Former Makindye West Member of Parliament Hon. Hajji Hussein Kyanjo has lashed at government over the continued detention of the celebrated Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Hon. Kyagulanyi Robert Ssentamu.
Speaking while appearing on NBS TV, Kyanjo said that the detention and torture is being politically motivated and this has no doubt rubbished the relationship between the Head of State and the citizens
Kyanjo also says that if the lawmaker committed crimes as alleged by the State, it’s wise to allow him access better medication then get convicted later.
“It’s immoral for the president to weigh legalities on the life of Bobi Wine and Zaake, these are prominent people who will not run away. Take them to get treatment first and then you can convict them.” He said.
Kyagulanyi is among the 34 people arrested in Arua following the ugly events of Monday 13th August 2018 as the campaigns came to a close, a crowd in an procession is alleged to have pelted stones at the convoy of H.E the President breaking the rear glass window of one of the cars and later one person was shot dead in this whole fracas.
Among the other arrested is the newly elected Arua Municipality lawmaker Hon. Kassiano Wadir, Jinja East MP Hon. Paul Mweru, Hon. Gerald Karuhanga (Ntungamo municipality), Hon. Francis Zaake (Mityana), former MP Mike Mabike, Activist Kasule Ismail among others and all these are facing treason charges.
