Bobi Wine Applauds US Move To Ban CMI Boss Abel Kandiho

Former presidential candidate and National Unity Platform (NUP) president Hon Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine has come out to applaud the US’ move to impose financial restrictions on CMI boss Abel Kandiho.

The UPDF spokesperson Brig Flavia Byekwaso earlier issued a statement showing the government and securities disapproval of Kandiho’s ban.

“We have been officially notified about the unilateral financial sanctions against Maj Gen Abel Kandiho, the Chief of Military Intelligence- UPDF by the United States of America government,” a statement issued by Brig Byekwaso partly read.

She added that as the UPDF and government, this move is disappointing to them. This is because they considered the US a friend and ally.

“We are disappointed that such a decision could be made by a country we consider friendly, a partner and a great ally, without due process and in total disregard of the principle of ‘fair hearing’, occupied with failure to make the necessary consultations.”

She further added that they will be engaging with US government on which way to take regarding this matter.

However, according to Bobi Wine, Kandiho has overseen gross abuse of human rights . The former Kyadondo east legislator adds that under Kandiho’s watch, the greatest violation of human rights happened. It’s therefore time for him and other government apologists to watch as their “dictator boss ” falls.

“They have abducted, tortured and murdered Ugandans with impunity. To now see this same lot pleading human rights when it’s time for one of them to be held accountable is ironic. Financial sanctions are highly welcome. Dictator Museveni and his cronies must and shall account for their atrocities,” Bobi Wine said.

Kandiho joins other high-ranking Ugandan officials that have seen sanctions imposed on them by the US. These include among others the former IGP, Gen Kale Kayihura.
