The National Unity Platform Party President Hon Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert alias Bobi Wine’s bodyguard has lost his grandfather while in prison with other close friends of the NUP president including Nubian Li, Dan Majic, and many others.
Edward Ssebuufu was arrested by the Military in December 2020 with over 50 others in Kalangala district during the campaigns of the 2021 general elections in which President Museveni was declared winner and Kyagulanyi came second
Today Bobi Wine has come out via a Facebook tweet and announced the death of Eddy Mutwe’s grandfather Mzee Kayiwa who passed on this Wednesday, was the father of Eddie Mutwe’s mother and was very close to him, he will be laid to rest on Sunday, in Busujju, Mityana District. Bobi Wine in his words he said;
“Comrade Eddie Mutwe’s grandfather, mzee Charles Kayiwa passed on yesterday. Mzee Kayiwa was the father of Eddie Mutwe’s mother and was very close to him. It is very unfortunate that for no crime whatsoever, Eddie was unable to spend with his grandfather his last days on earth, despite making several pleas to have his grandson brought to him on his sickbed.
It will be recalled that several of our comrades have lost loved ones while under illegal detention, including comrade Achleo Kivumbi whose father passed on a few weeks ago, and he was not allowed to go and send him off.
This is the price many comrades continue to pay, for simply exercising their constitutional right to participate in shaping the destiny of their country. I am persuaded that the present tribulations are preparing for us a greater victory. Gen. Museveni may boast of causing incredible suffering and pain to our people, but there will be accountability for all this.
Mzee Kayiwa will be laid to rest on Sunday, in Busujju, Mityana District. We are in touch with the family about the burial arrangements. We pray that God strengthens especially Eddie’s mother, who has to deal with a dead father and absent son at this time. May his soul rest in peace”
