Bobiwine revealed that they decided to spend the night in Migera on the roadside because police under DPC Patience Namara and the OC, Byaruhanga ordered all hotels in the area not to host them.
“We’re now stuck and spending the night on the roadside. The DPC is telling us she will only allow us to stay in her district until 6:00 a.m in the morning.
You can imagine being treated like this in our own country”, he said.
