Bobi speaks out on distorted Mwesigwa report on torture



Bobi’s statement;

The criminal, shameless military regime is at it again!

My attention has been drawn to a ridiculous video involving the UPDF spokesperson, Felix Kulayije and one of the latest victims of torture Mwesigwa Eric!

In the scandalous video, the victim accompanied by Kulayije while at Mbuya Army Barracks claims that the torture wounds he bears were not inflicted on him by UPDF but rather by NUP!!! Can you imagine?!

This same person in his complaint to Uganda Human Rights Commission is on record saying he was abducted by armed security personnel and gravely tortured. He also made a report at Kabalagala Police and stated that since he returned from the torture chambers, unknown people had been following him.

I wish to state that this is an amateurish attempt by the UPDF to spin the unfortunate torture of a citizen by the army, which confirms that indeed the torture meted out on Mwesigwa and others like him is sanctioned by the UPDF and other security agencies.

I am sure no body in Uganda can fall for this nonsense. They know so well has Museveni’s regime of blood came through violence and deception, and continues to hold onto power using the same tools.

This is their standard behaviour! When Yasin Kawuma was shot dead in Arua, the UPDF claimed that the murder was carried out by our group. To date they have never arrested or prosecuted anybody. The country is also aware of the contradictory statements that former President of NUP Mzee Kibalama made in court after meeting the Chief of Defense Forces. Recently when they abducted and raped comrade Marinos, they quickly called a press conference and downplayed the heinous crimes. They did the same for Kakenza, Masereka, etc. The examples are endless.

There are some comrades who they tried to conscript into these kinds of games after torturing them, and when they refused, they threatened to kill them. Many of them are in exile!

We have also noted the empty claims that NUP abducts its own supporters using drones. Fortunately, vigilant Ugandans have always recorded videos of most of these abductions involving armed security men and everytime there have been such incidents, majority of the victims have been arraigned in court after building pressure through applications to court by our lawyers and the public. Examples are many- Katto Hussein Gaza, Motiv Kasaga, Bobi Young, Jamushid Kavuma, among many others. Only yesterday, they abducted another man right outside Buganda Road Court. Was that NUP in action???

I challenge Kulayije and his fellow conspirators to produce the CCTV footage of Mwesigwa ‘s abduction!

We hope that the blatant lies by the UPDF spokesperson are motivated by embarrassment, and that moving forward, they will stop abducting and torturing citizens.

To you all Ugandans, I want to assure you that the real reason why they would engage in these shameful, panicky gimmicks is because they fear sanctions and prosecution, which will certainly come. They would rather torture people, but do everything possible for the world not to know. Too late for them, the evidence of their crimes is available to the whole world.

Sad; NUP abducted Councillor held incommunicado for 25 days now



Today marks 25 days since this comrade Muwanga Owen Martin was abducted by the military! He remains under incommunicado detention. He is an elected Councillor in Kyengera, and impassioned activist. Ironically, he was taken away by heavily armed operatives moving in a drone UAL 119V as he returned home after the screening of the Documentary about the gross violations of human rights. Although the police spokesperson admitted that he is in the custody of ‘security’, he has neither been produced in court. His family, lawyers, doctors, and friends have all been denied access to him. Today, our legal team will be asking court to issue a Habeas Corpus order for his release. Very sad state of affairs! #BringBackOurPeople

Bobi Wine outraged by rampant poverty in Oyam



President Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert aka Bobi Wine was today outraged by the obscene poverty in Oyam District and Northern Uganda at large.

Bobi had gone to drum up for support for the NUP candidate Daniel Okello who is tussling it out with four other candidates.

In his message, Bobi expressed his disgust at the NRM regime which he says has impoverished the people of Northern Uganda.

Bobi Wine statement;

We spent the day in Oyam North Constituency preaching the message of liberation to our people there! The population in Northern Uganda has been deliberately impoverished and subdued. The levels of poverty are unbelievable. It was very painful seeing old people asking us if we moved with some food because they are starving! The NRM machinery only comes around during elections. It is then that these people get to see the “government” through the long military convoys driving around regime officials! It is during elections that these people are bribed with as little as 500 Uganda shillings and given new empty promises.

Well, we made several stop-overs around the constituency with our comrade Daniel Okello, and yet again reminded these people about the extent of the problem our country faces and everyone’s duty to deliver our nation from this mess. I am grateful to our people for the overwhelming reception, despite all the intimidation and military deployment everywhere! Uganda will be free!

The Constitutional Court will today begin re-hearing the 2022 impeachment case of Mityana Municipality Member of Parliament (MP), Francis Zaake.

Zaake petitioned the Constitutional Court seeking its declaration to, among other things; overturn his controversial removal from the position of commissioner of parliament for allegedly insulting Speaker Anita Among on social media.

This was after Zaake and his lawyer complained of a delayed judgment on June 5 before the court’s administrator Justice Geoffrey Kiryabiwre who informed them that court suffered manpower shortage on quorum following the promotion of Justice Steven Musota to the Supreme Court.

Justice Musota was among the five justices who heard Zaake’s petition in June 2022.

Other justices are; Catherine Bamugemereire, Christopher Izama Madrama, Muzamiru Mutangula Kibeedi, and Irene Mulyagonja.

In his petition, Zaake details the events that took place prior to his alleged removal.

He also claims that each member of the parliament’s committee on Rules, Privileges, and Discipline, who participated in his removal, received a kick-back of Shs6 million.

A total of 155 MPs voted to remove Zaake from the position after being found guilty of disparaging the speaker.
