On Thursday afternoon about fifty supporters of the opposition National Unity Platform party who were recently released from Kitalya by the military court in Makindye, met and interacted with the party officials about the ordeal they underwent at the time they were sieged and waylaid by UPDF intelligence wing dubbed CMI.
Most of them have been in prison for periods between 1 year and 2 years. They were charged with being in possession of the #PeoplePower berets, in line with a directive that was passed by Brig. Otema who claimed the beret was a UPDF military attire.
The group interacted with the party president Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert aka Bobi Wine who has just returned from a Human rights summit in Nairobi.
“Each one of them has a terrible story of abduction and torture before they ended up at Kitalya. I am delighted that despite the challenges and tribulations they endured, they are still committed to the struggle for freedom and democracy. We shall overcome,” Bobi said in a Thursday tweet.
