The UPDF has denied as untrue allegations that a lady was arrested by the Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence, (CMI) and later tortured and raped by soldiers.
29-year-old woman, Alexandreos Marinos, a resident of Mbuya told media earlier this week that she was last month arrested on allegations of supporting and playing National Unity Platform leader, Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine’s music.
““They covered my head and drove off to a place that I cannot describe upto now, I just heard them opening the door and pushing me in. They had warned me against playing “Bobi Wine’s music” and ordered me to stop supporting NUP or else I would face dire consequences,”Marinos said.
She mentioned some people she said had participated in the kidnap, torture and rape. On Friday, the UPDF spokesperson, Brig Felix Kulayigye dismissed the claims as baseless.
“She has never been anywhere in UPDF detention leave alone CMI. The days she alleges to have been kidnapped and detained show she was making communication on phone. How can a detainee make phone calls,”Kulayigye said.
