The party president of JEEMA Asuman Baslirwa also decried the manner and conduct Forum for Democratic Change’s Dr. Kizza Besigye has been mistreated by the Uganda police.
In what he described as ‘colonial policies’ while appearing on NBS TV morning show on Wednesday, Basalirwa also threatened to join the defiance campaign since police has frankly portrayed how it’s against Besigye.
“We need to preserve and protect the sanctity of the Constitution. I’m willing to support defiance in any way I can. ” said Basalirwa.
Basalirwa also blasted the police for being misled by the people in power something that has forced them violate the rights of the citizens.
“Anyone who thinks because they have guns, they can violate human rights, they are wrong. We will continue defying. If Besigye has indeed committed a crime, produce him before court not locking him in his house. ” said furious Basalirwa.
He however warned police and government how Ugandans will continue to defying unconstitutional tendencies because its their right.
“Ugandans will not simply look on, whatever you are doing to them, the temper is accumulating wait for the day they shall stand against you. We shall defy and fight for our rights.” Basalirwa warned.
