Video: Uganda now police state, says Mbabazi


Former Prime Minister, Amama Mbabazi, says Uganda is now becoming a police state.

Mbabazi made the remarks on Wednesday while responding to the break-in and theft of his lawyers’ files.

Mbabazi accused police of masterminding the grand theft of lawyers Muhammad Mbabazi and Fred Muwema’s files and laptops.

Asked about claims that he stage-managed the raids on his lawyers’ offices, Mbabazi dismissed the reports.

Mbabazi’s petition pre-hearing session continues Thursday morning when all affidavits expected to be submitted.

His lawyers have confirmed in a letter that they won’t be able to submit the affidavits as court asked.

Uganda police state?

“All my life, I have committed myself to fight for justice,” Mbabazi told reporters at Go Forward offices in Nakasero.

“Uganda is surely sliding into a police state where issues are decided by police. This is a travesty.”

He said if the actions of the police are not contained, Uganda will quickly slide into a police state.

Mbabazi however indicated that he was confident about the judicial system.

He further accused state agencies of arresting and detaining his witnesses.

“State agencies are on a hunt for those willing to give evidence, with a main purpose of intimidating them.”
