Kyadondo East Member of Parliament, Robert Kyagulanyi, also known as Bobi Wine has paid courtesy visits to some of the families and victims of the Arua Municipality chaos.
On August 13, over 30 people including four MPs were arrested by security agencies in Arua for allegedly stoning the presidential convoy as the municipality by-election campaigns ended.
However, a number of those arrested later appeared in court limping whereas others had wounds that were allegedly inflicted on them when they were tortured by security agencies.
On Saturday, Kyagulanyi visited Shaban Atiku, an aide of the newly elected Arua Municipality Member of Parliament Kassiano Wadri, Night Asaba at Mengo hospital where they are being treated before proceeding to Rubaga where he met Saudha Madada.
Wadri’s aide narrated his ordeal before telling the legislator that he sustained five broken ribs and spinal cord, and is still in deep pain besides having difficulties in walking.
Kyagulanyi grieved with all the victims and promised to do all it takes to ensure they are assisted in terms of medication.
Later he visited the home of his late driver Yasin Kawuma and met his two widows in Kiteezi, Lusanja in Wakiso District.
Kawuma’s family members narrated to Bobi Wine the ordeal of what they are going through since their bread winner was shot dead in Arua on August 13.
The family members expressed anger towards the newly elected MP for Arua Municipality Kassiano Wadri whom they accused of not sparing time to pay them a visit or console them despite Kawuma being killed while canvassing for Wadri’s votes.
The Kyadondo East legislator promised to offer some assistance to them.
“I know that the family is undergoing difficulties but I will help with what I can,”Bobi Wine said.
He told the family that he would fight tooth and nail with the help of his lawyers to ensure that Kawuma’s killers are brought to book for justice to prevail.
