National Unity Platform Monday held a press conference during which the party decried and called an end to the renewed persecution of members and supporters of the the National Unity Platform and the opposition in general.

Just last week, Police in Kasese District raided and arrested 5 of members comrades.

“We understand that they are being charged with treason and other politically-motivated offences,” said NUP President Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine.

“Our our lawyers are already on ground to handle the situation. We also used the occasion to dedicate a prayer for our departed comrades including Bukasa Parish Councillor Kansiime Ritah and Rasta Twaha who passed on last week.”

He added: “Our struggle for freedom is not a straight sprint to victory, but rather a treacherous marathon. Regardless, we must keep moving!”

Joel Ssenyonyi, the party spokesperson, told journalists that four of their party leaders were arrested in Kasese District last week as they conducted a grass-root meeting and were charged with treason.

They are: Bryans Basisa, the NUP chairperson for Kasese District; Jeff Bwambale, the party coordinator for Bundibugyo; Sunday Tonozo from Ntoroko District; Oniz Kule, the NUP coordinator for Hima Town Council; and Isaac Bwambale, a party member.

Ssenyonyi said the government was arresting their members in a bid to frame them over treason and other capital offences in line with President Museveni’s proposal on scrapping bail and bond for some suspects.
