Today, Ugandans who have been in Safe House custody following abductions manned by security operatives and hit squads have addressed parliament.

The people gave tear triggering testimonies of the horrors they faced while in custody. Their confessions follow a parliamentary probe on the Security Minister, Gen. Elly Tumwiine who succumbed and agreed to the existence of Safe Houses around the country. Victims told parliament that they were forced into interrogation points and tortured to accept crimes they did not commit.

On many counts, the victims are forced into cold water tanks where they be for 24 hours before being whipped with electric wires. They further said that they were beaten by masked men who were covered with scarfs.

In another testimony, one of the victims told parliament that he was forced to eat his own human waste and drink his urine just to quench his thirst as one of the ISO men oathed to never offer him even a drop of water till he pinned one of the government officials to be a potential sponsor of rebel activities against Museveni.

The Human Rights Committee of Parliament is currently investigating the circumstances under which people have been arrested and illegally detained. The Deputy speaker, Jacob Oulanyah granted MPs a right to access these detention facilities though the Security Minister vowed to block any legislator that dares to lay foot anywhere close to these centres.
