Former Supreme Court judge, Professor George Kanyeihamba, has supported those who have plans of dragging the Inspector General of Police, Kale Kayihura, to The Hague.
“I don’t disagree with those saying Inspector General of Police Kale Kayihura should be taken to ICC [International Criminal Court] given the actions of the police,” Kanyiehamba said Wednesday morning while appearing on NBS television.
Professor Kanyeihamba said the police is currently “raping” opposition leader, Kizza Besigye.
“How then can you say the situation is fair?”
He added: “We are in the worst constitutional crisis since colonial times.”
“I never thought I could live to see Uganda Police behave the way they are behaving. Depressing!”
The professor was still skeptical saying Uganda will not recover from the “fiasco of expenditure” in the 2016 elections for the next 10 years.
He said the way the government is behaving resembles fascism.
Fascism is a form of radical authoritarian nationalism that came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe.
Influenced by national syndicalism, fascism originated in Italy under Benedicto Mussolini during World War I, in opposition to liberalism, Marxism, and anarchism.
The Judge says the situation in Uganda is as “disheartening” as those days.
“I never thought I could see this day.”
He commented the arrest of NBS TV journalists; Elijah Turyagumanawe and Bahati Remmy.
“They were brave. I congratulate them. They are going to make good journalists.”
He also expressed happiness that a losing candidate [Amama Mbabazi] has petitioned court so that there can be a judicial audit of the “ghastly events” of last month.
“It is unfortunate that Kizza Besigye has been prohibited from gathering evidence to challenge the election.”
Kanyeihamba faulted the Electoral Commission for declaring a winner based on provisional results saying it was “unconstitutional”.
“Electoral Commission is partly to blame as well as some NRM members who decided to rig this election.”
He however lauded “Women’s Situation Room Uganda” women for pushing a dialogue between Besigye and President Museveni.
“Your sentiments are shared, not only by Ugandans, but the whole world.” He said in case dialogue between government and opposition fails, Uganda will be in the gravest calamity.
