New Vision reports the Member of Parliament Winfred Kiiza who was pictured slapping a suspect in police custody denied doing so in a police statement.
And who will take up that case? A woman beggar is assaulted by a politician and with no idea of the justice system such a case will be left to collect dust in the police station. I hope somehow this MP would be taught about consequences of taking the law in your hands.
And there goes a news report detached from the context of the incident and any sort of deviation from the statement of denial.
