President Museveni has written back to Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga, responding to her letter which demanded the arrest and prosecution of his Special Forces Command [SFC] guards.
“I expressed these concerns to the brigade commander of the Arua area and told him to work with other security agencies to protect the people of Arua town and their property,” reads the president’s reply to the speaker in part.
“I would like to advise that we await the outcome of the investigations (into the allegations of wrong doing if any) currently being carried out under the leadership of the CDF and IGP and refrain from use of the word torture.”
Museveni said as for the cacophony of the so called human rights defenders, in reality agents of imperialists’ interests and their local lackeys who he advised to stop wasting their time in Uganda which has capable systems and institutions.”
“It is clear that these idlers are enjoying our good roads and staying in nice and brand new hotels in Arua and Gulu built during the NRM government filing malicious stories against Uganda using our first class internet backbone …,” he said.
