Museveni: If you want war, you’ve touched leopard’s tail

Museveni at Independence day celebrations

“If you want to start a war, you come out and openly declare just like we did as NRA,” President Museveni challenged murderers while presiding over Independence Day celebrations in Kyotera district.

Museveni who had earlier launched CCTV cameras at Nateete police station, said murderers are not fighters because fighters do not hide.

“Now they (murderers) have touched the tail of the leopard and they will see what is going to happen to them,” he joked while addressing Ugandans at Kasasa Sub-county grounds in Kyotera.

The president has since been nicknamed leopard because of his endless references to the dangerous member of the cat family while warning opponents.

He said Uganda is on the ascent and nobody can destabilise it no matter how hard they try.

“We have built a strong and professional army that can defeat any unrest.”

He added: “We have strengthened the army especially in dealing with the international terrorism.”

He said the people who fight his government now have fear because they see Uganda has power.

“What was missing has been implemented. Roads have been made. We are also going to work on the Kyotera road just like we have worked on others elsewhere.”

He said that foundation he built has made the economy grow.

“We shall defeat those who fight us just like we defeated them in the past wars.”

He said part of the problem is lack of awareness. People in rural areas do not know that they have work for money just like they work for food.

He called upon leaders to wake up on the issue of agriculture. He said government has instituted a number of programmes that will help the agricultural sector such as irrigation.
