Daisy (A founder of WONETHA) was almost shot when a policeman pointed a gun at her in a crowd of many in Kabalagala during the street outreach  last night, 18 May 2010,  by the police she was also beaten up badly by the this police man ( NYOMBI). We managed to file a case in Kabalagala police station that night, she made her statement and 3 other people.

We called Lillian from AJWS/Platform for Labour Action she requested their Lawyer Joseph to follow up the case.

Daisy is to see a Doctor to day so as to  have an X-ray and thorough check on her back where the police hit her with the back part of the gun.
