Mukono Municipality Member of Parliament, Hon Betty Nambooze, says crime preventers are heading to Northern Uganda to bury alive FDC strongman, Kizza Besigye, like they did to Amama Mbabazi.
“I am getting reliable information from an insider that Crime Preventers from as far as Mukono are being mobilized to be taken to Northern Uganda to demonstrate against Dr. Besigye’s pending visit in the area,” she wrote on her social media, Facebook page.
She said the plan is to show that Besigye has lost support in the North.
“Another coffin has been purchase to “bury” Besigye,” she wrote.
She urged Besigye’s team to investigate the report and take the necessary preventive measures.
Not long ago, Crime preventers in Gulu district were mobilised by Aruu County MP, Odonga Otto to stage an anti- Amama Mbabazi demonstration.
Although they later confessed having been “tricked”, Nambooze’s information seems to suggest that they are being mobilised once more for another demonstration against Besigye.
Also last month, NRM youth in Gulu bought a coffin and with police escort, buried Mbabazi alive as an expression of his unpopularity in the region.
Mbabazi was to later slam the tactic and demand an apology from NRM senior officials.
The method, which many have already termed as barbaric, seems to be new operation by government against opposition members.
Meanwhile, we yet to verify whether crime preventers are actually headed to north for the same ritual “burying people alive”.
