Former Internal Security Organisation [ISO] operative, Charles Rwomushana, says he will not be intimidated or subdued by the state.
“Light the candle to subdue darkness,” he wrote on his social media Facebook wall on Thursday.
“No amount of force against us; No amount of threat of violence or violence against us that will stop the flow of the conversation. The conversation shall endure.”
The former State House head of political intelligence says he will this evening at 7:00pm to 8:00pm “keep the hope of self-liberation alive on 93.3 KFM radio”.
This comes only a day after he was released from police custody and placed under police guard at his home.
Rwomushana was arrested last week and detained at Kireka Special Investigations Division [SID] for sharing a picture alleged to be that of Amama Mbabazi’s bodyguard, Christopher Aine, who is feared dead.
Aine went missing in December last year after being “kidnapped” by security operatives in Kyanja, outside Kampala.
Police denied arresting him saying they were also looking for him for assaulting NRM party members in Ntungamo district.
The picture of his alleged dead body was published by Red Pepper after being shared by Rwomushana on his Facebook wall.
Two Red Pepper editors were arrested over the story and consequently, Rwomushana too was detained.
He was charged with libel and promotion of sectarianism before being released on police bond.
Rwomushana told Uganda Radio Network at his home that the issue of sectarianism never arose during his incarceration.
Deputy police spokesperson, Polly Namaye, said they were investigating Rwomushana for posts on Rwenzori attacks which were thought sectarian in nature.
The spy told URN that instead the focus was on issues around the disappearance of Aine.
He said the sectarian law is oppressive, insisting that his is a fight for equity in Uganda.
