Makerere activist’s detention continues into the third day
The police detention of Musiri David, an activist from Makerere University has stretched into the third day according to close friends.
Musiri was arrested for peacefully demonstrating against the Electoral Commission’s failure to respond to his application to see the nomination documents of NRM’s presidential candidate Yoweri Museveni.
He earned the nickname ‘strike machine’ because of his rigorous participation in protests.
David led a strike against Makerere’s 15% cumulative tuition increment last year and he was among several students that were suspended by the institution.
