The father of the late Capt. Moses Kabusenene has attacked President Yoweri Museveni, saying he and his government contributed to the death of his son.
Speaking to journalists at his home in Keirere in Kakanju sub-county near Bushenyi town on Monday, Eliphaz Kabusenene, 80, said he asked the court martial chairman to allow his son to seek treatment but he refused.
â€œThanks to Museveni, my son has died. Because of Museveni, he was denied treatment,â€ said the tearful father.
As the weeping villagers gathered to wait for the body, Eliphaz said he had been betrayed by the movement government.
He said he was told to get local council letters and one officer from the UPDF in order to stand surety and bail out his son but the military court declined at the last minute.
â€œThis meant that Moses could not look for proper treatment since he had confessed he had HIV,â€ the father said.
Capt. Kabusenene died on Sunday night at Mbuya general military hospital while still in custody.
He was arrested in 2002 when Operation Wembley led by Col. Elly Kayanja was actively involved in wiping out armed robbers.
Kabusenene joined the army in 1982 during the National Resistance Army bush war. He later served as deputy director of sports in the UPDF.
He will buried on today.
