National Unity Platform (NUP) has spoken out on members of the Leadership Committee in Kasese District who were arrested by security forces.

“The five of them were meeting as part of our mobilisation efforts which will eventually lead to building party structures across the country,” said NUP president Bobi Wine.

According to him, they were arrested by the police and military who found them at the home of the District Chairperson.

They include; Basisa Bryan (the NUP District Chairperson, Kasese District), Mumbere Isaac, Bwambale Geoffrey (aka Western Prince), Isande Atanazio and Kule Oniz.

He said their explanations about the party activities fell on deaf ears.

“Today, it became apparent that the regime has decided to charge them with treason. How shameful! Our legal teams are doing their best to see how they can help these comrades. This is why #DictatorMuseveni is trying hard to remove bail so that he can detain such comrades and they have no redress under the law.”

He added: “Such things are why we are consistently rejecting the dictator’s schemes to try and sanitise himself such as IPOD. How can we be part of such platforms when the regime views political parties as enemies who must be crushed in such a manner.”

Police spokesperson CP Fred Enanga said the leadership of the Joint Security Agencies has obtained credible intelligence about plans by NUP, the newly formed “Peoples Front for Transition, and other political actors, to hold riots and political demonstrations across the country, beginning, Monday, 8.11.2021. 

So far 4 suspects have been arrested from the NUP cell in Kasese with plans of incitement to violence and related subversive activities. 

All suspects who include; Basisa Bryans, a 37-year-old, male adult and resident of Kamaiba ward, Kasese district; Mumbere Isaac, a 31-year-old, male adult, of Nyangi village; Bwambale Geoffrey, a 29-year-old, male nurse of Nyagoda 1 village and Isande Atanazio, a 27-year-old Laboratory technician of Ibanda I cell, are under custody at Kasese Police headquarters.
