KAMPALA – Top City comedian Patrick Idringi better known by his stage name Salvador the man from Ombokolo has expressed his dissatisfaction in the aftermath of the elections clamping on the illegal house arrest of opposition leader Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu alias Bobi Wine.
The Sanyu FM Radio host Patrick does not concur with the way president Yoweri Museveni’s government has poorly treated the opposition especially Bobi Wine who has been barred from leaving his home for the past nine days.
A few days ago, the National Unity Platform (NUP) principal Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu revealed how nobody has been allowed to access his home where he is locked up together with his wife and an 18-months-old baby.
Several of his supporters have often called out fellow politicians and artistes to demand for Bobi Wine’s release.
Patrick Salvado, who has for long publically heavily supported the NRM government and President Museveni, has suddenly turned out to criticize their actions.
In a post shared across his social media accounts, Salvado reveals how he is not in support of the general treatment of the opposition during the election period.
“Supporting Kaguta Museveni doesn’t necessarily mean I agree with everything his government does. The general treatment of opposition during the whole election period has been appalling, especially the treatment of Bobi Wine,” he said.
Salvador added that there hasn’t been any sensible reason why Bobi Wine or his colleagues are still under detention.
“It’s a very sad and disturbing thing when injustice is caused by those you have faith in.”
Salvado also says that he has for long wanted to share his feelings but feared because all he communicates lately is faced with insults.
“As for #FreeNFair elections, I’m sorry if we still think this can be achieved anywhere in Africa. It’s taken me time to share my feelings coz well whatever I tried to communicate was watered down by insults but at the end of the day I’m human and I know injustice #FreeDomIs4All,” he shared.
