In the interview with Bwiza.com, Ntwali John Williams, one of these journalists said: “While we were there after hours, a person come and asked who we are, Mugisha replied that we were journalists. He asked again why we were there because he had seen us for a long time ”…
Ntwali continues and say that the person told them to stay at the place. “That person called upon others (unkown)and order them to come with a van to carry us immediately. We thought it was a joke. We started to write SMS. Immediately another person came and pinpoint the idea of bringing a van for our transport all of us ″…added Mugisha
He also added that “While waiting for the van, we discovered that they were not joking, we started to walk stealfully because we had seen that they did not have cuffs to use. And everybody rush to take the Moto to escape….″
He ended by saying that “We rush to leave the place, we do not know what would be next, but now we are safe”.
Asked where his companions are, he replied “I do not know where because everybody rushed to save himself and everybody leave alone″….
With the reason to spend many hours in this home, Mugisha replies: “we were waiting for the information because the watchman has told us to wait for the Rwigaras come back. We wanted to see them, we were afraid that they could arrive being tired and this cannot be easy for us to have an interview with them, we left their home while none was not yet there”.
However, the watchman revealed that people come at Rwigara’s and take them, and bring them back at a given time.
