Makindye West Member of Parliament, Allan Ssewanyana has been arrested at a demolished Kyengeza, Munyonyo market in Makindye Division, Kampala.
A combined force of environment police and National Environmental Managemnet Authority (NEMA) demolished structures in an ongoing eviction of encroachers on Monday morning.
Police accused the MP of inciting violence.

The MP had visited the scene to assess the losses suffered by vendors.

“Don’t sit back as police demolishes your structures. And moreover they are acting in a way that we as leaders are not informed,” Mr Ssewanyana said before his arrest.

The vendors said they had been paying for space between Shs1 million and Shs 2 million to some local leaders.
