That’s not the democracy we fought for, Free Bobi Wine – Minister Namuganza

Minister Namuganza

Minister Percis Namuganza has this afternoon gone against all odds and condemned the manner into which fellow lawmakers were arrested and tortured in the West Nile town of Arua.

Namuganza says though the detained leaders might have made a blander, but they didn’t deserve to get tortured to near death.

“Being NRM doesn’t mean I support this, I condemn this acts of brutalizing Ugandans, and this is not democracy that we fought for in this case I stand with Bobi wine and his family.” Namuganza noted.

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 others 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.
