Effective Monday until the week’s end, National Unity Platform will be remembering comrades who were murdered during our 2021 presidential campaigns.

“It should be remembered that between 18 and 19 November 2020 alone, over 100 people were massacred on dictator Museveni’s orders during peaceful protests against the harassment we were facing during the campaign period,” said NUP President Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine.

He said the regime did not stop there but went ahead to murder more people in the last days of the campaigns including comrade Frank Ssenteza who was run over by a military police truck.

“In my speech at a commemorative event held today at our party Secretariat to honour the departed comrades, I have emphasised the need for all citizens to combine efforts and ensure that dictator Museveni is not only pushed out of power, but also that he is firmly held accountable for his atrocities.”

He said it is a shame that despite reaching the extent of holding pretentious national addresses to denounce torture and extra judicial murder, Museveni continues to shield perpetrators of the November massacre and other campaign-period murders including his own son.

“I have immense respect for the relatives, friends and associates of our murdered comrades who have rejected inducements by regime agents to unfairly blame us for the death of their loved ones. It is not us who call out dictator Museveni’s regime that should be held responsible, but rather dictator Museveni who seeks to bury the truth by sanctioning the murder of those who oppose him.”

“I equally salute comrades who have remained committed to the struggle despite the environment of unceasing State persecution in which we operate. You comrades exemplify the saying that it is better to die on your feet than on your knees.”

 After all, even those who sing the regime’s tunes ultimately face the same fate — see the mystery that surrounds Gen. Lokech’s death, he stated.  

“So let us push on, comrades, well-assured that a day is coming when we will all gather to discuss the future of our country without the ominous shadow of dictator Museveni hovering above us. But most importantly if not for anything else, we should push on in memory of our comrades who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.”
