NUP Blogger, Fred Lumbuye Reportedly Arrested In Turkey

Kyadondo East legislator, Nkunyingi Muwadda has come out to reveal that Fred Lumbuye Kajjubi, the NUP social media blogger and propagandist has been arrested in Turkey.

Muwadda who describes Lumbuye as a Ugandan political activist said that he had been kidnapped after a disguised arrest.

With this arrest, Muwandda expects Lumbuye’s extradition to Uganda. Muwadda however said that to date, there is no bilateral treaty between Uganda and Turkey that warrants extradition between the countries.

The legislator went ahead to say that it’s illegal to extradite any Ugandan moreover for housing divergent political views under domestic and international law.

Muwadda went ahead to say that a team dispatched from NUP will set off to Turkey to handle the matter

“I’m aware a team of parliamentarians including our NUP Commissioner Hon. Francis Zaake will be in Turkey this Wednesday night. Within Uganda, we are taking up multiple options to his rescue. Among others, we shall reach out to the Turkish diplomatic circles to demand for his whereabouts and unconditional release or rescue.” Part of Muwadda’s statement read.

Muwadda further said that they must condemn any attempt to suffocate Ugandans in the diaspora through illegal kidnap and detention.

He called on all people who subscribe to their cause both internally and abroad to demand for his release.

Fred Lumbuye Trouble Origins

The government placed Lumbuye on the wanted list for numerous addresses he propagates into people. This has at times caused security upheaval among Ugandans due to its poisonous nature.

These included allegations that the Katikiro of Buganda, the Nabagerekka and some officials had connived with the central government to poison the Kabaka.

He called on the Baganda to take to the streets and demand for the Kabaka’s body saying he was dead. Lumbuye apparently is also one of the people who circulated the rumor that President Museveni had died.
