National Unity Platform leader Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine Wednesday visited Kitalya Government prison to stand in solidarity with his comrades who have been incarcerated there for 43 days now.
Everybody, including their jailers know that these comrades are not here because they committed any offence, he said.
“Their crime is loving their country and trying to rescue it from the fangs of violent oppressors.”
“I looked at the thick walls of Kitalya and thought about the hundreds of NUP supporters incarcerated there for no crime whatsoever. I saw the tears of mothers, relatives and friends who came to see their people, but were kept outside. Gen. Museveni can continue to sow seeds of hatred. He will surely reap its fruits a hundred fold.”
Before, he checked on his brother and comrade Segawa Ronald at hospital.
He said Segawa was kidnapped by security operatives and for about two weeks, his whereabouts were not known by any body.
“They searched everywhere, until they discovered him at Mulago hospital where he was brought to the mortuary because they thought he was dead. On inquiring, they were told that he was found abandoned on the roadside. It seems after torturing him, they thought he had died.”
“Segawa is the young man who appeared in a video, painted in yellow colors, encouraging people to vote for us. He is only 22 years of age. In that video, he indicated that he was just hired and went for an NRM event to get some money, but he encouraged people to vote for me in the election. Since that time, operatives started trailing him and he expressed fear for his life to his friends and family.”
He went on: “It is horrendous what they did to him. His body is filled with wounds. He was burnt and electrocuted. Puss has been oozing out of his nose and eyes. They plucked out his finger nails, and his hair. It is a miracle to see that he can still breath.”
Bobi Wine said this is Uganda in 2021.
“That is why we are taking Gen. Museveni to the ICC. He is a pure candidate. These crimes against humanity must be accounted for.”
