Sejusa is accused of making remarks that have since rattled the army.

He said UPDF officers opposed to Brig Muhoozi Keinerugaba’s rise to presidency were targeted for assassination.

Chief of Defence Forces, Gen Aronda Nyakairima, and Minister of Defence, Crispus Kiyonga, have since denied existence of the “Muhoozi Project.”

Sources told this website that Sejusa had requested the British government for refugee citing “noticeable attempts of political persecution.”

Sejusa has been in UK since April 30. He was expected to arrive on Saturday only to postpone to an unknown date.

Police sources say Tinyefuza is not expected in Uganda during this weekend.

Army Spokesperson Lt Col Paddy Ankunda was not readily available for comment.

Foreign Affairs Permanent Secretary, Amb. James Mugume, said he was not aware of the plot.

“I have not heard about it. But our embassy in UK will crosscheck this information,” Mugume told this website on Sunday afternoon.

“You will have to contact the British High Commissioner in Uganda as well,” he added.

Foreign Embassies are usually closed on weekends.

Tumwebaze speaks out

The Minister for Presidency Frank Tumwebaze today slammed Tinyefuza “and his proxies ( Brig Kasirye Gwanga )” for unfairly targeting Brig Muhoozi, “taking advantage of his limitation as a serving soldier and therefore not able to respond to them decisively.”

He further added: “Is Muhoozi a threat to their “Political projects”, since they believe in crafting “projects”? For all intents and purposes, why should Muhoozi bother Gen Tinyefuza? Wouldn’t Gen. Tinyefuza be proud of the Muhoozi military generation, that has emerged in a more professional and technically competent way able to propel forward the institution of the UPDF, him and others take pride in to have built?”

Tumwebaze said it is high time all political actors and especially “my young political comrades raised the stakes high of political contestation so as to turn the tide of political contests degenerating into personal fights.”

He said those attacking Muhoozi are doing so unfairly and purely on selfish grounds.

“It is an arrogant act and an affront on our generation that we must resist in its entirety. We should only allow issues and not sentiments to define our political culture and behaviors. It should be competence and merit as opposed to scheming, fanning and mastering of intrigue that should form the yardstick of assessing leaders both sitting and aspiring,” said Tumwebaze.

“You need not attack Muhoozi so as to be seen as a dissenting voice against the NRM and fabricate stories of how there is a “project” to make him president, on account of mere fear and suspicion that may be one day Muhoozi may contest as President and thus threaten your ambition. That becomes sheer cowardice,” he added.

The Minister further said to oppose Museveni or the NRM for example one need not first allege how he/she is being targeted for murder/elimination when clearly, “all and sundry have known it as a fact that the NRM does not eliminate opponents.”

Tumwebaze said Gen. Tinyefuza and his “schemers” therefore, should stop fooling anybody.

“They should Come out boldly and leave by their own true political images and not by any disguised shadows. They should not seek to demonize Muhoozi because of the perceived fears they hold against him. They should wait to face him, if indeed they think he is a force to reckon with at some point in future.

“Their story of the “Muhoozi project “, is indeed no other person’s project but their own, so they should tell us why Muhoozi bothers them, that much of a great deal?”
