MP’S GIVE GOVERNMENT ULTIMATUM ON KAWEESI MURDER

By UTN Reporter

Parliament - A selection of Members of Parliament have given Government up to three weeks to issue a report detailing the state of security in the Country.

The Legislators led by Hon Gilbert Oulanyah have also threatened to issue a report if the Minister for security doesn’t provide one.

The MP’s ultimatum comes hardly a week after Police mouth piece AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi was gunned down by unknown assailants, in a chain of about 12 people murdered in a space of five years.

Shadow defense minister Gilbert Oulanya says they have done independent investigations and their report is ready for release if government does not issue one.

Oulanya says the Government report on the killings in Kampala, Gulu and Wakiso is important as it would provide a basis for a solution to the killings Byte-Oulanya

He threatens that the group will compile a list of all Ugandans that have been brutally gunned down in these killings, and table it in Parliament to force Government give a response.

He adds that all leaders now live under fear for their lives at all times.

Kasese Municipality MP Robert Centenary blames the current security to Government’s laxity, giving space to gun wielding criminals inflict pain and fear on Ugandans.

Centenary says the security apparatus of the Country is spread enough to curtail crime right from the villages, but due to laxity all systems have been compromised. Byte-Centenary

Meanwhile Lwemiyaga MP Theodore Ssekikubo condemned legislators for being silent as murders continue to rock the country.

Ssekikubo demanded that Parliament be called out of recess to discuss the security situation in the country and demand a government response to the same.
