The security officials who snatched Ugandan main opposition leader BobiWine at Kampala Airport yesterday have reportedly placed him under house arrest at his compound under the instruction of President Yoweri Museveni.
Bobiwine revealed the details of his capture on his official X account where he said visitors were being barred to visit his house.
“They have increased military and police deployment all around our home and blocked our visitors from coming in. Soldiers have broken part of our fence and forced their way into part of our compound to prevent me from leaving. Museveni must know that his incompetent, criminal regime will soon collapse, no matter what he does!”
Reports have also immerged that the US Mission in Uganda is lodging tracking mechanism around his arrest.
“The United States is tracking the concerning reports that opposition leader BobiWine was taken into custody at Entebbe airport today and has been detained at his home. Reports indicate that opposition supporters were also detained. Respect for freedom of assembly and allowing political parties to operate freely are fundamental values of democratic societies.”
Journalists from different media houses have also suffered brutal action and blockade from regime authorities when they tried to get more information on the matter.
“In the strongest terms possible, I condemn the brutal treatment of journalists from different media houses, by regime operatives today. They were beaten, pepper sprayed, and their gadgets confiscated before many were arrested and taken to Entebbe Police.
“ They were targeted for covering some of the abductions, violent arrests and the manner in which I was arrested at the airport. Like we constantly say, under a criminal regime, everyone is a victim. We must work collectively to redeem motherland from this mess!”
