Zaake names police officers who tortured him


Mityana Municipality MP Zaake Francis Butebi has named senior police officers he accuses of torturing him while in detention.

In his social media message, Zaake said the three police officers personally tortured him in various detention facilities between 19th and 29th April 2020.

They are; Senior Supretendant of Police (SSP) Kagarura Bob (‘Kagarura H Bob’ on Facebook).

Assistant Supretendant of Police (ASP) Mwine Alex Mukono (‘Mwine Mukono Alex’ on Facebook).

Victoria University

Detective Inspector of Police (D/IP) Twesigye Hamdan (‘Twesigye Hamdan’ on Facebook).

This followed his arrest for allegedly distributing food to victims of coronavirus lockdown in his constituency.

His torture attracted attention and was condemned both in parliament and in public circles.

Even religious leaders preached against torture using Zaake as an example.

Supreme Mufti Sheikh Kasule Ndirangwa came out strongly on Eid to condemn the torture that Zaake was subjected to by police and military officers.

“It always renews my faith to see religious leaders like you speaking against this and other forms of State injustice in Uganda,” Zaake said.
