The distressing silence surrounding the disappearance of activist Sharon Kemigisha continues to raise concerns, with five days having elapsed since her abduction. As her husband and the residents of Katanga, her community, demand her release, allegations of government involvement in her abduction echo louder than ever.

The crisis highlights a disturbing pattern of alleged government harassment and kidnapping of political activists. The regime of President Museveni has come under heavy scrutiny for its alleged role in the disappearance and detention of activists, with several similar cases in recent weeks.
