NRM’s honcho Hajji Abdul Nadduli said that his son Suleiman Jakaana Nadduli was abducted by Uganda’s security forces over unknown reasons.
In a phone interview, Nadduli demanded the immediate release of his son whether alive or dead.
“I don’t know why he was taken but the main issue here is I want my son back. Give me my son or send me his corpse. I tried contacting my generals who are in top positions in this country and I informed them about the issue,” he said.
He said his son was taken in a drone and up to now, they have been looking for him without any success.
The leader of the National Unity Platform (NUP) Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine said all Ugandans must condemn this new wave of abductions and illegal arrests.
“Jakana’s persecution from the time he got a very suspicious accident that nearly took his life should be a clear reminder that the regime in Uganda has no friends. Considering how much his father has done in the past to anchor the regime, this is not how they should pay him back. Those who still hobnob with the military regime must learn a lesson,” he said.
The secretary general at NUP, David Lewis Rubongoya said if Jakaana has committed any offence, the best way to handle the issue could be to produce him in the courts of law within 48 hours as required by law.
“I just watched on TV his father Mzee Hajj Abdul Nadduli pleading to military generals and other government officials for his son’s release. It is painful to imagine how such a person feels, after giving in so much in a bush war that they all thought was meant to restore sanity and the rule of law in our country,” he said.
