Police deploy at DRC embassy ahead of FDC petition over Mugumyaand#039s arrest

Police have heavily deployed at the Democratic Republic of Congo embassy in Kampala after the opposition Forum for Democratic Change said they would petition the embassy over the arrest of activist Sam Mugumya.
Mugumya was arrested two weeks ago and according to the UPDF he was arrested for alleged involvement in rebel activities while the Congolese government says he is being held for illegal entry into the country.
The coordinator of the For God and My Country pressure group Mathias Mpuuga said they will be seeking explanations on why Mugumya was arrested, his whereabouts and current status.
Mr Mpuuga further said they will also seek for Visas from the embassy ahead of their intended visit to DR Congo on Thursday.
