MP-elect Wadri, 35 others charged with treason

Arua municipality MP-elect Kassiano Wadri has today been charged with treason and remanded to Gulu Main Prison until August 30. 

Wadri who won the Arua municipality seat from prison after being arrested on Monday evening appeared before the Chief Magistrate's Court in Gulu together with MPs Gerald Karuhanga, Paul Mwiru and 33 other suspects.

Prosecution accuses the suspects of stoning the president's motorcade with the intention of harming the president on Monday evening. 

The suspects have been remanded to Gulu Main Prison until August 30

Magistrate Francis Matenga Dawa remanded the suspects but directed that the MPs be allowed to access to medical treatment from a facility of their choice.

This was after the suspects' lawyer Medard Sseggona told court that the suspects were tortured and are in need of medical attention. 

In a related development, Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi and Mityana municipality MP Francis Zaake did not appear in the General Court Martial in Gulu as earlier anticipated.

Lawyers and family members claimed they were denied access to the legislators. It's highly likely that the MPs will not appear in court today as the army court officials led by Lt Gen Andrew Gutti only set off for Gulu today morning. 

Kyagulanyi whose driver Yasin Kawuma was shot dead in Arua and Zaake were arrested with several other suspects on Monday and Tuesday.

Next lie : they will say that Bobi Wine is still in Gulu as soon as his wife shows up to see him in Makindye.

Implication : they tortured him so bad , they must hide him from the public.

Obvious lie: that somebody from the opposition can carry two SMGs in his Hotel room when the President and all his spy machine is in the same town.

CONCLUSION ;there was a time when H.E. Super Glue was an expert on telling a perfect lie. That time is behind him.

Sad !!!

The best man won the election despite all that was thrown at him.

This tells you that you cannot hoodwink the people of Arua with "nickels". These people have integrity, they have had integrity all the time albeit interrupted by Idi Amin's regime.

Still they have held their cards close to their chest. Aluuta continua; only time will tell. And Moses Ali is always the "lap dog" remember when he was detailed to arrest Segusa on his botched return from London?

And why shift the "theatre of operation" to Gulu instead of Arua; it smacks of trying to "collude the Acholi" into this brouhaha. The Acholis don't need blood on their doorstep, full stop; take the case to Kampala if you dare!

Quoting Wooden K.:
Hello Uganda , here we go again .

They lied about the stoning of H.E. Super Glue`s car.

... They lied that Bobi Wine was first taken to a Military hospital in Gulu
There is no Military Hospital in Gulu.

They lied that relatives will vist Bobi Wine in his Gulu. She was never allowed to .

They now claim that Wine has been airlifted to Makindye without meeting his wife.

In other words Wooden, it is savagery and foolishness of the century. These soulless, M7's useful idiots may run around with Bobi Wine and Zaake, but they cannot hide.

The whole, wide, world is watching in dismay.
