President Yoweri Museveni has given Inspector General of Police Okoth Ochola a chilling ultimatum: You either do your work or I will do it myself!
Museveni disclosed the ultimatum he gave to the IGP himself this Monday at The president was speaking today at the NRM secretariat at Plot 10 Kyadondo Road in Kampala where he was handing over motorcycles to the parish chairpersons of the NRM across the country.
The president then elaborated what had triggered his unusual ultimatum to the national police boss: “There was a violence in Bukono county [Namutumba district] where people were beaten. I got information that Police has not done much work. Some (policemen) have been arrested and given police bond; there is no police bond for somebody who has attacked Ugandans!”
Museveni vowed to deal with all persons who messed up the party primaries.
He also said that the state minister of Labor, Mwesigwa Rukutana who was captured on camera attempting to shoot people over the weekend in Ntugamo after he lost the Rushenyi primaries, will be charged with threatening violence and attempted murder.
He called upon all those who were dissatisfied with the results of the elections to write petitions to the regional panels of elders which he said are going to be constituted to hear all election complaints.
Museveni’s speech came shortly before that of Justine Kasule Lumumba, the secretary general of the NRM who called upon the president to reign in some of senior people who with impunity were freely changing the results of the elections.
