Last Friday, Hon. Mathias Mpuuga was summoned for the third time to appear before the Special Investigations Unit, in Kireka. He had ignored the previous two summons. Today April 16, 2012, he appeared before SPI officers Kataratambi Charles, Fred Mirondo, Balaba, Ninsiima Ruth and George Nuwagaba. Mpuuga was accompanied by Muwanga Kivumbi, Ibrahim Nganda Ssemujju and Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago. He was questioned in connection to acts of inciting violence and committing treason at various events in various locations nationwide. He was told that he would be summoned again and questioned further in this regard.
Hon. Mathias Mpuuga is the National Coordinator of the 'outlawed' Activists 4 Change pressure group and will be taking a lot of heat on our behalf. We expect however that more and more activists will be harassed and intimidated during this dark period of our nation's history. Activists will be petitioning the Constitutional Court to challenge the constitutionality of a Statutory Instrument that purportedly outlawed the pressure group with the intention of silencing dissenting voices and criminalizing activist and their activities.
We ask you to remain firm and stand by one another as we face our tormentors. Thank you!
