The Leader of Opposition, Mathias Mpuuga says the gross human rights violations like arbitrary arrests, torture, enforced disappearances, and extrajudicial killings have forced many opposition supporters to run into exile.

This is contained in his statement issued on Saturday in commemoration of International Human Rights Day.

He adds that it is also worrying that the judiciary seems to have found it convenient to side with the oppressor, noting that some judicial officers continue to entertain cases of grossly tortured suspects in their courtrooms.

Mpuuga notes that his office will continue to demand the truth about people who are without a trace and require that government makes full accountability of every person, and bring to book individuals and groups that have and continue to perpetrate human rights violations in the country.
