Uganda government rides roughshod over EAC laws to victimize more Rwandans

By Alex Muhumuza

Uganda Police this morning dumped 11 Rwandans at Gatuna Border Post in a continued pattern of rounding up, arresting or victimizing Rwandans in the neighboring country.

Before today’s – Thursday, 7 February 2019 – incident, this website yesterday brought you details of a dozen Rwandans that were arrested from a Jaguar company bus – which was going to Kampala earlier this week – and taken to an unknown location.

We also brought to light another story of five Rwandans – four of them women with two children, respectively of one year, and five months – that Uganda Police had locked up in Kisoro Police Station. They were dumped at the Cyanika border post Tuesday this week, and made their way back home.

This morning this news website has learnt of how the 11 Rwandans (dumped at Gatuna today) spent two months in the jail at Mubende. “This is one of the more inhumane incidents since they were jailed all that time with little children, some only a year, or below”, our sources disclosed.

The victims include Bihibindi Simon, a man of 52, his wife and their 4 children. Their only offence, it is said, was that “they were in Uganda illegally” – although the East African Community’s founding protocols, especially in its articles of free movement of labor and goods, stipulate that proof of nationality of a member state protects against arbitrary arrests, detention or deportation.

The others who have been illegally (as per EAC laws) detained at Mubende are Mazimpaka Muhammad, 31, of Nyanza District; his wife Nyiransabimana Clarisse, and their two children Patrick, 1 year old, and Munezero of only a few months. The last one is a lady called Kayirere Julienne, 41.
