Ugandans border to border have been complaining about the manner security personnel abuse their arms.
It is not uncommon for police or army officers to shoot people they disagree with. Unfortunately, few people labour to understand events that preceed the shooting which sometimes lead to deaths.
That is why social media was horrified to see a football hooligan attempting to grab a gun from a UPDF officer.
First, it is illegal to remove a gun from an armed officer, if he or she is not misusing it.
The event took place during a Uganda Premier League game in Arua on Tuesday between home side Onduparaka vs Saints.
If the finger of the besieged soldier, like the photo indicate, had pulled a trigger, the football fan would be no more and all hell would break loose over a shooting of a so called “innocent” football fan!
