President Museveni on Tuesday gave a silent order for the arrest of ministers and the ruling party NRM MPs who are distributing food and other items.
Museveni says MPs distributing items are interfering with the coronavirus fight.
“How do you arrest MP Francis Zaake and leave these ones of NRM including ministers who are also distributing items?”
“We’ll have to learn from these bad experiences. This will have to be looked into.”
Museveni who also spoke on Shs20m money to MPs, said this was “bad planning”.
“It is morally incomprehensible and unacceptable for MPs to give themselves money.”
He said the other politicians who were “donating” should have been arrested too not just Mityana Municipality legislator Zaake.
He asked about the guidelines under which they were distributing items instead of leading by example and not “mixing up the population”.
Zaake remains in detention at Special Investigation Unit (SIU) in Kireka.
While launching the 2019 Annual Crime Report, Inspector General of Police Martin Okoth Ochola said Zaake is still ‘safely’ in the hands of police because he arrogantly refused to sign the police bond.
Ochola said there is no way he can be released without him signing on the bond forms. He warned leaders against spearheading law breaking.
