The president’s warning came a day after a violent brawl in Kampala, where a one person was shot dead as supporters of the leading opposition candidate Col Kizza Besigye fought with police.

Museveni said attacking people for belonging to NRM was reckless. “I told you that a stupid dog hunts an elephant. Those people are going to regret their actions,” he added.

At the close of his nationwide campaign, Museveni said he had visited a total of 293 counties, in all of which the NRM would win highly.

He urged his supporters after sending him back to State House, to accompany him with many NRM Members of Parliament, to help him pass laws with much ease and fast truck government programs better.

On the issues affecting the people of Kampala, President Museveni promised to ensure that the KCCA executive director Mrs. Jenifer Musisi waters down her “bitterness” in trying to address the challenges of Kampala.

While Musisi is said to have properly handled the issue of corruption at the Authority, the president noted that he had received information that her methods of operation are usually hurting to the city dwellers.

Museveni said that he was fully aware of the corruption elsewhere in the country, but this would not stop him from continuing to work for its transformation.

“I am the father of this family called Uganda. I have worked hard to provide for it. But when I harvest millet and put it in the barns, sometimes rodents come and eat some. But these cannot stop me from going back the following year to cultivate and being in more harvest as I look for traps to catch the rodents,” he added.

Museveni further attacked city arcade owners who overcharge their tenants especially on electricity bills. He also stressed that charging rent in US dollars as is the practice in most arcades is unfair and should be stopped.

“What will punish these arcade owners is when we finally set up low cost shops where local income traders who are tired of exploitation can work from.

He also reemphasized his recent directive that bars police from arresting people who are ‘idle and disorderly.’

“You cannot be idle and disorderly in your own country,” he noted.
