Joseph Lubega who has won the World Boxing Council International light heavyweight title led a group of boxers in Uganda to join Hon Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine to his then newly formed National Unity Platform (NUP) party earlier this year.
His abduction comes just moments after another boxer who has been in state custody since December 12 was freed last night from Kitalya. Justin Juuko also a former world champion was recently arrested and he spent over 3 weeks missing until a spirited legal fight ensued from his lawyers.
He was released yesterday to his lawyers and family. It should be noted that yesterday, President Museveni admitted and confirmed that Zebra Ssenyange aka Mando was killed by Uganda Security forces.
Bobi Wine is yet to react at the whereabout of his friend Joey Lubega.
