Writer Kakwenza arrested over new book ‘The Banana Republic’
Security has once again arrested the author of the Greedy Barbarian, Kakwenza Rukirabashaija from his Iganga home.
According to his lawyers, Kiiza & Mugisha Advocates, Kakwenza was arrested Friday morning 18th September 2020.
It came after writing another book, THE BANANA REPUBLIC, which recounts the grim torture of how CMI arrested, detained and tortured him for seven days from Easter Monday (13/4/2020).
“The CMI operatives had the audacity of tell his wife and area LC 1 Chairperson they were arresting him over his continued writing of literature critical of President Yoweri Museveni Kaguta, Uganda’s over 34 years military leader,” the lawyers said.
They added: “We demand immediate and unconditional release of the youthful novelist, journalist, law student and activist.”
