks.

A CIID officer in Rukungiri, John Tibihika, said Ingrid is needed at the police station before December 31, to answer to the charges against her.

It was alleged that on Dec 27, Ingrid Turinawe with her brother and two other unidentified people, maliciously removed boundaries for Rukungiri Central Secondary School at Kakabada cell, Kinyasano ward, western division Rukungiri municipality.

The school belongs to Rukungiri business tycoon, Eliasaph Kakwateki.

Turinawe, who was in Rukungiri for Christmas, could not be reached for comment as her phone was switched off. However, Kakwateki said he wanted the Police to investigate the motive of Ingrid Turinawe.

"This is a serious matter, because she could have wanted to harm me. There is no way a person could cut all the boundaries during broad daylight. I can't simply take it," he said.

Kakwateki added that Turinawe removed about 250 metres of the boundary of the school's netball pitch.
