I spent a fair part of the afternoon at Kitalya Mini-Maximum Prison interacting with the jailed writer and Human Rights activist, Mr. Kakwenza Rukirabashaija.
Healing scars and other marks of torture covered his body as he slightly limped into the room where I was seated. He lowered his yellow mask to smile at me but I read pain written all over his face.
He then told a chilling story of how he was tortured for the entire time he spent in the hands of a one Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba’s soldiers!
His finger nails have patches of blood caused by injuries he sustained during the torture sessions. He told me that the soldiers used a pair of pliers to pluck his finger nails and other body parts before being made to dance nonstop throughout the day and night.
All this happened in torture dungeons in Entebbe managed by Gen Muhoozi but he seems to be above the law, and therefore cannot be tried. He and his accomplices should be the ones sleeping at Kitalya but he is at large and tweeting with excitement!
