National Unity Platform members in South Africa have also staged protests outside the offices of the United Nations in Pretoria against President Museveni’s regime in Uganda.
“You too can raise your voice wherever you are, inspired by the fact that in due course, our combined voices and actions will not leave the illegitimate regime standing,” said the party president Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine.
On Monday, leaders from the National Unity Platform held a press conference to comment about a number of issues disturbing our country.
In his communication, Bobi Wine decried the continued abuse of the rights of Hon. Ssegirinya Muhammad and Hon. Allan Ssewanyana who were charged with murder, terrorism and other offences two weeks ago, in purported connection to the serial murders in Masaka.
Hon. Ssegirinya was re-arrested after being released on bail. The same thing happened to Hon. Ssewanyana last week.
It is evident that these two are victims of State persecution on account of their political affiliation to NUP, Bobi Wine noted.
He also condemned the selective enforcement of COVID-19 restrictions by the regime with the intention of entrenching itself in power.
“It is unconscionable to force businesses run by ordinary, hardworking citizens to close, while those run by corrupt government officials and their relatives remain open and running.”
He expressed concern about the bleak future of school-going children and youth who have now spent nearly 2 years home.
He said the continued closure of schools is majorly the result of incompetent and unbothered leaders in the education sector, rather than a genuine intention to contain Covid-19.
“Closing schools to contain Covid-19 is no longer a smart idea.”
