“A detailed search in the system established Lumbuye has never been received by the Foreigners Detention Centre. As well that no Ugandan has been registered in the centre for the last Weeks.” a Facebook post shared by Muwada reads.
“The search for Lumbuye and his Freedom is a public but not a private pearch. All our efforts are voluntary. We shall keep the public posted with reality in our knowledge and when we establish so with evidence. Please bear with us in consuming the hard facts” Muwada revealed.
“We engaged an additional team of highly skilled Turkish lawyers this afternoon headed by Advocate Adnan Sahin in the Search and Complimenting the existing team.” He added.
