Nyabushozi County Legislator Col Fred Mwesigye is accusing his counterparts, Robert Kyagulanyi (Bobi Wine) of Kyadondo East and Mityana Municipality’s Francis Zaake of simulating pain.
Col Mwesigye says the two Mps are telling lies about their alleged torture at the hands of SFC soldiers.
While speaking at the launch of a JLOS center in Kiruhura on Friday, Mwesigye said no one was tortured by SFC soldiers in Arua.
“Those who are pretending to be very sick are okay; I want to confirm to you that they were not badly injured,” he said.
The bed ridden MPs only exaggerated their illness when in front of media cameras. -He said
“No one is disabled. But when media cameras or government officials are around, they pretend to be very weak.”
Hon Bobi Wine was yesterday flown to Washington DC where he is said to be undergoing treatment, while his colleague Zaake is still admitted at Kiruddu Government hospital having been blocked from traveling to India for treatment.
President Yoweri Museveni while addressing NRM MPs in Entebbe recently, reportedly confirmed that the MPs were beaten by the SFC soldiers after they tried to resist arrest and fight back.
Speaking at the JLOS center launch however, Col Mwesigye praised the elite military unit for exercising restraint when the presidential motorcade came under attack.
“After pelting stones at the president’s car Museveni picked a radio and ordered soldiers not to shoot,” he said.
“If he had not many people would have died at the scene, so you can see that our president was brought by God,” he said.
The Mp went on to reassure his constituents that nothing with shake the NRM government as long as Museveni is still president.
