KAMPALA- The National Unity Platform Presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine has come out to clarify that his brother Nubian Li, Eddy Mutwe and others on his campaign team are still in Police cells.
Kyagulanyi was also arrested and airlifted to his Magere home amidst tight security on accusation of holding mass rallies exceeding 200 people as stipulated by the Ministry of Health and the Electoral commission.
The Musician cum Politician now says their legal team is working hard to ensure the team is released.
I can confirm that the comrades Nubian Li, Eddie Mutwe and about 18 others (mostly our security team) are being held incommunicado in a military barracks in Masaka.
As soon as they reached Masaka police station, they were profiled and separated from the rest. We fear that they are being tortured by Brig Sande and his people.
You all remember that hateful man called Brig. Deus Sande who said they can never hand over power! The desperate regime plans to hold some of these comrades until after elections, in the hope that they can weaken us.
All leaders of NUP and candidates at different levels have also been put on notice. Knowing that he can never win us in an election, Museveni hopes to disorganise us by arresting our critical leaders so that he can rig elections with reckless abandon! We are aware of all these plans. The world is watching.
In total breach of the law, lawyers, family members and doctors were denied access to the arrested comrades! Our legal team and other leaders are however still doing their best to get access to these comrades first and foremost, and see how to secure their release.
Finally, we have received information that the comrades detained at Masaka Police Station were tortured last night. Over 40 comrades are still in detention at Kalangala.Gen. Museveni is very desperate, but no level of desperation can save him from the inevitable fall that awaits him. Freedom is coming.
