Gov’t scared out of its wits-Winnie Byanyima


Oxfam boss Winnie Byanyima has decried the harassment meted out to her by the Uganda police force.

It started with police blocking Winnie from entering her marital in Kasangati on Saturday after demanding to check all her bags.

On Sunday, Winnie was also blocked from attending church.

“I am blocked from getting out to go to church today. I must explain myself for 20 minutes,” she tweeted.

She then shared pictures of policemen who are guarding her husband and opposition leader Kizza Besigye.

“Some of our tormentors are in uniform some not. They are about 30 all armed and with menacing looks.”

She said the police “tormentors” at the gate give her orders where to park her car as they search it before she could go to church.

“Sad! These are young men seeking an honourable career to keep Ugandans safe but who are used by government to oppress Ugandans.”

She said in a legitimate government “not scared out of its wits”, policemen would be helping kids cross streets and keeping villages safe.

“I wonder what danger a free @kizzabesigye1 poses to warrant this level of intrusion in our home? The guilty are afraid?”

She added: “I could do with no protection from Uganda police. I have nothing to fear. Kasangati is a peaceful neighbourhood.”
