Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has dared Bobi Wine saying that his government is stable and he can’t allow people to cause chaos and violence. Museveni has today revealed some of his tactics that he has been using to destroy his perceived enemies. He said that because of misbehaviour and plots to stop the elections, he deployed his security forces.
In the case of Kampala he brought in a commando unit that had been exemplary in Somalia. They killed a few terrorists who were there like the ADF. His commando quickly defeated the terrorists who want to disturb the elections. Some were killed and others were arrested.
He also defended his government saying that the talk on the disappearances should be ignored because it can’t happen under his NRM regime. He added that under NRM, even if a mistake is made, it will be discovered or answered quickly. He said that his point about that should be clear to the Ugandans.
“The lawbreakers & criminals are the ones that forced us to deploy the army to support Police. For instance, upon deployment- The Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI) arrested some criminals and that explains some disappearances. The talk of disappearance should be ignored. It can’t happen under the NRM. I heard there is quite a bit of stampede of disappearance in the papers. Every Ugandan under the NRM will be accounted for, “the President added.
Museveni further asked security to avail a list of those in custody so that they put an end to the talk of disappearance.
” There were people who were arrested by CMI. They were in 2 categories which involved 177 who were granted bail or released. Another are 65 still being investigated. Their names should be made public so that this talk of disappearance is answered.
” The UPDF is a very disciplined force. When we took over Kampala, many didn’t run away because the NRA was a people’s force. Not a single shot was fired when we took over Kampala. We never touched Uganda House, UPC property.Please, don’t mix us up (UPDF) with such low calibre conduct (kidnaps).”
Museveni’s address follows the current wave of kidnaps in the country. Most victims are allegedly supporters of National Unity Platform (NUP) political party headed by former presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine.
