Popular author and government critic Kakwenza Rukira is in a bad health state according to his lawyer Kiiza Eron.
The lawyer stated that a search was conducted at Kakwenza’s home yesterday.
Giving an update about the author’s health state, the lawyer said it was a sad one since he had been tortured greatly.
He was urinating blood, vomiting and had swollen legs.
This attracted criticism from different public figures especially in the Opposition.
The likes of Bobi Wine and Deputy lord mayor Doreen Nyanjura all condemned these acts against Kakwenza.
Nyanjura said that Kakwenza’s case was sending a message to the rest of Ugandans to stand and resist Museveni and his son, Gen Muhoozi.
Bobi Wine on the other hand said that there must be accountability for all these inhuman crimes committed against Ugandans who oppose the current regime.
Kakwenza in a series of tweets and other social media posts insulted President Museveni and the Commander of the Land Forces Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba.
He was arrested by gunmen purported to be on the orders of Gen Muhoozi and is currently being held incommunicado.
