The General’s statement comes at a time of increased public outcry over the highhandedness of KCCA in evicting low-income traders from the city and demolishing their structures.

“They are the people who housed us, gave us food, provided us with intelligence and offered their all to create a better future. Nobody has a right to abuse them,” warns Tinyefuza.

“Our women must not be stripped and beaten and whoever does it will become the new enemy,” he observed in a statement published by Daily Monitor on Monday.

Tinyefuza further states that the country is witnessing a lot of violence, disruption of social life and general apprehension of the people of Uganda.

“The population is beginning to feel unsure about the future and generally insecure. This is a complete reversal of the feeling and belief which our people had when they defeated dictatorship,” says tinyefuza, one of NRA war heroes that liberated Uganda from fallen dictators Milton Obote and Idi Amin.

“Therefore, this is a call to all those involved in the management of public affairs to reflect and pull back a little to make sure they fully understand where the country is going, current forces at play and the challenges that face us. Let us not destroy all that has been achieved over years,” says Tinyefuza.

He maintains that the violence against the population by those permitted by the law to protect the people must stop.

The UPDF general says politicians using the coercive organs of the state to enrich themselves must also stop.

“Those unguided and also misguided actions are resulting in so much anarchy and indiscipline in the country, murders, mob justice, land grabbing by the rich, sickening robberies of government money and assets sugar-coated as “corruption” and other social ills. Politicians can fight their political wars but should leave the people of Uganda in peace,” he notes.

Tinyefuza asserts the poor people of Uganda should be treated humanely and should not be flogged on the streets.

“While the rich are cleaning streets so that their big cars don’t step on the rubbish, our poor masses are sleeping on empty stomachs, sleeping in open spaces without houses, sleeping in and actually eating the rubbish being swept off the streets.”

He adds: “Yes, development is good but development must be planned, it must not be anti-people and fascist methods must never be used against our people and in any case, that situation is not sustainable and it never has been.”

This has been perceived as a veiled attack on KCCA Executive Director Jennifer Musisi whose violent eviction campaigns have left hundreds in Kampala jobless and “hungry” thus creating an era of insecurity.

“These actions can lead to very serious insecurity and destabilization of the whole country. Therefore, those involved should watch out. They must remember that Uganda has passed through a lot, achieved a lot and can still take care of its own should need arise,” warns Tinyefuza.

“Let us all work together to reverse this trend. Uganda belongs to all of us and let us own it and be happy in it. Restraint please,” concludes Tinyefuza.

Army spokesperson Col Felix Kulayigye was not readily available for comment.
