The youth led by Habib Mboowa had planned to hand over chicks to the President as part of his retirement package, stressing that its time he relinquished power for failure to address their problems.

“The only aspect that the president has always boasted about is security but of late things have become worse with the killing of Muslim clerics. The NRM government has failed to address problems affecting youth,” Mboowa explained.

Mbabazi has since maintained he will not contest for president in 2016 but is yet to disassociate himself from the activities of his adherents.

During the festive season, Mbabazi said he would soon announce his next political step after being toppled as Secretary General of NRM and sacked as Prime Minister.

Such innuendos have pushed Museveni’s strategists to the edge and heightened political tensions within the ruling party.

According to the youth, most of the government positions are occupied by the aged NRM cadres which they said has denied them a chance to have a share on the national cake.

“Government should at least have 90 percent of the positions occupied by the youth but this is not the case as almost all are above 50 years. The youth have not been left with opportunity to serve and work for their country .The President, after sacking Mbabazi, replaced him with Rugunda who is equally old. That state of affairs is unfortunate,” added Mboowa.

However, anti-riot police led by CPS Operations commander Aaron Baguma immediately moved in to arrest the activist, thus sparking off a physical confrontation.

In an interview with ChimpReports, CPS DPC Henry Kintu explained that they got intelligence information that the youth intended to cause chaos in the business district and therefore had to act swiftly against them.

“We are still carrying out investigations before taking them to court for prosecution but we shall charge them with inciting violence,” Kintu explained.
