Parliament has been thrown into panic after a smartly dressed man attempted to walk in with a child’s head that he said is a gift to the Speaker, Rebecca Kadaga.
The child’s head was neatly wrapped as gift, and had it not been for the alertness of the police manning the “strangers” gate, the “gift” would end up at Kadaga’s office.
The man whose identity is not yet disclosed, was intercepted at the gate opposite the National Theatre by security.
When asked by security where he was going, he said he was delivering a gift to the Speaker.
This prompted the security officers to ask what was in the gift parcel and on opening it, they reportedly discovered that it was a child’s head.
He was readily apprehended and briefly detained at Parliament police before being whisked away to Kampala’s Central Police Station.
Our reporter later observed a security detail carrying a black briefcase with gloves, being taken out of the parliament building.
Police officers at the security checkpoint described the man as a smart, composed man, with a face mask.
Helen Kaweesa, the assistant director of communications and public affairs at Parliament said that her office is yet to receive an official report from the Police.
Kampala Metropolitan Police deputy spokesperson, Luke Owoyesigire also says that they are still investigating the incident.
