Military operatives raided Bobiwine’s home last night, the presidential candidate revealed this morning.
“The army has today morning raided my home, arrested all my security guards and anyone they could see around my premises. No reason for the arrest was given. Such acts of impunity are all kicks of a dying horse,” Bobiwine revealed through social media.
The National Unity Platform president was forced to cut short his interview with Royal Media’s Hot 96 radio as the military raided his home in Magele.
Bobiwine told Hot 96 FM that the military was attempting to break into his compound and his security team was being assaulted.
“So I am sorry even right now as we speak, we are being raided by the military. I have to end the interview because I can see soldiers beating up my security guards. I have to go down and give it attention,” he said.
Bobiwine also revealed that one of his personal assistants was arrested by operatives in the dead of the night.
“One of my personal assistants, David Bwanika’s home was raided in the night and broken into was violently arrested by the army and driven to an unknown destination. I know they will do more of such and worse but we shall not give up,” he tweeted.
Police is yet to issue a statement on both of these incidences.
It is just one day to the polling day as approximately 18 million Ugandan voters are expected to cast their ballots in the presidential election and chose their candidates.
