Kyadondo East Legislator Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine, has challenged police to produce the CCTV footage of the scene where Ritah Nabukenya was knocked by a Boda boda as Police claims.
Addressing Mourners in Kiboga district yesterday, Bobi Wine said Police lied to Ugandans that Nabukenya was involved in a boda boda accident and their car was just in the vicinity to assist rush her to hospital.
“Police killed Ritah (Nabukenya). If they are denying, let them bring CCTV footage to defend their position on this,” Mr. Bobi Wine said.
“People have been killed in such ways and they (police) come out to deny and lie to the people but we are watching. Each and every person who is here is a candidate for death from the regime. I repeat this, (President) Museveni’s regime killed our comrade,” he added.
Despite demands to have Police CCTV footage of Nabukenya’s accident released, Last evening police spokesperson Fred Enanga said the CCTV Camera at the scene in Nakawa Division was faulty at the time of the accident.
“At the time of the incident, the network of the CCTV camera at that place was off and it did not have power until 10 pm in the night. We are, however, still assessing the incident to see if we can retrieve some information from the cameras close to it. When we get the footage, I will share it with you,” Mr. Enanga narrated.
Eyewitnesses at the scene insist that Nabukenya was knocked dead by a Police Patrol car registration number UP 4841 while traveling on a motorcycle registration number UEY 675P adding that Nabukenya fell down and the police vehicle ran over her.
After a few minutes of running after the boda guy without success, the Police patrol came back to the accident scene and then rushed the severely injured Nabukenya Nabukenya where she died upon arrival.
Bobi Wine criticized police for continuously killing People Power Movement supporters and never produces CCTV footage despite claiming they have evidence that clears them of culpability.
And Yesterday in just a space of two days, following a faceoff between People Power activists and police another People Power Movement Supporter identified as Daniel Kyeyune was also shot in the head as they traveled back from Nabukenya’s burial.
