Nakawa Division MP Michael Kabaziguruka says he is more resolute than ever to remove the regime of President Yoweri Museveni.
The legislator was last week released from Kigo prison on bail by High Court in Kampala.
Kabaziguruka and a group of 50 were charged with treachery before the military court in Kampala for allegedly trying to overthrow President Yoweri Museveni’s government with the use of fire arms.
Appearing on NBS TV morning breeze Tuesday, Kabaziguruka said prison is not as bad as it is made out to be.
“I was prepared. But everyone deserves to be free. I am more resolute than ever.”
He added: “We need to remove this regime as a matter of urgency through peaceful means. We are sitting on a time bomb.”
He said civilians being tried in the court martial is gross abuse of the law.
“We must work harder so that what happened to me doesn’t happen to anyone else. We need to cause peaceful change.”
According to Kabaziguruka, government keeps saying FDC wants an armed struggle which is not the case.
He promised to ask the people to make the choice.
The legislator also promised to petition parliament on the plight of prisoners saying prisoners are not treated as human beings.
He said the food is terrible and treatment is inconsistent with laws.
“Like Nelson Mandela said, you can never judge how bad a country is until you visit its prisons.”
In prison, the MP said he met people who have gone over 8 years without getting justice.
“Judiciary has a lot of work to do. I plan to present my experience in prison before Parliament. The situation in our prisons is bad. Bad.”
