Campaign crew members of the National Unity Platform party under custody at Masaka military barracks are undergoing the worst form of torture according to reports we have reliably retrieved from security sources.
“I am not speaking to you as an officer. I am speaking as a remnant of Nambi and Kintu. This seems to be an attack on Baganda though it’s not yet official,” the soldier reveals. “They are being tortured for wanting to overthrow a dynasty. I asked one of my colleagues who was enjoying the beating. He told me he loves to see Baganda people in agony,” the soldier further adds.
“Sometimes this is too much for us to handle. We have prominent names in the army. People like Katumba Wamala, Elly Kayanja and the likes. But they are all quiet,” one soldier intimates. “What I’m seeing is a genocide on our people. But I have nothing to do. I am just one person. What can I do with one gun?,” he further told this reporter.
During the arrest of the Masaka legislator and NUP Deputy for central region, Hon. Mathias Mpuuga, the Regional Police Commander, Abaine Enock was heard issuing sectarian statements. “Teera ogu Omuganda,” which translates to ‘beat up those Baganda people’. Abaine is said to he a sworn hater of the people of Buganda. His fellow police officers indeed attest to that. “When he got a canister gun and fired at NTV’s Ali Mivule. He was doing it because of his hate for the Baganda people,” a police officer says. “Even at the police station, he downplays the Baganda police officers. He keeps saying that a Muganda like Bobi Wine can never lead this country. He says they will do all possible including killing to ensure that no Muganda leads Uganda,” the police officer adds.
In fact on that very day, Abaine individually shot at the Ghetto TV journalist Ashraf Kasirye and bragges about doing that. “Let me see what these Baganda people will do to me,” he bragged. “I hate these people with all passion,” he told his junior officers who were pleading with him to spare NTV’s Ali Mivule.
Apprently, a section of journalists in Masaka have vowed to boycott all security events if the tribalistic Abaine remains RPC. “We will never cover police events till Abaine leaves our region,” one journalist said. “We have petitioned the IGP to transfer this shameless criminal in uniform,” he adds.
