Fred Kajjubi Lumbuye is a Ugandan political blogger and activist based in Turkey.[citation needed]

Arrest[edit]

On 4 August 2021, Lumbuye was reported missing from his residence in Istanbul, Turkey. Uganda's foreign affairs state minister Henry Oryem Okello confirmed in a media briefing that Lumbuye had been arrested in Turkey with nine others and were going to be deported to Uganda.[1][2] The spokesperson of the Uganda police force Fred Enanga announced on 9 August 2021 that Lumbuye had 15 charges opened against him by the government of Uganda which included spreading harmful propaganda, inciting the public to protest by sharing videos on his platform, among other cyber related crimes.[3][4][5][6]

His arrest followed earlier efforts by the government to block 14 YouTube channels and Facebook accounts which belonged to government critics and activists.[7][8][9][10]

On 17 August 2021 Uganda's foreign affairs state minister said in a press conference that Lumbuye would be taken to court. He wasn't taken.[11][12][13]

On 8 September 2021, opposition member of the Parliament of Uganda representing Kyadondo east Nkunyingi Muwada announced in a Facebook statement that he had spoken to Lumbuye in a detention center in Turkey.[14][15][16] Lumbuye was released on 19 October 2021 and is now in hiding because of the danger he might be killed or kidnapped by Ugandan operatives.[17]
