Mr Zaake declared that “Nothing will deter [our] quest to liberate the nation.” (Daily Monitor )
“We will continue to be peaceful but consistent on demanding for our freedoms. The cowardly acts of brute by heavily armed men will not stop us,
“The government ruthlessness against its own children that it should care for is costing the regime as the population.” Mr Zaake said.
Recalling the Arua incidence that led to his predicament, Mr Zaake condemned the brutal nature of security operatives but said that he pardons them.
“I forgive them although I know they wanted me dead… The soldiers who tortured me kept asking why I disturb the President and one soldier shouted why after a lot of beating I could not die,” he said.
MP Zaake has assured Ugandans that he is in good medical condition although not yet healed.
“My skin is peeling but doctors have assured me that I am out of danger, although I suffer episodes of paralysis in my legs,” he said.
At the time of the torture, he was injected with substances, hit with gun butts and iron bars and his limbs were hit and pliers were used to pull parts of his body.
Mr Zaake added that some foreign bodies were discovered in his blood.
After government’s refusal to pay his bills, Zaake confirmed that the Shs110m will be footed by AAR Medical Insurance after government’s refusal to meet the expenses.
