The Security Minister Gen. Elly Tumwine on Friday roared again and vowed to crash supporters of the National Unity Platform party who are allegedly planning to destabilise the country.

“We shall deal with any intimidation. We are stronger than you can imagine”
Gen Tumwine further adds that nobody is exempted from arrest and that Robert Kyagulanyi (Bobi Wine) is neither the first Presidential candidate to be arrested nor is he the last. One person’s arrest doesn’t justify the deaths of innocent people, vandalizing of property and causing chaos in the city, he said.
“The best way to avoid being arrested is to avoid criminality. If you are a boxer and you go in the ring and they beat you hard, do you complain?” the Minister told reporters today
“We are aware some people have been training and misleading young people on how to attack Police. Get out of that because whoever is training you on this is putting your life at great risk”. Tumwine warned
The Minister also warned Ugandans against supporting elements who are advancing foreign interests, saying this will only serve the interests of these foreign powers and turn Uganda into Libya.
“We have evidence that most of these people are agents of foreign forces who want to destabilize African counties for their own interests. For someone who is contesting to lead Uganda, are you admiring what has happened in Libya and other countries? What a shame,” Tumwine said.
“We shall change tactics according to the situation. We have moved from the teargas to the batons. And as you saw, In 2 hours, the town was clean because it (baton) was direct to the culprits” he said
