KAMPALA — Bobi Wine lawyer Medard Lubega Sseggona says criminal elements in Government are portraying incumbent President Yoweri Museveni as a weak and a very frustrated leader.
Sseggona who personally grilled National Unity Platform founder Moses Nkonge Kibalama during court cross examination on Friday said, “Kibalama didn’t know the names of the law firm representing him”.
Kibalama also confirmed to court that he has been under military detention for two weeks in Mbale, on orders of UPDF chief Gen. David Muhoozi, a claim the military has since described as malicious propaganda against the army chief.
Mr. Kibalama also disowned the video in which he appeared claiming that he was promised USD5 million by Bobi Wine real name Robert Kyagulanyi to change party leadership.
He also denied ever selling his party to Kyagulanyi.
“I am not aware of it( the video recording). I was not selling any political party. There is no supermarket where political parties are sold. You ask them (Bobi Wine) if they bought the party,” Kibalama told court in bemusement of everyone.
Lawyer Sseggona said he will expose this behind the schemes.
“A week back most NRM Moblilisers abused Bobi Wine and even concluded that he failed to pay 5m USD to Kibalama. Yesterday in Court Kibalama instead exposed the state by saying he doesn’t know who recorded the video, he didn’t know where he was but he said he was not at his home,” Lawyer Sseggona said on Friday warning that the trend represents a dangerous escalation of human rights violations.
He added: “Its unfortunate that criminal elements in Government have decided to portray Museveni as a weak and frustrated leader”.
Ssegona says Kibalama who has been under military detention was kidnapped by Intelligence Agencies and recorded the video on duress, he also signed the affidavit on duress since he said he didn’t know what he signed.
