A secret plan by the state and its actors to block by arrests and detentions elected leaders of the National Unity Platform days to their swearing-in has stalled following conflict of interests and wrangles in security organs.
Undercover reports have established that whereas parliament has set dates for for a smooth swearing in exercise of all MPs- elect within this month, top officials in security who are acting on behalf of the mafias within the government have issued commands to their juniors to put under house arrests, detain a section of the opposition leaders elect particularly those from NUP in order to block them from taking oaths of allegiance for their elected positions.
Some of the planned to block leaders are Mityana municipality MP elect Francis Zaake Butebi, Meard Lubega Ssegona, David Sserukenya – Makindye Ssabagabo, party Spokesperson Joel Ssenyonyi, hospitalized Mohammed Ssegirinya, Kampala WMP elect Shamim Malende, Makindye west MP elect Livingston Allan Ssewanyana among others.
Information gathered by this website shows that whereas there are plans to block the legislators, factions between police and the military have risen on implementing these orders, each arguing that the exercise is being invented to serve the interests of the other.
Credible sources within the NUP accuse police of conniving with the RDCs to print and litter in riot prone urban areas containing “Anti-Museveni Swearing-in messages and purport them to Kyagulanyi supporters.
The sources say police and the military wants to use the “masterminded” protest messages as an execuse to put under siege opposition leaders until the Swearing-in exercise is done.
Further reports alleges that police will enforce stringent traffic rules and designate long-route traffic diversions on routes known to be used to prominent opposition leaders on the days of Swearing-in to delay them reach to ceremony venue on time.
According to information at parliament, taking of oaths of allegiance for new MPs will commence on May 17 and and will run for four concurrent days.
