Background

Presidential aspirant Bobi Wine was arrested this week during his campaign rally in Luuka and his being subjected to brutality in broad daylight is what triggered spontaneous civil uprisings across the country.

A number of significant protests demanding for his release have followed, calling for the end of regime brutality in Kampala and all other surrounding districts.

The regime’s reluctance to respect human rights and to protect its people has continued to undermine the constitutional mandate including; freedom from arbitrary deprivation
of life, freedom from torture and other cruel
inhuman or degrading treatment.

Ugandans are currently fighting for a free nation where citizens equally enjoy freedom and social justice.
