The NUP presidential candidate Hon Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu has lashed out to president Museveni after being arrested in Kalangala Islands earlier today.
The arrest also so other Bobi Wine campaign team arrested , it also sparked off social media trends calling for his release before he was dropped at his house in Magere.
He narrates :
Today yet again, Museveni’s regime of blood and national shame attacked us in Kalangala! As soon as we landed on the islands for our campaign, we found lots of military police, regular UPDF and police officers who were deployed to arrest us on arrival!
As soon as we arrived, they started arresting our people one by one. All our security team members were arrested, then the media team, and then the team close to me, including Nubian Li, Dan Magic and Eddy Mutwe. Journalists too were arrested. Eventually, they also arrested me and pushed me into a ‘mobile prison’, which was teargassed! They drove me to a military chopper which was pre-arranged! These cowards separated me from my team and flew me to Kololo airstrip where the police put me in a police truck and drove me to Magere.
Our legal team has already embarked on the process of securing freedom for our people!
While Museveni is campaigning, he is determined to block us from campaigning everywhere. How shameless! How cowardly! My message to all of you Ugandans is, let us all keep keeping on. Let us not give up. Let us keep praying. Let us keep working hard. The present trials and tribulations are preparing for us a massive victory against one of the world’s most brutal war-lords! Museveni will soon be history! Uganda will be free.
