His Excellency Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, the president of Uganda has come out today and confirmed that Bobi Wine and his opposition members attacked him and his NRM team. However, the Kyadondo East MP and his opposition members were campaigning alongside different competitors in Arua Municipality.
Following allegations about the death of Bobi Wine’s driver, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni had to come up with some statement to lower people’s anger and perish out the evil accusations on the NRM party. He posted this on social media some few hours back.
Museveni cleared the air that Bobi Wine and the fellows attacked his car.
Now, photos of the president’s car circulated all over the Internet while broken at the back view. This implied that people from the opposition threw stones and broke the rear glass window of the car which shocked many Ugandans.
This is the statement Museveni made on Facebook.
‘Countrymen, countrywomen and, especially, Bazukulu (grandchildren).
I always insist on singling out the grandchildren because I want them to be conversant with our rich experiences spanning a period of 58 years.
I understand that some of our people were worried about the endless criminal acts of elements of the Opposition, including the incidents of Arua on Monday.
The elements of the Opposition, including Kassiano Wadri, Kyagulanyi (Bobi Wine) and others, who stoned our convoy, including my vehicle.
The stones they threw broke the rear glass window of the car, where I put some luggage. That window glass is not armoured. There was no harm on the old man with a hat.
It is a big shame to have such confused people who want to use violence to intimidate Ugandans. Nobody has a right to intimidate any Ugandan by word or action.
Fortunately, my convoy did not react with fire in response to this attack. This was because we were not equipped for anti-riots. Our intervention could have resulted into people’s death because we only had live bullets.
Unfortunately, this crowd, with a tinga tinga (a grader), apparently continued to the town where they attacked people who were coming from the NRM rally.
They injured quite a number of people with stones. It was in those scuffles that one of the attackers was shot dead. This is due to the weak management by the Police and the criminal behaviour of some of the Opposition leaders.
Why take supporters in processions through congested streets? The legal thing is to go for the rally at the agreed venue and, after the rally, everybody disperses to his/her home.
Processions are illegal and the NRM leaders should not be part of them because they inconvenience the public.
Some leaders have been acting with impunity and it has caused the death of one in Bugiri and, now, one person in Arua. These acts are strongly rejected and will be punished according to the law. Anybody who organizes such groups is responsible for their misconduct.
We went to the bush to fight for the right of making political decisions by Ugandans without intimidation by word or action. Anybody who threatens this will have himself to blame.
Yoweri Kaguta Museveni
