President Yoweri Museveni has warned those perpetrating insecurity in the country to stop or else he deals with them.
He issued the warning during his last campaigns for Moses Walyomu Muwanika, the National Resistance Movement (NRM) party candidate in the Kagoma county MP by-elections on Tuesday evening at Butagaya Sub county headquarters.
His warning comes at a time some parts of the country such as Luweero, Masaka and Lwengo districts are experiencing attacks from criminal gangs. Prior to the attacks, the thugs drop anonymous letters notifying residents about their mission.
Recently, some of the thugs dropped a letter at the home of the Vice President, Edward Ssekandi in Kizungu village next to Hotel Zebra in Katwe-Butego division, Masaka Municipality asking him to join them to fight Museveni.
The Kagoma MP seat fell vacant in March this year after three Court of Appeal Justices including Fredrick Engonda -Ntende, Paul Mugamba and Alfonse Owiny-Dollo annulled the election of Moses Walyomu over voter bribery.
They overturned an earlier decision by Jinja High Court that had dismissed the evidence of voter bribery presented by Walyomu’s rival, Alex Brandon Kintu. Electoral Commission nominated four candidates for the by-elections scheduled for Thursday this week.
They include NRM’s Moses Walyomu Muwanika, FDC’s Timothy Lusala Batuwa, Muhammad Bizimack Bidondole and Alex Brandon Kintu, both independents.
