The Kibaale county Mp in Kamwenge district, Eng Cuthbert Abigaba has protested the manner in which tortured Mayor of Kamwenge Town Council, Geoffrey Byamukama was snatched from the hospital and taken back to Nalufenya detention facility in Jinja district.

According to his wife, Viola Kyomugisha, Byamukama was picked from Nakasero hospital and taken back to Nalufenya on Saturday over what the police say was rescuing him from media disturbances.

 Byamukama was recently arrested in connection to the murder of former police spokesperson Andrew Felix Kaweesi, had been admitted at the hospital with serious wounds allegedly sustained from police torture at the detention centre.

Eng Abigaba says it is inhuman for Byamukama to be discharged when he is still in pain as a result of his superficial wounds.
