Police over the weekend used teargas to drive away people who were celebrating the presence of National Unity Platform President Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine in Masaka city.

The Leader of Opposition in Parliament Mathias Mpuuga who escorted Bobi Wine said the people remained put despite the teargas.

They formed a long convoy of cars and Boda Bodas that escorted NUP leaders to Kirowooza village in Nyendo-Mukungwe Division where the late Frank Ssenteza is buried.

Frank was a member of Bobi Wine’s security team but his life was brutally ended last year when a military truck overran him at Busega in Kampala.

The family is still mourning but with a strong commitment to the struggle.

From Kirowooza, Bobi Wine and Mpuuga headed to Bisanje Catholic Parish to stand in solidarity with Rev Fr Richard Mugisha who the police had framed in killing of a man who died while in custody at Masaka Police Station.

Fr. Mugisha is one of the strong advocates of respect of Human Rights and the Rule of Law.

“As we learnt, the DPP later dropped the charges because they were politically motivated,” Mpuuga noted.

“We also checked on Rev Fr Dennis Mayanja who authored the People Power creed. He’s currently bedridden.”
