We therefore appeal to the abductors of Mr. Kuteye to release him unconditionally without delay.

We similarly call on law enforcement agencies to leave no stone unturned to secure the release of Kuteye soonest should his abductors hedge.

We regret that journalists, who are always at the forefront in the battle for social change, accountability, transparency in governance and social justice should be made the victim of the vices they stood against.

Please, and please, we plead with abductors of our colleague to release him without further day!
