I write directly to you because you can reach the president any time you want to please deliver the following message.
a) The death of ASP Ariong (RIO) is regrettable. But responsibility for his death should be placed on the shoulders of IGP General Kayihura or whoever he deployed to confront the group of politicians.
b) General Kayihura has failed the country with his poor tactics including issuing illegal orders to the police. For example, he has told police to drive their cars into politicians s it happened when Hon Nabila was injured. The IGP has continued to deployed heavily armed policemen who end shooting ‘stray bullet’ that kill and/or maim Ugandans.
c) Let the president declare that from this point on, police would not be deployed to police or confront peaceful marchers. Indeed police should stay away from such activities completely and let those responsible for them take care of security. I know that the politicians in questions can appeal to their mobs to police themselves and keep out unruly gangs. If this is implemented, the unnecessary death of Ugandans or police at the hands of police during duty will be minimized.
d) If there is need for police at such events, those police officers deployed must not carry any guns. The video in which ASP Ariong was killed shows total chaos with police in different kinds of uniforms. It is very likely that such police units hardly know each and could have fired the bullet or the ‘stray item’ that killed the inspector. I repeat there is no need for live bullets at such events.
e) You should tell president Museveni to retire IGP Kayihura and his sidekick Turyagumanawe in public interest. General Kayihura has become a disgrace to the country and should be removed immediately.
f) So the bottom line is this: let Dr Besigye, Lord Mayor Lukwago and their sidekicks walk, inspect projects, or greet the people without any intervention from police. Police should stay away completely from such events to avoid the death of more Ugandans. Because of General Kayihura’s stupidity, he has not allowed the opposition politicians to demonstrate that they are capable of walking or protesting and do so without destroying or looting people’s property. It is time to test the opposition to see if they can keep law and order. But this cannot happen when the IGP provokes them all the time
g) If you meet General Kayihura tell him that there is life outside police or army. On a serious note General Kaiyihura’s stupidity is hurting your ability to sell your Akiba bonds. As long as he is the IGP, the risk and thus demand for your bonds will continued to be at a discount. So tell him to go and do other things. He can go and rear “embatta”/ducks or whatever.
Dr Besigye has played the police silly. They look total fools some of them are. I saw when they stopped Hon Nabilah from walking from her house! But Dr Besigye should be careful-he is exposing himself too much- now that the Deputy IGP and Deputy Police spokesperson have vowed to avenge the death of the late Ariong (RIP). My sense is that IGP Kayihura and his police will plunge Uganda into a calamity.
Judith Nabakooba was caught on the video promising to revenge both in English and Luganda. Like I told General Saleh, IGP Kaiyihura is the most dangerous man in uniform. Him and his sidekicks are out to do damage. Well, you have it now.
And they are not done. But they better be careful because YKM will pounce and fire them. Deputy IGP Ochola is playing with fire. And so is Judith Nabakooba.
Now let those tycoons sue the police. Take them to court. For too long Ugandans have slept on their rights. That must end. Go and sue for damages.
I think the ‘’panda gari’’ was planned by IGP Kayihura, Deputy IGP OChola and legitimized by the police deputy spokesperson who is caught on tape telling the press that police would revenge. If I may ask, what is the police motto in Uganda? It surely cannot be near something like to serve and protect.
But she should never again be seen using ‘’boda boda’’ as we saw in Redpepper. If she is stupid enough to use a boda boda she will pay a heavy price.
Can MPs or whatever committe is in charge of police summon the police to explain their actions. In the meantime those tortured should sue the state/police. Ugandans must stop sleeping on their rights and giving the Nabakoobas, Ocholas and Kayyohuras comfort.
Granted the courts may be in the hands of NRM cadres but there still are a few brave souls on the bench.
The people missing are Ugandan lawyers? Who are the equivalents of Kenya’s Paul Muite, Gibson Kamau Kuria, James Orengo, Kiraitu Murungi, Dr John Khaminwa, Martha Karua, GBM Kariuki etc among Ugandan lawyers?
The police is getting away with murder because the lawyers are not taking them on. They need to sue and sue the police and tie them in litigation. One of these days, they will find a competent judge who will send a message to the police.
Once again Ugandans must stop sleeping on their rights. That is the problem with Ugandans. They get screwed over and over and take no action. Helll wake the people up.
Initially I thought those bazungu were perhaps diplomats kumbe.
