“You convicted innocent soldiers, Col Namanya is the real tormentor” Bobi Wine on battering journalists


KAMPALA– The National Unity Platform NUP Principal Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine has laughed at the army for convicting wrong people.

Bobi Wine accuses Lt Col Namanya Napoleone Kyabihende, the Director Operations Military Police and formerly from SFC.

According to Kyagulanyi, Kyabihende used to head Museveni’s inner security circle ading that he was named in the March 16th 2010 Kasubi tombs shooting in which three people dead and five injured.

Kyagulanyi adds that Kyabihende also commanded the military interception on NUP supporters in Busega on 27th December 2020 as they rushed Ashraf Kasirye to hospital after he was shot on the head during our campaign in Masaka.

“In Busega, as we pleaded to be allowed to rush Ashraf to hospital, Napoleon and his men, driving a military police truck run over our comrade Frank Senteza and killed him. Some of our comrades were brutally beaten and are still nursing wounds” he noted.

Bobi Wine adds that “he commanded the militarily raid on my campaign team in Kalangala Island on 30th December 2020, an ambush which saw over 100 of our comrades arrested and tortured. Most of them are still languishing in Kitarya prison”.

On Wednesday February 17th 2021, a group soldiers beat up and badly injured journalists and elected leaders on top of smashing and vandalising their vehicles at the UN Human Rights office.

This is when the NUP Principal had gone to deliver a petition against the ongoing Human Rights violations in Uganda.

“Namanya personally hit NTV’s John Cliff Wamala on the head, causing a deep wound” he added.

According to NUP, when the military paraded soldiers that they claim to have beaten journalists, they wondered why Namanya never surfaced in the conviction list.

“This should teach everyone that in Uganda today, some people commit crimes while others pay for the crimes
