Dr Kizza Besigye on Thursday held a news conference at his office in Kampala, addressing the media about the political tensions in the country and unrest specifically accusing the government for insecurity and aiming to create a state of emergency in the country.
Gun violence has taken its toll in the country in the past few years unknown assistants shooting people most notably those in high offices.
Talking to the media, Besigye said he’s got credible information from his sources with reliable intelligence information in and out of government both acknowledging the allegations.
“The 2016 was a water shake of some sort and the president Museveni realized his stay in to power was shaking. What happened forced him to form a state of insecurity that will bring about a state of emergency in the country.
He added that there are planned fights among opposition to cause fear among people “this has been planned for a longtime through means of poisoning and other undetected ones, conflicts within the opposition will give platform for the assassinations as you all know it happened in arua portraying a conflict between myself and Hon kyagulanyi (Bobi Wine). What was to happen in arua was to kill Bobi Wine and arrest me for his death”. Besigye implied.
When asked the basis of his words by journalists, Besigye replied by saying it’s credible information and has taken his time to verify it.
“There’s circumstantial evidence and everything shows this the current situation. I don’t just talk recklessly Bobi Wines driver was killed in his vehicle and that’s clear evidence.
As it should be remembered that recently some MPs said they have been receiving threatening messages by unknown people and Dr Besigye cited such claims as used by the government to create a state of emergency. Saying that the threats are real.
