Nation Television reporter Cliff Wamala, NBS TV’s Josephine Namakumbi and New Vision’s Timothy Mulungi have been allegedly assaulted by the Uganda Military officers .

The journalist were covering Robert Kyagulanyi' famously known as Bobi Wine journey to petition the United Nations Human Rights office over rights violations in Uganda after the general elections that were held earlier this year.

Bobi Wine had walked to the supreme court of Uganda to Protest the results of the presidential elections which he says were marred with irregularities. Yesterday ,Bobi wine complained that the courts were not being impartial as the whole processes were being derailed deliberately.

Military in Uganda has in many occasion been used by Museveni's dictatorial regime to intimidate opposition supporters .

Just like former opposition leader Kizza Besigye ,Bobi wine was put under home arrest immediately after the elections.

Social media packages have been blocked and several media houses gagged. It is not clear why president museveni has shut social media but critics say that he is curtailing media freedom to cling to power.
