Young female singer Spice Diana is nursing injuries following police thumping.
The musician was badly beaten last night during the Kampala Capital City Authority carnival.
She told this website: “This goes to police force in uganda . Today after my first performance at the carnival I was beaten So badly and disrespected by ruthless so called police officers and I am nursing wounds.
Dear #bivulu promoters as you invite us to entertain and happen with our people , also show some respect and value our dear lives therefore heir trained and professional police officers for security and not gamblers that have a lot of problems in there families and they try to console themselves by beating up innocent people like animals .And many of my fellow artists and innocent civilians have fallen victims which is unfair in our own country.
We giveyou power to protect us, keep law and order but ts you the same people that go against the law and do vice verser .why should we be treated like strangers in our own country. You employ heartless humans with no sense of humanity.
Today i have seen t with my two eyes ,many of my brotherz and sisters have been treated in a manner that is unnecessary ,i v realised that the current police z nothing but useless ,the way they handle situations is not professional yet they say they are trained ,they never apply their so called skills but only use their arrogance and so called powers to disrespect and toture there fellows humans like animals.
Dont forget that no one has more power than God. They hit you up the way they want knowing that evenif you report , they still win ,and still find ghurts to ask for money from you just because they have a say that POLICE TESINGIBWA MUSANGO
You hurt innocent souls ,but you forget that some of you are parents
So sorry to those that have fallen victims
The way you treat someone today , its the way you will be treated tomorrow.”
