Members of parliament have called on Ugandans to treat president Yoweri Museveni as part of the suspects that participated in the killing of Bobi Wine’s driver Kawuma Yasin in Arua.
MPs were debating the incident that happened in Arua on Monday evening in which president Yoweri Museveni convoy was also attacked and the driver of Kyadondo East member of parliament hon Bobi Wine was shot dead.
In the plenary chaired by the speaker Kadaga Rebecca, several MPs across political divide regretted the incident that took place in Arua.
Lwemiyanga MP Theodre Ssekikubo said the president should be treated as part of the criminals that caused the chaos in Arua unless he has been exonerated by an independent team of investigators because he was near crime scene during the incident. The MP further added that by the fact the government alleged that the scuffle started after an attack on presidential convoy, it implies that the president could have ordered for the killing of innocent and unarmed civilians.
Buliisa county member of parliament Hon Birahwa Stephen Mukitale told the parliament that, political parties should not be used as means to divide the people and asked the country to embrace dialogue and play mature politics.
He asked the ruling party not to treat the oppositions and minority groups in parliament as their enemies.
Busiro South member of parliament Hon Medard Ssegona asserted that president Museveni acted unpresidential by ordering his motorcade to drive through the already charged crowds who were opposition supporters.
Hon Francis Mwijukye says due to facts that journalists were arrested and charged with inciting violence for reporting the real issues that were taking place on the ground indicates that the government was hiding something sinister from the population.
Hon Oketayot Lowilla says the president statement showed that he does not value the life of other people who were lost in Arua during the scuffle.
