Members of Parliament were yesterday on Tuesday blocked from accessing a safe house in Kyengera, which is allegedly being used by the Internal Security Organisation (ISO) to torture people. Current affairs analyst, Andrew Mwenda has today come out to claim that the visited premises belong to his uncle.
Mwenda says the house is a residential home of his uncle whom he did not identify.
“Yesterday Bobi Wine led a group of Members of Parliament and journalists to my uncle’s claiming it is a safe house,” reads Mwenda’s post on twitter.
He added, “I know government of Uganda has safe houses where security forces torture people but my uncle’s is not one of them. He lives in it. Can these politicians get facts right?”
The Chairperson of the Parliamentary Committee on Human Rights Nantume Egunyu Nantume, yesterday told journalists that one of the soldiers guarding the facility said to them that they don’t open for “whoever goes there.”
Such a statement puts Mwenda’s claim in question but as Matooke Republic we shall keep you updated.
