FDC’s mouth piece Semujju Nganda has watered down President Museveni’s Compensation pledges to the Victims of  the November 18 riots that broke out in Uganda’s major towns after the arrest and detention of National Party Platform (NUP) Presidential Candidate Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi wine.

 

While addressing the nation On Sunday on state of affairs, Security and state of Covid -19 in the country, President Museveni revealed that victims of the riots are going to be compensated provided they were not involved in the riots further tasking the police to conduct a through investigation and present a report to verify the victims of the riots that left over 54 People dead and several others nursing injuries across the country .

“We shall compensate all the victims of the protest and their properties if they can be verified will be compensated, but the blame should be put on leaders who don’t follow the set COVID-19 guidelines a threat to lives of innocent Ugandans,” Museveni noted.

During the Address

Museveni blamed the rioters saying even though their candidate Kyagulanyi was arrested, they should have waited for him to go to court like he eventually did instead of crushing government properties. “The feeling that Kyagulanyi is untouchable because he is a politician and prompts people to riot must never be repeated.”

However Museveni’s statements seemed to have not gone well with the Kira Municipality member of parliament Semujju who noted that the compensation cannot bring back the lives that were lost in the scuffles.

“I expected Museveni to come out and apologize to Ugandans on behalf of police and the army that took part in terrorizing Ugandans instead of threatening and intimidating people with sorts of threats, money cannot bring the lives that were lost” Semujju noted

How can someone kill your family and they then pledge to compensate you, does money bring back the dead? Semujju questioned

Museveni  further warned opposition members  attacking police saying  in spite of the weakness of the officers that allows impunity of lawlessness to persist,

”The overall security posture of Uganda is robust and that is where people (like these rioters) make miscalculations; You will be defeated.” He noted
