“ A few months after her release, around May 2021, she was abducted and held incommunicado for weeks, undergoing torture”, Bobi Wine continued to state.
According to Bobi wine, “Later, she was produced before the Military Court Martial without the knowledge of her lawyers and family, charged with illegal possession of military equipment, and then remanded to prison. Upon learning of this development, our legal team filed a bail application for her and others but the military court took over 9 months just to fix it for hearing. The application was finally heard but summarily dismissed!”.
