Hon Francis continues to be detained illegally after 8 solid days of his arrest, however, we insist that Hon Francis Zaake committed no offense. Therefore we demand his immediate release since he needs to seek the medical facility of his choice without control of the security operatives.
We also demand that the government takes action against the NRM leaders who in a manner also went on to break the regulation of the social distancing request to give out food. We recently Hon Seninde the state minister for primary Education giving out food. It’s unbearable for the state to persecute Hon Zaake who followed the guideline yet nothing has been said about the NRM leaders who violated the guidelines.

In addition, the state must stop using the coronavirus pandemic as an advantage over the opposition,” Hon Kyagulanyi Sentamu Robert concluded.
