Earlier, the National Unity Platform presidential candidate spoke out on impending sanctions of Ugandan security officials.
“They torture and murder our people with impunity. They wear pride as a necklace and violence as a garment. “What can you do to us?”, they ask the citizens whom they have subdued and crushed,” he said.
“Unknown to them, the world is watching! Yes, they tower above all institutions in Uganda, but you never know where justice will come from.”
This was after a US representative asked the administration to punish security officials who are accused of violating human rights.
“Let’s continue pushing. Let’s continue working. As we rise to reclaim our country, we are grateful to all friends of Uganda who are helping out in every way,” Bobi noted.
He added: “Eventually, the victims of oppression will get justice.”
