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.
