23 November 2014, 18:36 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - A cross section of Uganda members of parliament  have demanded government to produce a comprehensive statement on the brutality of the  Kampala capital city authority enforcement officers.

The demand has been made by  Ken Lukyamuzi,MP for Rubaga south and Muwanga  Kivumbi of  Butambala on behalf of all opposition MPS, following the death of a two year old baby boy who was knocked dead by a KCCA vehicle after he was brought to court to be breast fed by the mother.

Lukyamuzi explained to parliament that the child was knocked as it tried to cross over to the mother who was arrested for selling merchandise on the street.

''Lukyamuzi said,''The mother had left her baby at home when she was arrested.She spent a night in police cell.In the morning her relatives brought the baby at court so that the mother breasts feeds him but KCCA law enforcement officers did not allow the her  to get access to  baby.''

The baby was reportedly removed from the relatives a law enforcement officer and taken behind the court where vehicles park.He abandoned him there and a vehicle which was being reversed knocked him as he crawled.
