“I spent last night detained in a cell somewhere in Busia town. I don’t know what police station I am detained in. My political assistant Rugumayo Ka Kusemererwa and I were picked from my car by a gang of armed officers in Busia. We were dumped into holding cells without any charges. No statements were taken from us. I am worried about the whereabouts of my driver and my campaign photographer. They were arrested ahead of the two of us but are not detained in our (unknown) detention facility. What is our crime? Can somebody tell me. They did not even isolate us in isolation or quarantine holding facilities. We are in detention cells. Again, what is our crime? Is it a crime to be a Ugandan in Uganda? Third time, what is our crime?” she posted
