A baby has gone blind after police fired teargas inside her parents’ house as they dispersed Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine’s supporters, who had gathered to attend his presidential consultation meeting in Gayaza.
It alleged that the baby inhaled teargas and most of entered her eyes, damaging them severely after cops threw a teargas canister inside a room where a one-day-old baby was lying and it exploded.
Reports indicated that it may have caused blindness and the baby has stopped breastfeeding.
The baby was rushed to a nearby clinic for quick medical attention but by them a lot of damage had already been done.
However, the police are yet to issue a statement about the matter and whether they will compensate the affected child and her mother or not.
