Bobi Wine:18 month old baby under house arrest ‘safely evacuated’
“I’m glad to inform the world that the baby was evacuated yesterday when my lawyers were very briefly allowed to come in,” he stated.
The popstar-turned-politician, who was the primary opposition frontrunner in the governmental elections on the 14th, had previously today tweeted he was stuck at your home with no food.
“Day Six under house arrest and we’re still stuck with an 18 months old baby who had paid a visit to her auntie (my wife ) be4 we were raided & besieged. The Dad has been denied access to her. We have run out of food and milk. No one is allowed to leave or come into our compound,” he composed.
Red wine and his spouse Barbara stay under home arrest and states High Court judges will visit them on Monday.
“The High Court of Uganda say that they are going to be coming to our place on Monday… but in the meantime, our house is surrounded by hundreds of soldiers, and they even jumped over the fence and have taken control of our compound,” Red wine informed CNN.
“This detention in my house is illegal, and my lawyers are … saying if there is a case for me and my wife to answer then we should be presented before a competent court,” he included.
“But because Gen. Museveni is aware that he lost this election, flat — that’s why I am being kept under illegal detention, and I am not allowed to meet with my family, I’m not allowed to meet my doctor, and all my lawyers have been [stopped] from meeting me,” he stated.
Red wine states he has a statement revealing that the results revealed by the electoral commission are incorrect. Videos likewise exist revealing the military taking tallies and packing them in boxes and requiring Ugandans to elect Museveni at gunpoint, he stated.
Red wine has actually disappointed these videos openly and CNN was unable to individually validate this info.
“Even if the internet was blacked out and General Museveni ensured that the election was carried out in the dark, and even if the United States and the European [were] blocked from this election, we were able to obtain outstanding and very, very strong evidence,” Red wine stated.
Museveni’s senior press secretary, Don Wanyama, stated on Saturday that Red wine has no proof vote rigging happened.
“Uganda has processes. Evidence of rigging is tabled before the courts, not CNN,” he included.
When inquired about Red wine’s continued home arrest, Wanyama stated to speak with Uganda’s security companies.
A Ugandan authorities representative informed CNN that “This matter is before the High Court in Kampala. Kindly wait for the outcome. Thanks.”
Given that he took power following a guerrilla resist the federal government, Uganda has actually worked carefully with succeeding United States administrations.
Nevertheless the relationship now threatens to turn sour after duplicated cautions from senior United States political leaders about human rights abuses.
“General Museveni does not want any international scrutiny,” Red wine informed Anderson. “He does not want any human rights claims. When the United States is sponsoring the military, that is an okay thing, but when they call into account Uganda’s human rights, he does not want to hear that.”
Human rights groups and opposition prospects frequently implicate the security forces of abuse and blurring the line in between military and authorities enforcement.
” All the state institutions are being taken overtaken by General Museveni. The police, the military, the media, every state institution including the courts of law,” stated Red wine. “No institution is independent… Everything begins and ends with General Museveni. Because it is his orders that work in Uganda, and not the law.”
