viagra 40mg geneva;”>FHRI boss Livingstone Sewanyana says the office was left vandalized after unknown people robbed 9 laptops, documents, 11 mobile phones and huge sums of money.

“Police and a security firm, Security Group, which has since been in charge of our security here are involved in investigating this case,” said Sewanyana.

“Desks were ransacked and doors broken,” Sewanyana told Chimpreports news desk on Monday morning, adding, “The guard was drugged and could not explain anything.”

It’s yet unclear whether the raid was aimed at sabotaging the human rights group’s activities in the country.
