Bobi Wine saddened by violence that occurred following his arrest
National Unity Platform (NUP) presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi revealed that he is greatly saddened and disturbed by the violence that occurred following his arrest and detention at Nalufenya in Jinja district.
Business in Kampala came to a halt for three days as members of the public protested against his arrest, with property worth millions of shillings destroyed and dozens of people killed.
“Last evening after reaching home, I watched what has happened for the past three days while I was illegally detained at Nalufenya. My thoughts are with those families that lost loved ones. I send my deepest condolences to all of them, and wish those who are wounded a quick recovery,” he stated.
He revealed that he personally knows two people who died in the riots and can only imagine the grief their families are going through now.
“In fact, I learnt last night that two of the dead were personally known to me and were good friends, including a young man who was at a furniture shop and lost his life when soldiers shot directly into his workplace. He died instantly,” Bobi Wine stated.
Bobi Wine has vowed to continue his campaign journey as he seeks support to unseat President Museveni in the January 2021 elections.
