A video of Uganda police force beating up a supporter of Kyadondo MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has emerged, causing many to shed a tear.
The horrendous experience was recorded by NTV Uganda on June 29, 2017.
Patrick Sande, the victim, accuses police of maiming him during clashes with Bobi’s supporters in the concluded Kyadondo East by-election.
The clashes occurred when angry voters stormed Kasangati guest house where it was alleged NRM members had hidden pre-ticked ballot papers for their candidate, Sitenda Sebalu.
Sande, a construction worker and father of three, was brutally arrested by police officers who beat him and stepped on his private parts, injuring them seriously.
“They wrestled me down. I was carried to a certain small room where I was locked and tortured. They kicked me in the private parts, squeezed them and injured them,” Sande told NTV.
He was detained at Kira Division Police Station for two nights without a meal or access to his family members until Bobi rescued him and took him to Capital Health Clinic in Kasangati.
According to doctors who treated the victim, Sande complained of chest and abdomen pains, was urinating blood and cannot sire children again.
