Speaking for the first time on the gruesome murders while commissioning new Prisons Service Graduands at Kololo Independence grounds on Tuesday, President Museveni alleged that the murders are being orchestrated by people in political positions.
He, as usual, described the people behind the killings as “Pigs”
Museveni also inferred that there’s evidence directly connecting the murders to the Political actors, these actors Museveni said will be finished politically once the evidence comes out.
“You can imagine such people, killing old people who are 70 and 80 years in their houses, there’s no political strategy in that you’re finished now, ” Museveni said.
“I normally call such people as pigs, if you kill an 80 year old you’re a pig.”
Commenting on the summons, NUP President, Robert Kyagulanyi – Bobi Wine said, “As predicted, the Museveni regime has actualised their plan of implicating NUP leaders in the ongoing spate of murders in Greater Masaka.”
“When mister Chris Baryomunsi aluded to this last week, it looked like an absolute joke. But as we now know, anything is possible in Uganda. The will do anything possible and go to any extent to achieve their absurd objectives. In fact, there is no regime whose evil schemes can be as accurately predicted as that in Uganda,” he added.
“What I can say without contradiction, is that this new attempt will fail, like all those before. Our people just need to be vigilant and remain alert.”
