“We slept in turns, unsure of what would happen the next day,” said Barbara Itungo, wife of NUP Leader Robert Kyagulanyi, while narrating her experience when they were confined to their house in Magere, Wakiso district for 11 days.
Itungo told NTV that at one point their food supplies ran out and they were forced to stretch the remaining rations, uncertain of how long the restrictions on their movement would last.
And although the army and police have now withdrawn from their home, Itungo does not feel safe.
She said they spent sleepless nights during the days they were confined under house arrest.
Barbie told NTV on Tuesday that they lost their privacy to the men in uniform and their constitutional rights were also violated.
“There is a (CCTV) camera near the corner of our house. That camera is so long that it looks into our bedroom,” she explained.
Social media reports alleged she had cited sexual starvation thanks to this camera that invades their privacy.
We couldn’t independently verify those claims since Barbie doesn’t reveal such in the recorded interview.
However, Barbie says that they were thankful that all this trauma happened after they had taken their children to United States of America for the situation would have been much harder if they had kids around.
