Mityana Municipality legislator Francis Zaake has been referred to Nsambya hospital after he allegedly failed to respond to the treatment administered at Naguru hospital.
Jinja East Municipality lawmaker Paul Mwiru while addressing the media at people power office in Kamwokya said MP Zaake is unable to see after he was reportedly sprayed with an unknown chemical in the eyes and allegedly tortured.
Zaake was arrested on April 19th 2020 for distributing food to vulnerable people and detained at Mityana police station from where he was taken to the Special Investigations Unit in Kireka.
However, The People Power group has demanded his unconditional release and tasked government to take action against the NRM legislators who have equally defied the President’s directives on social distancing and gathered huge numbers of people for food distribution.
Kyadondo East MP, the people Power leader Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu has listed some of them as; Kyotera County MP Kyeyune Haruna Kasolo, Ssembabule MP Hanifa Kawoya and Wakiso district Woman MP Rosemary Sseninde.
