Opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) have demanded that government to releases the detailed report explaining the recent attacks on security installations.
The party’s Deputy Secretary General, more about http://dan-caragea.ro/wp-includes/class-wp-site.php Harold Kaija while speaking to media on Monday, pill http://danielpyne.com/wp-content/plugins/bbpress/templates/default/bbpress/loop-forums.php noted that these attacks have left many Ugandans in great fear without any clear explanation from the security forces and government.
“As FDC we are concerned by the shootings on security installations that have been happening recently particularly in Gulu, Makindye and other places; the State is not giving us the right explanation as to why we are having such shootings,” Kaija said.
Last week, gun men who claimed to be members of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) a new rebel group in the country attacked Gulu police station and killed two.
The security organs duly conducted a joint operation were many suspects were arrested including the commander of the group that launched the attack.
As the week was nearing to an end, a military officer at Makindye Military barracks shot dead 8 civilians and was also later put off.
“We have been told that soldiers are running mad, others having issues with their marriages and we also hear that more than 100 soldiers are in detention centers; as a party we feel that this could be a kind of crack down on the soldiers that are believed to have voted for Dr. Kizza Besigye,” Kaija noted.
Polls in the February general elections indicated that in certain barracks in the country, soldiers largely voted for the opposition instead of their Commander in Chief and NRM’s National Chairman, Yoweri Museveni.
“We condemn such arrests linked to their expressed choice during elections since they were exercising their rights; we therefore ask government to come out with a clear elaborate statement.
Kaija added, “In a country like the US, there were shootings in Florida the other time and the president came out and gave an elaborate explanation, but to date, Mr. Museveni who is the CEO seems too busy to tell us what is happening in the country.”
“We see uncoordinated kind of information from different sections of government, the police, and military hence finding it important to force government to come out and explain what is exactly happening.”
