Uganda’s military has denied abducting and torturing an opposition activist, a day after photos surfaced showing the victim with evident torture wounds on his chest.
Opposition leader Bobi Wine said in a Twitter thread that his supporter was burned with hot metals on the chest and that metals were used to shred his skin.
“This has been the fate of hundreds of our supporters who are regularly abducted!” he stated.
According to the military spokesperson, an internal inquiry, however, revealed that the victim, Eric Mwesigwa, was not in the hands of any security agency.
“We advise him to go to the Uganda Human Rights Commission (UHRC) and report or the police so that we can commence intensive investigation,” the spokesperson added.
