Panic has gripped residents of Apac district following reports of an armed gang has entered terrorizing living around Maruzi Ranch in as well as travelers on Kungu – Apac highway.

Reports indicate that seven people have so far been shot dead by the gang in the vast Maruzi Ranch located between Ibuje and Akokoro Sub Counties in the last three months and several attempted attacks made.

The latest incident happened on December 4 when two people who were traveling on a motorcycle were shot dead and their property robbed.

One Charles Otee said his relative David Martin Ongu was returning from Kampala and called his nephew to pick him from Kungu landing site with a motorcycle and as they rode home, cure http://cizgisactasarim.com/wp-admin/includes/image.php they were shot dead in the ranch.

Otee said residents of the area were annoyed that during burial, side effects http://cleanenergybiofuels.com/wp-content/themes/twentytwelve/page-templates/front-page.php no security official attended to explain the happenings in the ranch.

Maruzi ranch formerly a Beef ranch, measures up to 8000 hectares. Apac district local government in 2004 handed it over to the National Animal Genetic Resource Centre and Data Bank (NAGRC&
DB).

The land has since been occupied by squatters who have resisted eviction. Last September, the High Court in Lira issued a temporary order restraining the Apac District local government, police and the
attorney general from evicting the squatters.

Report show that numerous people are residing in the ranch including several who were displaced during the LRA insurgency and could be part of the insecurity in the area.

Apac District Police Commander Alfonse Ajangole said they have this week deployed in the area and secured it.

He said as a result of the deployment, they have recovered one gun, an AK47 and arrested one suspect.
FDC Presidential Candidate Dr Kizza Besigye has hit back at Chief of Defence Forces General Katumba Wamala, online http://cikza.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/omnisearch.php saying he will not be intimidated.

Gen Katumba last week warned that recruitment of militia groups and inciting violence would not be tolerated by the armed forces.

“Our appeal to all those seeking elective public offices is to stop this kind of rhetoric, information pills ” warned Katumba.

“We must desist from making statements that are likely to incite the public into violence. Whether in Opposition or in government.”

In response on Monday, Besigye told press in Kyegegwa, Western Uganda that, “The people talking about militias are mistaken. We are mobilising. That is what we are good at.”

Besigye insisted that his campaign of defiance will proceed as planned, irrespective of threats from security chiefs.

“We shall not accept to adhere to any directive that is unlawful or any law that deviates from the Universal Human Rights,” charged Besigye.

The FDC strongman over the weekend said he has thrice been rigged out of the presidential race but warned that this time, “We are not going to leave the football pitch if we manage to score. No one is going to steal our victory.”

Such remarks have raised concerns that Besigye could be quietly preparing his supporters for a revolution.

In Kyegegwa today, Besigye insisted that, “Our campaign is standing on four legs of defiance, liberation, restructuring of state institutions and social-economic transformation.”

He said his campaign is nothing but a “people’s struggle” and urged supporters to raise funds for the cause.

Besigye said 10 people are being recruited at village level as coordinators of grassroots structures.

The first ten will recruit ten others and the pattern will continue, according to Besigye.

This is intended to raise seven million supporters countrywide and “ensure that our victory in 2016 is in the bag.”

On facing arrest for telling people to occupy a gazetted forest in Eastern Uganda, FDC described Museveni’s warning as “irresponsible” and “careless”.

“Whereas Besigye commands a lot of support in Bududa, he neither ordered them to occupy the forest nor does he have the powers to do so,” said the party.
