On Sunday, Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine who is in Kenya for a visit at the invitation of Kenya Young Parliamentarians Association visited Aga Khan Hospital, Nairobi to check on one of the people that were tortured on the eve of Arua Municipality MP by-election.
One of the victims who was identified as Sauda Madada was admitted for treatment at Aga Khan Hospital.
Mr. Kyagulanyi said Ms. Madada was 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 tweeted.
Ms Madada, at the time of her referral last month, was vomiting blood.
Mr Kasiano Wadri who won the August elections to become Arua Municiapality MP, recently said that Ms Madada was hit by a cartridge of the bullet that killed Mr Kyagulayi’s driver Yasin Kawuma because they were sitting in the same vehicle before being detained 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.
