Talkative journalist Andrew Mwenda is not happy with Museveni’s security for the arrest of Victoria University’s vice chancellor Dr Lawrence Muganga who was nabbed from his office like a chicken chief at the university.
Despite being a Museveni sympathizer, Mwenda this time round is not happy with the security operatives who are still holding the University boss over claims of spying on Uganda. Dr Muganga who is a Rwandan by origin was found in possession of a Ugandan National Identification card and this has worsened the situation.
According to Mwenda who bitterly wrote to his social media pages, started with rhetorical questions like Why do Ugandan security agencies use methods last employed by Idi Amin’s goons to arrest people? Couldn’t they have invited Lawrance Muganga, the vice chancellor of Victoria University, to police for questioning and then detain him? What is so hard with acting civilized?
He wonders how president Museveni few weeks ago went to Television and Radios and slammed unethical arrests, tortures among other barbaric actions of the security agencies yet his words can’t be heeded to by the men in uniform who seem not to be ready to be nice to any one they intend to arrest.
Mwenda’s rants come at a time when Rwanda has closed her boarder with Uganda for close to three years and several Rwandese have been arrested, detained others deported over spying on Uganda. Negotiations haven’t yet yielded anything yet.
However, netizens have boldly told it Mwenda’s face that he’s saying that simply because fate befell his friend but not to the rest of Ugandans who were detained, brutally beaten in the aftermath of the 2021 general elections.

Mzee we all know how complicated this matter is, to you… The fact that this fellow is being charged for serving your former Master, you’re trying so hard to impress him probably to gain his confidence back… Give us a break ssebo!

@AndrewMwenda is expressing double standards. Over 20 Ugandans have been killed by @RwandaMoD but he has never come out to condemn Rwandan security forces for their barbaric behavior towards Ugandans just because he gets handouts from Kigali regime.

If it had been a suspected UG agent in Kigali, we’d get them back like this. And we’d not even see this ‘uncivil arrest’ video at all. If musicians die hang by their bedsheets in prison..😅😅
Calm down, Andrew….the world doesn’t revolve around you. It has hit home, we know. pic.twitter.com/RQOf9B0VLB

Problem is u only speak when these things hit close to you. Had this been s/o of NUP, you’d probably find an example of how the FBI arrested s/o in a similar way & justify it.

Did you raise the same concerns about the method of arrest when the people you label as “hooligans” simply because they don’t support despot M7 and his junta were being arrested or you were busy bootlicking the junta?
