The Minister of Security, Gen Elly Tumwine has said that the police and other security personnel have a right to kill protesters if they are attacked.
Speaking to reporters at the Uganda Media Centre in Kampala, Tumwine said that he had no apologies for anybody who was killed while attacking security forces as they tried to put down protests that broke out on Wednesday and Thursday this week. Gen. Tumwine 1 on attacks;….
Gen.Tumwine said that government will not look on as political actors supported by unnamed foreign forces are disrupting the peace.
He said that although they commiserate with
families that lost loved ones in the two days of running battles between the
security forces and supporters of National Unity Platform, Robert Kyagulanyi,
violence normally leads to deaths and destruction.
On Wednesday and Thursday, several towns, especially in the Central region, erupted in chaos after learning of the arrest of Kyagulanyi in the eastern region district of Luuka.
He called upon Ugandans to watch out for such characters and make a decision whether they still want peace or they want violence.
