The National Unity Platform party president Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert aka Bobi Wine has expressed his gratitude towards Ugandans for their unrelenting efforts to exert pressure on the regime so that all political prisoners regain their freedom. His gratification remarks comes just moments after his aides, Nubian Li, Eddie Mutwe, Dan Magic and 16 others have got bail at the general court martial after six months on remand at Kitalya prison.
We are very delighted to reconnect with all our comrades who have been released today from illegal detention. After six months of torture, imprisonment and humiliation, the General Court Martial today released 18 of those they were still holding- prominent amongst them Nubian Li, Eddie Mutwe, Dan Magic, Kampala Lookman, Bobi Young, Kivumbi Achleo, and others. Their release on bail was hinged on very tough conditions, including an order for them not to go beyond Kampala and Wakiso without the court’s permission.
We are very grateful to all Ugandans- home and abroad who have raised their voices demanding for these comrades’ release. I thank the religious leaders, traditional leaders, political leaders and all ordinary citizens who have done everything to demand for the release of these people. We must now not relent but continue to struggle until all the hundreds of our people are freed unconditionally. We must not relent until Gen. Museveni’s criminal regime is brought to account for all the atrocities they continue to commit on the people of Uganda!
We shall overcome!
