Leader of Opposition in Parliament, Wafula Oguttu, has warned President Yoweri Museveni of divine consequences for allegedly betrayed bush war comrades.
Oguttu was moved by a weeping Gen David Sejusa at his thanksgiving function at his village home in Sembabule district.
Speaking at his welcome party, Sejusa said he survived being poisoned while in Luzira prison where he was being incarcerated for alleged misconduct.
Oguttu says this is not the first time a General is shedding tears curtsey of Museveni’s betrayal.
Gen Sejusa decorated with the DAMU Medal and the Luweero Triangle Medal was the coordinator of intelligence services and a senior presidential adviser to President of Uganda Yoweri Museveni.
He was also a member of High Command UPDF, the UPDF defense council and a member of parliament representing the Uganda People’s Defence Force.
He had a falling out with Museveni and formed the Freedom and Unity Front in exile in the United Kingdom following being charged for plotting a coup where he has been allegedly planning anti-government activities by the Museveni government.
“A few weeks ago I saw Gen Muntu weeping during Free my vote prayers at Najjanankumbi,” Oguttu said on Sunday.
Maj Gen Muntu served as the Commander of the Army, the highest position in the Ugandan military, from 1989 to 1998.
When the National Resistance Army was renamed the Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF), General Muntu became Commander of the UPDF.
In 2008, he unsuccessfully contested for the FDC’s presidency, against Kizza Besigye. He was elected as party president in 2012.
“A little earlier on I had read a very touching post by Rtd Col. Dr Kizza Besigye in the social media soon after he had suffered yet another episode of government persecution.”
Angry, Besigye tweeted that he felt like he could be a terrorist.
These are some compatriots of the young Ugandans who risked their lives in a bush war that brought Museveni to power 30 years ago.
These Generals, according to Oguttu, are weeping because they are being persecuted by a man they brought to power and he betrayed their revolution.
“Some Generals died very sad men. You cannot load it over the people for ever. God does not forgive that,” he said.
As if that is not bad enough, Oguttu says the same fate awaits civil servants who are being validated at Kololo Independence Grounds since the start of April 2016.
“There is the so called validation of civil servants by the Ministry of Public Service. The second time this is happening in five years. Civil servants are suffering at Kololo. They have been summoned from all over the country.”
Oguttu says some of these officials stay for even up to three days and nights in the queue seated on numbered chairs before they are served.
“Meanwhile they are harassed by the SFG soldiers who are strangely in charge of the exercise and who keep on ordering them not to move anywhere except the toilets. Others arrive as early as 4.00am.”
He said what is going at Kololo is “inhuman and totally unacceptable”.
“Why do you bring some one from Kabongo or Kisoro to Kampala for such a simple exercise? Why must everything be done in Kampala? Yes, why must a whole country have one cancer clinic only and in Kampala? That must stop.”
