On January 26, Uganda marked 36 years since the NRM assumed power.

Bobi Wine: I've looked under my bed, in my closet... and failed to find the rule of law that NRM promised.

Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine, the head of the National Unity Platform (NUP), has said it is sad that the regime has not kept its promise to Ugandans when it promised to establish democracy and uphold the rule of law shortly after taking power in 1986.

The arrest of critical writer Kakwenza Rukirabashaija, who was allegedly “kidnapped” in Kitalya prison and carried away in a tinted double-cabin pick-up moments after being granted bail, prompted Kyagulanyi’s remarks. Kakwenza was eventually released the day before yesterday.

“The NRA regime will be commemorating the day they took control of our country with the gun, promising democracy and the rule of law,” Kyagulanyi stated. We must all recognize the catastrophe that our country is facing and resolve to rid ourselves of the insurgents once and for all.”

A memorial service organized by members of the NUP to pray for those slain during the 1981-86 NRA bush war was prevented by police in Nakaseke area yesterday.

The service was supposed to take place at Kikamulo Sub-County headquarters, near a memorial to the independence warriors, but security personnel barred the road.
