The Democratic Party has condemned the manner in which the retired former assistant Bishop of Kampala Archdiocese Dr. Zac Niringiye and eight other activists were arrested by Police.

The 9 activists were arrested and detained at Wandegeya police station yesterday as they tried to give out flyers containing anti-corruption messages at Makerere University but were later released on bond pending investigations.

DPs Spokesperson Kenneth Kakande says that the action of police proved that government is not prepared to fight corruption in Uganda.

Police in Kampala on Monday arrested the Bishop Zack Niringiye and other activists in connection with the Anti-Corruption crusade held every Monday dubbed, Black Monday where activists dress up in black to mourn the current state of the nation.

Bishop Zac was arrested as he participated in distributing Black Monday Newspaper and fliers at Makerere University.

Black Monday is a movement aimed at helping in the fight against corruption. The movement requires that Black Monday activists put on black every Monday. At first, the movement was supposed to release names of the corrupt officials in the country.

The black Monday campaign launched recently by civil society organizations is meant to pile pressure on government to take a tough stance on the corruption.
