Panic has gripped the family of Mityana municipality member of parliament Francis Zaake Butebi over a failed attempt to whisk away the legislator from his sick bed at Lubaga Hospital. The family alleges a team of five men on Friday evening attempted to take the legislator from his hospital bed but efforts that were thwarted by hospital security.
Zaake lawyer Asuman Balirwa said they suspect Special Force Command soldiers could be behind the foiled kidnap of the sick legislator because they are the same people who dumped him unconscious at hospital.
The brother of the sick legislator said a group of unidentified men accessed hospital room where the law maker is currently admitted and tried to whisk away by force. He explained that he raised an alarm forcing the men to flee away.
Zaake sustained severe injuries after being tortured by soldier in Arua. Sources within the Bobi Wine camp said that Zaake received severe torture at Arua Regional Referral Hospital after being admitted at the facility. The torture from Arua hospital left him unconscious forcing his tormentor to transfer him to Lubaga hospital were he was dumped at the hospital gate.
