Blogger and outspoken ruling party supporter, Ashburg Katto has run to the online streets to decry Police brutality after being beaten to pulp.
Katto took to social media, lamenting how his teeth were knocked out and how he was humiliated.
Katto explained that he was heading to UBC Television Offices to present a national project about Climate Change.
He was however intercepted by Police, which dragged him out of the car he had borrowed. He was taken to Post Office Police Post where he was beaten to fainting level.
As though embarrassing him was not enough, the car he has borrowed was towed, hurting Ashburg’s feelings even more.
“I have been badly assaulted (physically), embarrassed, and manhandled by O.C of Post Office Police Post (Atwasa Gilbert). They would have beat me but not towed the car I just borrowed to take me to @ubctvuganda to present a National Project about Climate Change,” Ashburg tweeted on Monday night.
“I wish I can die rather than being hurt by my very own…Thank u. Thank u, thank u. How will I even walk on the same streets with these gaps in my teeth God? How? Friends, I’m in pain. As in real pain but the doctors at Senta Medical are trying,” he cried out like a child
His support for the ruling NRM party however is not shaken in the slightest. On the contrary, Katto says he will vote for Museveni again and again.
“I WILL VOTE @KagutaMuseveni AND I WILL ALWAYS LOVE MY COUNTRY BÙT AS OF NOW… I DENOUNCE MY LOVE N SUPPORT FOR THIS GOVERNMENT. LET ME TREAT MY WOUNDS, PAIN & SHAME IN PEACE, I WILL RISE AGAIN INSHALLAH — Ashburg Katto (@ashburgkatto) July 19 2021.
It should be recalled that Ashburg was a close friend and ardent supporter of Bobi Wine and NUP before ditching him to join the ruling NRM.
