A 34-year-old man has gone to the press, pleading for justice after being allegedly subjected to torture by his supervisors at China Railway No.3 Engineering Group (CR3), a company contracted to construct the road from Moroto to the Kenyan border of Lokitanyala.
Martin Satya, a driver hired by the company, claimed that he was tortured on August 28, by his boss, a Chinese national. This after his boss also accused him of siphoning fuel from a truck that he had been told to take to the garage for repairs.
In Satya ‘s narration to the press, he claims he was taken to Moroto Central Police Station where he allengedly spent three days without treatment until he was granted police bond on August 31 when his health condition deteriorated. He alleged that when he went to seek help from the human resource office, he was ordered out of the premises by the same supervisor who tortured him.
Strangely, Satya says that although he was detained by police, he never recorded a statement. He claims his pursuit for justice has been downplayed by the force.
Justin Ekanya, the human resource manager at China Railway No.3, says the matter is being handled internally, after hearing from all parties, and that the company authorities are equally awaiting police action.
However, Micheal Longole, the Mt Moroto Regional Police Spokesperson says he has not yet received such a case on his desk.
