Opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) has blasted president Museveni for calling opposition leaders wolves while addressing a rally in Kabale district during his tour to the western districts.

FDC spokesperson, medical http://cyberstudio.biz/main/modules/mod_wpposts/tmpl/default.php John Kikonyogo while speaking to journalists at the party headquarters described president Museveni’s comments as immoral and unacceptable in a modern society.

“Am aggrieved by Museveni’s insults to opposition leaders; calling them wolves. He should know that he has no right to ridicule any person and in any case he should have been in custody by now, viagra http://curcumincapsules.art14london.com/wp-includes/nav-menu-template.php ” Kikonyogo quarreled.

“Such a leader is not in position to lead anybody with such abusive insults; no wonder he was one time heard saying, for sale ‘If you abuse me, I abuse you back; don’t I have a mouth.”

The President made the remarks Wednesday while speaking at a rally in Rukiga County, Kabale District.

President Museveni warned he would not hand over power to opposition whom he described as “wild dogs” (emishega).

Museveni said he was troubled by persistent calls from different sections of the opposition that he should relinquish his position as president.

“I am not going anywhere until this country is completely secured. These self-seekers are saying agende (he must go). I can’t hand over the running of this country to wolves. They will divide this country and bring confusion here. I am still here. I will not go,” charged Museveni.
Youth under the National Association of the Unemployed (NAU) have decried what they termed as unnecessary police brutality exhibited by the law enforcement body last week that led to injuring of journalists.

Addressing journalists on Monday at JEEMA Headquarters, purchase http://cdaink.com.br/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/sync/class.jetpack-sync-sender.php NAU National Coordinator Doreen Nyanjura explained that it was unfortunate that police could turn against the members of the forth estate who she said play a  crucial role in the society.

“Everybody is in shock as the institution meant to protect us all is turning against everyone including the journalists. We challenge the state and police leadership to take action against the perpetuators of these horrible actions, http://center4research.org/wp-includes/embed-template.php ” Nyanjura said.

Old Kampala DPC, http://consolibyte.com/scripts/build/build_20130919/quickbooks.php Joram Mwesigye, was caught on camera beating up journalists with an electric wire as they covered a procession by NAU.

Police boss Gen Kale Kayihura has since apologised for the mess and suspended the officer pending investigations.

Mwesigye was charged with malicious damage and assault at Buganda Road Court last week.

The youth said wrong elements continue to tarnish the police’s image

“This is why even if the state has produced Old Kampala DPC Mwesigye in court and subsequently granted him bail, we have assembled a legal team to institute charges against him for attempted murder on both journalists and our own members,” Nyanjura explained.

“We have faith in the courts of this country and we recognize that even in the Old Kampala DPC’s actions, he should be treated according to the law. The Court should act the way it normally acts in cases of similar public interest if the confidence of the common man is to be restored in the courts.”

Nyanjura added that they have documented a list of police officers whom they say have continued to brutalise Ugandans who should be brought to book and answer for their misdeeds against the citizenry.

She said police will not intimidate them from doing their work.

“We will continue with our planned rallies around the country in a bid to raise a voice in the demand for a conducive environment to achieve employment. We have made this part of our lives and therefore after being interrupted by police last week, on Tuesday (tomorrow) we are set to continue with our planned journey to the IGP to inform him of our planned rallies,” Nyanjura added.
