President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, also NRM presidential candidate has described supporters of Independent candidate Amama Mbabazi who recently beat up NRM supporters in Ntungamo as thugs.
Museveni told a press conference at the state lodge in Mbale on Sunday that he will personally deal with them.
He said it was a big mistake for Mbabazi supporters to beat NRM supporters saying they will regret. â€œIf you put your hands in the anus of a leopard, you are in trouble,\" said Museveni.
//Cue in: â€œNow, the other man...
Cue out: ...hunting for them.â€//
