The former leader of opposition Winnie KiIza has expressed her concern over delayed justice for the people of Uganda.
“As a leader, I am equally at pain over the delayed justice for our people,”she noted.
Her comments came shortly after the death of Rwenzururu royal guard who passed on in Luzira prison hospital bringing to 4 ,the number of guards who have died since their arrest in November 2016.
Rwenzururu King Charles Wesley Mumbere was on November 26, 2016 arrested with 200 others after a clash between the UPDF and his guards in Kasese that led to the death of more than 100 people.
Kiiza noted that according to the constitution, when someone clocks 55 years, he or she is considered of advanced age and it’s a ground for the court of law to grand him or her bail.
However, Ezakiel Isonderya, the guard who died in the prison did not benefit from the law even when he is said to be in his 70s.
“It’s more disturbing when we learn that these deaths are linked to the torture our people were subjected to. When our people appeared before court for the mention of the charges, each family spent Ug shs 100,000 to reach out to those relatives. families are strained and stranded in hopelessness,” she said.
