Wakiso Resident District commissioner (RDC) Rose Kirabira has dismissed claims that that government is involved with the abductions and detentions without trial of people by masked armed men currently being reported in major towns within the country.

Kirabira says that the NRM government cannot abduct its people yet this was one of the atrocities that took President Yoweri Museveni and his colleagues to the fight which ousted the Obote government in 1986.

A number of people in Kampala and other parts of the country have of recent been reported missing and abducted by masked gunmen travelling in tinted vehicles without registration number plates and indeed some have already been confirmed dead.

President Yoweri Museveni recently apologized to the nation for the brutal killing of one Isaac Sennyange alias Zebra Mando a Bwaise based boxer who was shot in the head by armed men who allegedly invaded his home late in the night. Museveni said that he was personally taking interest in Mando’s murder after realizing that it was security men who erroneously ended his life. Mukono Municipality MP Bety NAmbooze subsequently asked why if it was government security personnel that Sennyange dead, they left the body and took off like robbers or murderers instead of taking it for proper process.

Kirabira says that it is not worthy for Ugandans to support opposition candidates who have no experience in leadership and leave the government which has been in power for more than 30 years and therefore having all the experience to protect their lives and property. 

She says that as member of the security team, she has never attended or heard of a meeting that discussed or planned to abduct Ugandans.

Cue out: .. era nga tubalaza wa?” //  

Kirabira has assured Ugandans that each of them will vote for the candidate of their choice as long as they are registered as voters but warned them against contradicting the guidelines issued by the electoral commission.

She also stressed the need to avoid making threats as some people have, saying that the end results may not be good to the culprits.

Cue out: .. ffe twagala mirembe,” //  

However, Medard Lubega Seggona insists that it is the NRM government which is abducting and arresting the people it thinks have divergent political viewsto what it believes in. He is challenging the regime to accept change and allow Uganda to have a peaceful transition via the 14th January elections.

Cue out: .. kusiba nannansi balala,” //
