Kampala, Uganda – 24.02.2024

In a development that has sent shockwaves through the activist community, Sharon Kemigisha, a renowned activist and Woman Councillor for Wandegeya, has been reported missing since yesterday evening. Her phones are switched off, and as her family and friends mobilize to find her, the ominous shadow of a new wave of abductions looms large.

Sharon Kemigisha’s disappearance joins a disturbing trend of prominent activists and dissenters being targeted and unlawfully detained or abducted.

As the situation unfolds, the world is watching, and the people of Uganda are calling for immediate action to ensure the safety and security of all activists. The time for accountability is now.
