ATLEAST 118 NUP SUPPORTERS STILL IN POLICE CELLS AFTER THEIR ARREST IN KALANGALA

NUP-40050fbe

Police in Masaka District are yet to find a solution for at least 118 members of the campaign team of the National Unity Platform (NUP) presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine.

Last evening, sources told our reporter that the top security officials were in a crisis meeting to decide on preferable charges against the suspects.

According to the NUP lawyers, all the 118 have been made to make statements on charges of committing an act that is likely to spread an infectious disease, and that the police were still pondering on whether to take them to court or hold them until Monday when they will be formally charged on different counts.

Among those arrested is Bobi Wine’s fellow singer, Ali Bukeni alias Nubian Li, and Eddy Ssebufu aka Eddie Mutwe Bobi Wine’s personal bodyguard among others.

Freelance journalists were also handpicked including Richard Kalema and Doreen Dorothy Nalumansi who were accused of live-streaming the events that preceded Bobi Wine’s arrest.

David Katunda, the District Police Commander said the freelance journalists would not be spared in the arrests, especially when they are not accredited.
