Angry Ugandans living a life of ‘speak and be tortured’ have blasted United States of America over its fruitless warnings against Ugandan leaders on violations of human rights.
Their reaction came after US issuing another warning to Uganda this evening ‘narrating’ that forced disappearance, arbitrary detention, and use of physical and mental torture of Ugandan citizens by the security forces reflect poorly on the government and undermine the Constitution of the Republic of Uganda.
“US if it can’t act then it should shut up, we are tired of their everyday bogus talks, they arm perpetrators, fund them and after come talking nonsense to the oppressed,” said a furious Ugandan who was badly tortured in previous bloody elections on condition of anonymity.
In its statement, US this evening said;
“Statement on Recurring Credible Accounts of Forced Disappearance, Arbitrary Detention, and Torture in Uganda
Recurring credible accounts of forced disappearance, arbitrary detention, and use of physical and mental torture of Ugandan citizens by the security forces reflect poorly on the government and undermine the Constitution of the Republic of Uganda, which under Article 24 states, ”No person shall be subjected to any form of torture, cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.”
We urge the Government of Uganda, as a party to the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights and the Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, to protect the rights of its citizens and to hold accountable those who violate these rights.
We recognize the courage of the victims in sharing their experiences with the public, and of concerned citizens calling for the full expression of their constitutional rights and protections. We also commend the media for shining light on these stories and raising awareness.”
These come at a time when a couple of Ugandans mostly youths leaning on opposition parties are said to be going through hell in illegal ‘abduction’ centres country wide whereas those who have been released on the mercy of God are seen in the media with rotten body parts over what they call excessive torture in detention and abduction centres.
