During a ceremony honoring the victims of the November 2020 riots, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, also known as Bobi Wine, urged members of Parliament not to return unless the government locates their missing supporters.
Families of the riot victims shared their emotional experiences, and Kyagulanyi, alongside bereaved families, laid wreaths at a memorial wall bearing pictures and names of those lost.
The opposition’s boycott of parliamentary sessions stems from concerns about missing persons, including their supporters.
Kyagulanyi cautioned leaders against betrayal, emphasizing reflection on fallen comrades. He advised MPs not to be coerced into returning to Parliament until the government accounts for the missing supporters.
Despite exhausting legal and human rights avenues to find their supporters, NUP leaders claim no success. The issue of missing persons has sparked heated debates in Parliament, leading to opposition politicians boycotting plenary sessions, pending the government’s report due in a month.
