Forum for Democratic Change’s Deputy Secretary General Harold Kaija has been released from police dungeons at Kireka.
Kaija who was arrested same day like the party’s Secretary for Mobilization, Ingrid Turinawe, Zeridah Kakayi, the party’s secretary for youth and the secretary guard at the party head office.
Police recently claimed they weren’t involved in their arrests and as they couldn’t disclose their whereabouts. However, this isn’t the first time that police is playing games of hide and seek with the opposition politicians.
Just recently, police publicist, Fred Enanga denied that the force hadn’t arrested Ms Turinawe only to be contradicted by his boss, the Inspector General of Police at presser when he admitted that they had arrested Turinawe.
Below is the statement from Mr Kaija
FREE AT LAST
I want to thank all that stood with me when the dictator jailed me for nine days at SID Kireeka for defying Justice Kavuma’s order!
In the Kireeka cells I found Sam Ariho well known in the FDC circles at MUK. He is charged with treason. He inserted my name and that of Michael Kabaziguruka in his statement as one of the people he consulted while starting his activities. I asked him why, he told me he had been beaten. I find this strange!! The truth is that I had not seen him for seven years. He called me one day and I invited him to office. I told him that our party was only involved in Non Violence Actions.
I want to thank my Brother Hon. Nathan Nandala-Mafabi, I made a One Man Protest at the SID offices until I was released yesterday. He asked to be jailed with me if they didn’t allow him to go with me .From what we gathered, all FDC cases, the IGP has the final case.
I can’t forget those who didn’t fear to come to Kireeka to visit me. Mwiru Paul, Anna Adeke Ebaju, and her sister, Wafula Oguttu, Ibrahim Nganda Ssemujju, Dr. Odwer, Senior Counsel Rwakafuzi.
Activists, Kigongo Ayub, Fred W Mutibwa, Ayub, Kalule Sam, Namutebi,Richard Nyombi Byemalo, Musitwa, the NRM Poor Youth,
My family David, Ruth and Edna.
I also want to thank the Social Media Activists for demanding for my release that one day the Kireeka leadership had to come to my cell at mid night to find out if I was keeping my phone. There was panic all over the place for two days. Lastly I thank Ingrid Turinawe and Doreen for the mobilization. What I can authoritatively tell you is that we have a lot of support in the forces.
