Being a Human Rights Activist in Uganda is un-lawful in Uganda right now!
Justice is a trickey thing for the UPF and IGP Kale Kayihura, what you say?
Ladies and gentlemen don’t do this and let the police know:
“I was arrested and charged armed robbery as I was found speaking to the youth of Namutumba district”.
That what he said himself, and I believe him, people has been kidnapped for wearing the wrong shirt this year. So Allan Kitonsa Ssava continue your work and struggle. You have been unjustified by the law enforcement in the country. But we who look and want accountability in the country! For you and all the other ones who speaks to empower the youth!
Finally is hespeaking to the world. After he was unjustly taken to custody by security organization earlier this week. Norman Thumuhimbise of the Jobless Brotherhood is being punished for speaking the truth and telling stories of youth who just want to work and not be unemployed anymore in Uganda. For that and for using peaceful tools to campaign for the cause that he is involved in. The Police and Security Organizations has done him and other oppositition people has also gotten this actions against them. And the world should take notice and give the regime a little of piece of mind. Instead it looks like it close it eyes shut because its in the wrong zip-code. If the giant media houses doesn’t care! I do.
One last thing:
The saddest thing is that he has to REPORT AGAIN to the KAMPALA METROPOLIAN POLICE!! After he has been unlawfully detained by people serving the security agencies and even the police. They interrogated him unlawfully and dumped him! Still has now to go back to the police and report himself. That can’t be just and lawful behaviour of the Police in the State of Uganda! Peace.
This is the press release on the 26th of August from Freedom House:
In response to the apparent abduction and detention of Ugandan youth activist Norman Tumuhimbise on August 19, Freedom House issued the following statement:
