Heartbreaking photo of newlywed KTN anchor walking barefoot at Ugandan police station

Apparently KTN anchor Joy Doreen Biira had just been married in a traditional wedding before she was arrested by Ugandan soldiers.

 

Biira has been in detention for over 12 hours after she was arrested for sharing live updates on the storming of King Wesley Mumbere’s palace by Uganda People Defense Force (UPDF) commandos.

Ugandan ChimpReports says that the KTN journalist was picked from her uncle’s residence and taken to Kasese police station. She was arrested alongside five other people.

Biira who hails from Kasese District, had travelled to Uganda to get married to her husband, Newton Kungu, in a traditional wedding held over the past weekend.

The newlywed KTN anchor has been detained at Kasese police station with 139 royal guards who were arrested during the raid at the king’s palace.

Kasese police station has been a beehive of activities as relatives, friends and journalists camp outside to witness the unfolding of events.

A heartbreaking photo of Joy Doreen Biira walking barefoot at Kasese police station has sent Kenyans to strongly condemn President Yuweri Museveni and is dictatorial regime.

Photojournalist Atulinda Allan shared the photo of Biira in police custody as he confirmed that she hadn’t been released as claimed by some people.

“I say this again. Whoever is reporting that Doreen has been released stop it.. She is still under police custody. In a press briefing at Kasese CPS police say they are still holding Doreen for interrogation so far no charge against her. #FreeJoyDoreen”  Atulinda Allan tweeted.
