Museveni: Gen Katumba’s Attack was Politically Motivated

Published

on


President Museveni has said that the attack on General Katumba Wamala was politically motivated.

The President was speaking after the budget reading on Thursday at Kololo Independence Grounds.

According to President Museveni, the attack was a definite political motive, and they will know who was behind the attack. He says that people who use assassination are not sure of themselves.

Museveni explained that as the National Resistance Movement (NRM), they never use assassination but rather prefer preserving even their opponent.

He told MPs that there are many people he would have killed because they were annoying him, citing Dokolo Woman MP Cecilia Ogwal whom he said had a bad tongue and former Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) President Dr Kiiza Besigye.

The President also tasked the Internal Affairs Minister-designate General David Muhoozi to fast track the installation of digital monitors in every vehicle and motorbike. He said that the project that was being handled by Gen Elly Tumwine, and Gen Katumba Wamala was delayed.

The President also said that they have already strengthened the forensic capacity to detect criminality.

Museveni also gave an update on Gen Katumba’s attack, saying that they left behind a piece of cloth that was unfortunately picked by unknown people.

The General Court Martial has finally granted bail to Ali Bukeni better known as Nubian Li and Eddy Ssebufu also known as Eddie Mutwe, all close confidants of National Unity Platform principal Robert Kyagulanyi.

The duo has been under incarceration having been arrested in November 2020 as Presidential campaigns heated up over charges related to possession of fire arms.

They had been seeking bail on many occasions but their requests were always quashed by prosecution on different grounds.

Recently, General Court Martial Chairman Lt. Gen. Andrew Gutti released 14 of the arrested members of the NUP on grounds that they were sick and needed medical attention which they couldn’t get in prison.

21 others were however sent back to jail.

In today’s session, The Tower Post understands that a total of 18 people were freed at a non-cash bail of UGX 20million each.
