The Speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon. Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga has directed government through the Ministry of Internal Affairs to produce a list of Ugandans who have been abducted by security agencies. Her directive barely comes weeks after the same was announced by Museveni during a security briefing at State House Entebbe two weeks ago.
On Wednesday during plenary, the incumbent Kawempe North Member of Parliament Al Hajj Latif Ssebaggala raised concerns to the speaker that despite President Museveni’s directive to have the list produced, security agencies have not heeded to the same.
“We have not seen any of the lists presented by government of Ugandans who went missing during the 2021 elections yet the President directed that the names be released within two weeks. We need an explanation from government,” Ssebaggala said.
It is important to note that the same directive was issued by the Commander in Chief of all armed forces, Gen. Yoweri Tibuhaburwa Museveni about two weeks back and no positive response has ever been made.
NUP says over 2000 of their supporters are languishing in the filthy cells of state owned safe houses and jails something the Internal Affairs Minister Jeje Odong came out to refute.
