DP Demands Report on Rwenzori Attacks

DP Secretary General, erectile http://danceexchange.org/wp-admin/includes/ms-admin-filters.php Mathias Nsubuga Birekeraawo told journalists at the party headquarters in a weekly press briefing on Tuesday that Mukwenda’s arrest was politically motivated.

“On the night of July 5, when people attacked security installations in the districts of Kasese, Bundibugyo and Ntoroko, it so happened that the police station in Ntoroko is near Mukwenda’s home. As people were scampering for safety, one of the victims who was bleeding after being shot fell in Mukwenda’s compound,” said Nsubuga.

The DP District chairman was arrrested to help in investigations before being remanded.


Nsubuga noted the authorities have further gone on to parade Mukwenda before the Court Martial “despite him having never joined the army or being found in possession of any arms.”

He added: “Trying a typical civilian in an army court is an act of human rights violation. It is clearly known that once the Court Martial gives its ruling, the punishment commences immediately. We strongly condemn this act and we will continue to fight against any inhuman act in this country.”

Nsubuga further blamed government for refusing to issue a detailed report on circumstances under which 92 people died in the Rwenzori unrest.

Government blamed the attacks on tribalism and divisve politics practiced by Rwenzori cultural leaders.

Rwenzururu kingdom officials recently appeared before the UPDF General Court Martial for allegedly engaging in attacks on defence installations.

Some of the suspects include Deputy Prime Minister, Yeremia Mutooro, Veteran Affairs Minister Misairi Mukwenda and Ntoroko District Local Government Information Officer Ibrahim Baluku Sahul, a lecturer Uganda Pentecostal University (UPU) in Fort Portal.
