He alleged that due to mismanagement, torture, corruption and sectarianism in the UPDF, the security of Ugandans is at stake which cannot be allowed to happen anymore.

“We cannot allow these human abuses to continue under the guidance of generals who are not ashamed of silencing human rights activists like Gen. Sejusa,’’ stressed Tugume.

Tugume added that it’s their role as human rights defenders to see that an investigation into the violation of human rights by security agencies be carried out immediately.
