Kira Municipality MP Hon. Ssemujju Nganda says President Museveni has made himself the centre of stability in this country.

“The day Museveni leaves power, we will be in another Somalia where each General has something to control,” Nganda was appearing on NBS TV “morning breeze” programme on Wednesday.

He assured Ugandans that there will be repercussions when Museveni leaves at whatever stage.

“I looked at where one of the blasts at Bobi Wine’s house hit,” he said, referring to grenade blasts at residences of MPs Robert Kyagulanyi [Kyadondo East], Allan Ssewanyana [Makindye West] and Moses Kasibante [Rubaga North].

Nganda says Bobi Wine’s son “is like in Primary Seven” and he might not be interested in who the president is or will be.

“People who run the state must understand that radicalisation in countries is not a one day activity.”

He went on: “When Museveni’s guards [Special Forces Command] were strangling me, it’s Frank Mwesigwa [Kampala Metropolitan Police Commander] who came and told them to stop.”

Nganda was among those beaten to the point of being hospitalised when SFC soldiers raided parliament to evict members.

The injured Nganda was treated at Naggalama in Mukono where he had been detained following the arrest of suspended opposition MPs.

Nambooze says they are M23 rebels

Another badly beaten MP was Betty Nambooze [Mukono Municipality] who was admitted at Bugolobi Medical Centre.

“I have received information which I have no reason to doubt that the thugs who were imported into Parliament to torture opposition MPs are the remnants of the M23,” she said on Tuesday.

“Now I know why they acted so ruthlessly….we were dealing with foreigners.”

There have been claims that Uganda had recruited former March 23 Movement rebels who nearly toppled Congo President Joseph Kabila.

Let by Sultan Makenga, some of the remnants escaped Bihanga army barracks in Ibanda district and crossed the border back to jungles of DRC.

“No Ugandan soldiers would batter his/her MPs like that save for Katumba Wamala who served in the Anyanya army,” Nambooze maintained.

Katumba has been on the spot for punching Mityana MP Francis Zaake with an alleged intention of “killing him.”

Katumba visited Zaake at Lubaga hospital and apologised for beating him.
