Kampala Metropolitan Spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire confirmed that a police case had been filed in relation to the incident.
“They will be called to write their statements and the court will take it up from there. No one has the right to beat up the other. He will be charged with assault or attempted murder depending on the clinic report and extent of injuries,” Owoyesigyire said.
