Bedridden Members of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi also known as Bobi Wine and Francis Zaake Mutebi are leaving in fear at government’s Kiruddu Hospital after police blocked them from travelling abroad last evening.
This website understands that the legislators have turned down any medical examination from the hospital medical team, arguing that ‘something is not right.’
A source in Bobi’s camp revealed that the MPs are being extra cautious because they think government is planning something sinister.
“Bobi and Zaake believe someone is trying to finish them off. They have turned down all the medical help from the hospital,” the source told us.
The legislators insist they must be allowed to travel abroad for specialised medical treatment.
Last night, Police blocked Zaake and Bobi Wine from travelling abroad for treatment following torture by security operatives in the Arua by-election campaign violence. They then took them to Kiruddu hospital amid heavy police deployment.
Bobi Wine was arrested as he attempted to checkin at Entebbe airport to fly to the United States for further treatment.
His wife Barbie Kyagulanyi said: “Bobi has been violently arrested by Security forces at Entebbe airport as he was heading to Washington, USA for treatment even when he has clearance from court to travel.
He has a medical report from Lubaga hospital recommending urgent medical treatment abroad. He told me that as soon as they closed the ambulance doors, he was again brutally beaten in front of a government doctor. They switched off the lights in the ambulance and started battering him! Bobi is now back in pain and he is dumped at Kiruddu hospital.
He has missed his flight and time is running out. There is something we’re not getting. By denying him access to medical treatment, do they need him disabled for life? We also strongly object to their doctors forcefully trying to administer treatment or draw samples from him.
The same people who have acquiesced in torturing him cannot be trusted with his body.”
Bobi faces treason charges and is out on bail.
