Leader of opposition, Mathias Mpuuga has revealed that the killing of city blogger Isma Olaxes aka Jajja Ichuli, and last week’s assassination of Labour State Minister, Col Charles Engola speaks to the deeper problem we are facing as a country.
Olaxes was murdered at his home in Kyanja on Saturday evening as he was entering his residence.
“After the 2017 – 2018, mysterious killing of civilians in Masaka, Nansana, and Entebbe plus Muslim clerics and some prominent political leaders like the late Ibrahim Abiriga, the tired Gen Museveni assured the country that the solution to this insecurity was in installing security cameras in townships and highways, ” Mpuuga said in a statement
” More than Shs 376bn was forked out for the purpose but the killings did not stop, and no the killers have been found – including those who were on a police truck that knocked dead Ritah Nabukenya at Nakawa,” he added.
Police, he said have asked for another Shs 187bn to buy more cameras whose purpose is evidently to go after opposition politicians and supporters.
” The ADF storyline that was used in the previous killings can nolonger hold because Museveni and his spinners told us that they (ADF) were no more,”
“I hope our colleagues in the regime will open their minds to what we have been saying for this entire time and rise up against this systematic killing of Ugandans.” he said.
