The National Unity Platform leader, Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has remained busy with foreign trips dominating most of his activities.
For about a year now, two NUP legislators, Mohamed Ssegirinya and Allan Sewanyana have been on remand at Kigo Prison.
Other NUP stalwarts have also remained on detention for allegedly committing various crimes around the country.
Lydia Sewanyana, the wife to MP Sewanyana, says is tired of cold nights, and living a lonely life.
“For a year now, Bobi Wine has only visited my husband MP Sewanyana and his colleague MP Ssegirinya twice, that’s in October 2021 and May 2022,” Lydia Sewanyana said.
She faulted NUP principal, Bobi Wine for only focusing on making money overseas and abandoning their husbands to rot in Prison.
She wondered why Bobi Wine has remained quite busy on money making activities than focusing on how to engage with the State and Court to have their husbands freed.
“Because there is nothing for Bobi Wine to gain from us, he is even organizing concerts to raise money for people in Dubai. How about us with children and husbands in prison, who can hardly make ends meet,”She Lydia.
The mother of MP Ssegirinya, has also been seen desperately knocking to various top government officials including Speaker of Parliament, and Justice Minister, Norbert Mao among others to have her son freed.
In one of her petitions, the old woman blamed Bobi Wine for not working hard to have their children freed from prison.
Millian Mushabe, another NUP mobilizer faulted MPs Lewis Rubongoya and Joel Ssenyoyi for equally abandoning their supporters in Prison.
“What logical explanation can NUP top leaders give for abandoning their colleagues in Prison? They are only attending parties and traveling abroad, yet they can’t do much to have their colleagues freed,” Mushabe questioned.
On Monday, the Buganda Road Chief Magistrates Court dismissed the charge of inciting violence by staging a protest on March 22 2021 at Mini-Price in Kampala.
The Buganda Road Chief Magistrates Court presided over by HW Gladys Kamasanyu acquitted MP Ssegirinya on grounds that there was no sufficient evidence to pin him.
“It is actually after police intervened that Ssegirinya’s procession became rowdy. The case is accordingly dismissed,”Kamasanyu ruled.
