Francis Zaake has been granted police bond for a month

The duo was detained at Kiruddu hospital and placed under the guard of Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI). Kyagulanyi was later cleared by the medical board and police to travel to the US for treatment but Zaake wasn’t cleared to travel. 

Zaake and Kyagulanyi were among the 33 suspects arrested in Arua on allegations of stoning President Yoweri Museveni’s convoy on August 13.

The suspects were allegedly tortured during arrest and whilst in detention with Kyagulanyi and Zaake needing further treatment abroad. The suspects now known as Arua33, except for Zaake were charged with treason and are out on bail.

M7 has got himself into a really deep pit of S. It is, for now, hard to figure out how he can escape out of it.

Imagine how much energy and resources they used to carry out the operation, just to get somebody charged which they could have done even without zake

I saw police lamentation elsewhere that Mr.Zaake refused to sign the police bond upon his release.

He did not refuse to sign for his temporary freedom. He just couldn't do it. The criminal police and the tribal SFC outfit crashed his hands during the assault in Arua.

He couldn't even use the 'kinkuumu' since his 'binkuumu' were electrocuted off his fngers, some of which were seared to the bone during the torture.

Why are Ugandans letting Museveni treat the as if they are unwanted migrants in their own country?

How can Ugandan tribal leaders maintain the divisive tribalistic system without which Museveni won't have a place in the country &while they continue to turn blind eyes-deaf ears to sufferings of their own people at the hands of a man Ugandans were kind enough to give shelter to, yet today, it's him, migrant Museveni alone who has a say in the country?

How can Ugandans watch their own, even sick/woulded be chased through out the country by Museveni while our people ensure tax money that the migrant controls in a country he has nothing to do in?

Why are Ugandans keeping Museveni in power when just their UNITY will definitively throw Museveni out of the country?

Why is keeping Museveni safer for Ugandans than UNITY to Reforme the Republic or Independent Tribal States?

No gwok,

It's Ugandans in a deep pit of S because they are the ones keeping Museveni in power though the divisive tribalistic system & letting him molest, arrest, harass, arres them, more so, the demon uses Ugandans against one another to ensure his lifetime chief tribal leader position!

Whether it's tribal leaders in post ensuring the tribalistic system stands firm knowing Ugandan won't get at them, or Ugandans used by Museveni to arrest-teargas-torture one another, it's all adds up to

"Ugandans keeping their common enemy in power"!

This is precisely why the outside world is quiet on what goes on in Uganda!

Once Ugandan tribal leaders stand down & Ugandans UNITE, they will no longer be alone face to Museveni, especially when European-UN forces are in the region & Kenya/Tanzania won't take Musevni in as refugee!

Quoting gwok:

He won't escape out of it. His countdown is on, it's a matter of time.

Anything with a beginning, has an end. Just watch this space.

A serial killers and organized murderer like Mr. M7; who since Mozambique, Luweero, Kasese, etc., is addicted to the smell human blood and dead bodies.

Unless torture is one day visited on him, the man does not give a damn about human suffering or the indignity he is currently inflicting on innocent Ugandans.

In other words, Hon Zaake of this country is just one other biological substance, inconveniencing his life-presidency that must be dealt with.

Eish!

Sorry Lakwena, I chuckled and I should not because it's no laughing matter.

You are breathing fire, and that's the right thing to do under the circumstances.
