Kampala Lord Major has made it clear why he is currently in celebratory mood after news broke that former police boss Kale Kayihura was sanctioned by the US government.
“With the impunity we’re fighting in this country, why would I stand with Kayihura in these material times when we’ve tried our best to handle such issues before? I’m one of the lawyers who dragged Kayihura to court and we were told we were wasting time,” Lukwago said.
Lukwago said that Kayihura must be punished for the command responsibility that unleashed terror on Ugandans.
“If Kayihura tortured Ugandans and now by the grace of God there is a silver lining on the dark cloud, why not celebrate?” he said.
He recalled his unforgettable incident during Kayihura’s reign that left him crying.
“During his reign, our private parts were squeezed… he had us cry, restricted our movements. Which prison haven’t we been detained in? Unknown gazetted houses? He can’t say he was acting on orders from ‘above’. He has to own up,” Lukwago stated.
