The National Resistance Movement (NRM) Secretary General Justine Kasule Lumumba has on Friday visited Baker Kasumba who was admitted to Mulago Hospital on Wednesday.
Kasumba, 21, a resident of Avis Kavulu in Kawempe Division was on Wednesday intercepted by two unidentified men who hit him on the head and later nailed his hands for allegedly supporting National Resistance Movement (NRM) and President Yoweri Museveni.
In a statement issued on Thursday, Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson Patrick Onyango said, “This was a well planned and organized attack. The attackers seem to have trailed him all the way from his work place. We shall not accept this kind of political intimidation and whoever is using it should desist from it.”
During her visit, Lumumba condemned the erroneous act against Kasumba and called on security agencies to jointly speed up the investigations and bring the suspects to book.
She has further called on Ugandans to desist from torture and any other cruel, inhuman or degrading acts against humanity.
Lumumba said every person has the right to freedom of association which includes the freedom to form or join a political party.
Meanwhile, the party relocated Kasumba from Mulago to an undisclosed hospital and pledged to meet all his medical bills.
