Unidentified gunmen driving in a numberless minibus alias drone have kidnapped Sheikh Yahya Mwanje, the former acting Amir Ummah of Salafiya Tablique Muslim community.

Siraji Kifampa, the spokesperson of Jamatil Salafiya Tablique Muslim community, says that the gunmen intercepted Mwanje shortly after stepping out of Nakasero Mosque around 8:30 am today morning.  

"We don't know who took him but we are trying to establish his whereabouts," said Kifampa.

Sheikh Mwanje is one of the suspects facing trial for the murder of Maj Muhammad Kiggundu and his bodyguard Sgt Steven Mukasa on November 26, 2016 at Masanafu trading centre in Lubaga Division. 

He stayed on remand until June 2019 when the International Crimes Division of the High court granted him a non-cash bail of Shs 20 million and each of his four sureties executed a noncash bond of Shs 10 million. 

According to Kifampa, Mwanje has been returning to court to hear his case and was scheduled to return at 9 am when he was abducted. He is jointly charged with Sheikh Muhammad Buyondo alias, Matiya and Abdul Wahab Sendegeya both boda boda riders in Kyengera, and Musa Sekandi, alias Masanafu.

A drone is supposed to be a flying object or a queen bee. I don't understand why Uganda calls the regime's mobile torture van a drone. Just call it has it is.

Well these are the lucky officials who have made it as a right to carry arms. And to use them as the African police use them to threaten and even kill the unarmed African civilians at any time. They are even able to defend themselves if attacked!

By the way, the political NRM officials obtained such rights to arms by stealing these same killer arms from several previous governments. Unfortunately for many citizens of this country, such dodgy rights to arms was initiated by British colonialism with the excuse of protectionism. Against what? God knows what?

Most Ganda citizens need to find a way to protect themselves these days especially when the Ganda leadership themselves seems to have a well protected military of their own! One of the international You tube broadcasters has advised the Ganda vulnerable to kidnapping to be well armed at any time.

But I wonder what is the state of the souls of the thugs whose business is to abduct and torture innocent Ugandans on behalf of the criminal regime in government.

I wonder what is the emotional relationship between these thugs and their immediate family members: their wives, children, parents, in-laws, girlfriends and/or unsuspecting freinds.

I pity the wives and/or children who on a daily basis, are embraced with the bloody abomination (Kisirani) these thug commit on fellow countrymen, women and by extension children and relatives.

In other words, you can't harm, torture and/or kill another human being and still remain normal and human. It is pure self-condemnation.

"Because a human being is in the image of God, whoever harm or torture another human being, spits in the face of God" (Desmond Tutu [RIP])

In the Quran 5:32, "whoever kills another human being (person) has killed the whole of humanity (Genocide). And whoever saves another person's life, has saved the whole of humanity".

In other words, the Drones operators are committing Genocide on Ugandans.
