Today marks 91 days since members of Bobi Wine’s campaign team were arrested in Kalangala district.
The National Unity Platform leader says they were tortured and eventually dumped at Kitalya prison.
“I have seen this picture and remembered the hell we went through each day on that campaign trail,” he noted.
He was referring to a photo taken by Daily Monitor Photojournalist Abubaker Lubowa.
“These comrades braved the most cruel circumstances.”
He says they withstood bullets, sound bombs, teargas, grenades, batons, pepper-spray, etc.
“As the violence and vile cruelty intensified, their resolve only grew stronger because they knew they were not committing any offence.”
“Every struggle for freedom and democracy has its heroes. You comrades are heroes. Uganda will be free,” he added.
