My name is Gideon Muthaghomoka,i am ugandan by nationality,who lives here in the Republic of South Africa as a political Refugee. I first lived in Nairobi and reported myself to UNHRC of Nairobi branch and i was granted a refugee status based on my case.Before i left my country(uganda) i was in prison for three years because of my political belief.I was charged with TREASON in military court martial yet i was not a military person.We tried to apply for court bail all in vain.Untill when i and six others were given conditioned Amnesty that we must go and testify in courts of law against RD COLONAL DR KIIZE BESIGYE,which we agreed to do and President Museveni orderd for our release.However,we refused to cooperate with government ,immediately we were releasesd,they re-assested us and kept in unknown prison commonly known as safehouse.I just wanted to let u know about my case.my main concern is that if possible i wish to be helped and meet with one of the consultant from your office so that i can be able tell my story in details and see how a person of my case can be helped.I will be gratefull if my request meets your favourable consideration. My cellphone number is:0789172274. I wish you all the best of lack Enjoy your day
