Kampala, (UG): The National Unity Platform NUP party president, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu also known as BobiWine has lashed out at the United Nations UN Secretary-General, António Guterres for not speaking against human rights violations at the G77 + China Summit.
“Mr. @UN Secretary General, @antonioguterres, It is disappointing that on your visit to Uganda, you have not spoken for the millions of Ugandans and other Africans in the region, oppressed by your host, a renowned brutal dictator, Gen. Museveni!,” Bobi Wine said in a statement posted via his official X account.
“Your presence in Africa (specifically in Uganda) would have made more sense if you addressed the real issues – gross human rights violations, rigging of elections, military trials of political opponents, the plunder and humanitarian crisis in the DRC, etc,” he added.
The NUP leader lamented that while the Secretary General of the UN spoke at Munyonyo, opposition leaders including himself are either under house arrest or on the run from the military!
“Museveni recently closed down the UN Human Rights Office. How can you come all the way and not say anything about these issues? The UN must stand on the values it purports to represent. Otherwise, it’ll be reduced to a club of tyrants and attract resistance from the suffering people of the world,” Kyagulanyi cautioned.
