European Union demands Uganda government to investigate on killed Bobi Wine rioters

The Delegation of the European Union (EU) has called on the government to launch an investigation into last week’s violent riots in Kampala and neighboring districts which were sparked by the arrest of Presidential candidate Bobi Wine.

The EU in statement said the government should carry out “a full and independent investigation into the events of 18th and 19th of November, to ensure justice for victims and to avoid impunity for the perpetrators who must be held accountable for their actions.”
At least 45 people according to police records were killed in the riots, and hundreds injured as security forces descended into the streets to battle angry rioters who were protesting the detention of Bobi Wine in Luuka.

A number of victims were reported to be innocent bystanders and people who were going about their businesses.
Over 800 people have also been arrested in connection to the riots.
