Kampala, 08th February 2013; A Wavah Broadcasting Services (WBS) television journalist, William Ntege a.k.a Kyumakyayesu who was sprayed by the police during an arrest in Kampala, has developed a strange skin reaction. It is not clear what substance was used to spray at the journalist. He first complained of an irritating skin, which started peeling off two days later, starting from the chin and later the forehead and in the sides which were most sprayed at.
Ntege, who on the 25th January 2013 had camped at the police headquarters along parliamentary avenue in Kampala, was sprayed with pepper before he was violently arrested and whisked away on a police car to the Central Police Station (CPS) from where he was detained. He was charged with ‘obstructions’ and released on police bond the next day.
