Bobi Wine’s ordeal recount goes viral


Bobi Wine’s ordeal recount goes viral

Disabled; Bobi Wine, was a normal person before he was inflicted with horrendous acts by SFC soldiers

Kyaddondo East Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has scripted an emotion-filled account on his Facebook Page of the torture and abuses that were committed by the President Yoweri Museveni’s Special Forces Command (SFC) on August 13, on the last day of the Arua by-election campaign.

By the time of publishing this post, Bobi Wine’s lengthy post had already been shared by over 10,000 times, and almost the same number of comments. Bobi’s account has also triggered several independent posts with most people expressing shock at what the SFC soldiers did, while others expressed support for him to stay the course and ensure he takes forwards what they call the liberation of Uganda.

A self-professed admirer of the late South African hero Nelson Mandela, Bobi Wine has perhaps pulled a chapter from Mandela’s book by stating that he does not wish to see President Museveni nor his tormentors – the SFC soldiers go through similar dehumanising treatment, as he was.

He wrote: “I will never forget the atmosphere in that room- people started crying upon setting eyes on me. At that point, At least it captured in part, the state in which they found me. As the government agency mandated to fight human rights violations, I am eagerly waiting to see what actions they will take to ensure that no Ugandan is taken through this ever again. Not even President Museveni. I cannot wish what happened to me upon anyone. Not even those soldiers who violated me as if they were beasts.

Bobi Wine is currently in the United States where he arrived last weekend on a trip to be examined and possibly treated for the injuries he suffered.

His colleague and Mityana Municipality MP Francis Zaake was also allowed to leave the country yesterday September 3, 2018 after he was examined by government doctors.

Meanwhile the two youthful MPs are part of the group of 32 politicians and ordinary people who were charged with treason in Arua for allegedly stoning one of the escort vehicles of President Yoweri Museveni on August 13, in Arua. All those that were charged with treason have since been granted bail.
