Hon Derrick Nyeko Narrates How He Was Imprisoned 17 Times In 2 Months

Makindye East Member of Parliament and National Unity Platform NUP member Hon Derrick Nyeko has narrated a horrifying story about his arrest. He said he was once arrested 17 times in just a period of two months.

Hon Nyeko said he has never felt tortured in his life like the way he felt during that period of his arrests.

Being a NUP member, one has to fight their way through to be heard. Most NUP members get arrested when they try to do something that opposes government.

According to Hon Nyeko during the 2021 general elections, he fought so hard for his position in parliament. He had to also fight for his president Bobi Wine real name Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu and that came with so many arrests.

Hon Nyeko said he remembers being arrested almost every day during the campaigns. He was sometimes picked from his home and at his campaigns.

He said he doesn’t think there was even any reason for him to be arrested. Additionally, he said he was fighting for his freedom and that of people around him.

“I was imprisoned 17 times in 2 months. I can’t forget those days because they were nightmares. And I couldn’t even sleep because they often arrested me from my home,” he said.
