Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi known by many as Bobi Wine has visited Aga Khan hospital in Nairobi to check on the healing progress of one his supporter Sauda Madada who was arrested and tortured during Arua municipality by-election fracas.
According to Bobi Wine who is currently in Nairobi, Ms Madada is steadily recovering after being referred from Kampala to Nairobi for better treatment.
“Our sister in struggle Sauda Madada is steadily recovering at Aga Khan Hospital Nairobi. The beatings in Arua left her incapacitated and was referred here. Many thanks to all doctors who have attended to her since. Thankfully, she is in high spirits and sends greetings,” Mr Kyagulanyi said via his tweeter.
Ms Madada, at the time of her referral last month, was vomiting blood.
Arua municipality member of parliament Kassiano Wadri Ezati who the election had earlier said that Madada was hit by a cartridge of the bullet that killed Bobi Wine driver Yasin Kawuma because they were sitted in the same vehicle before being arrested and tortured.
Earlier, Mr Kyagulanyi, flanked by the Embakasi East Member of Parliament Babu Owino addressed a rally at Kibera in Nairobi where he asked Kenyans for support in a bid to win what he called freedom in Uganda.
“I’m not here to ask for guns; I’m here to ask for your continued brotherhood and unity to fight impunity in our countries. While we talk about East African Community, it should not be a presidents’ club. It is about us citizens. Our grandfathers fought for freedom and liberty. They promised to end colonialism but the system changed from white colonialists to black colonialist,” Mr Kyagulanyi said.
