A day after the security forces issued a cautionary note to opposition supporters suspected to be planning to distort the inauguration ceremony of Gen. Yoweri Museveni, the opposition NUP party and FDC have rubbished the development saying it is another platform for police to execute a money heist.
In his claims, Fred Enanga on Monday said they had got information that opposition politicians are mobilizing youths to block the planned May 12 event. He said they were not to sit down and watch as opposition makes its subversive plans.
The former FDC party presidential candidate, Eng. Patrick Amuriat Oboi says this is another fabricated idea by police.
“Of course we are opposed to the illegal swearing in ceremony of Mr. Museveni who grabbed the people’s will by gun point,” Eng. Amuriat says. “The FDC will not recognize Mr. Museveni and his government. But what the security people are doing is an exaggeration. We don’t have such plans. We know the police are just after a mouth watering budget,” he adds.
On the other hand, the NUP party spokesperson, Joel Ssenyonyi also holds same views as Eng. Amuriat.
“They are hyping ths situation to inflate their security budget. They want money to procure teargas, and other riot equipment. We’ve seen security on several occasions parading innocent people just to push a narrative,” Ssenyonyi says. “Of course Mr. Tibuhaburwa is in panic and he may surrender taxpayers’ money to these fake security operations. Why can’t he ask himself how security retrieved the said inciting posters without instituting any arrests,” he adds.
