Political Analyst, Charles Rwomushana, alleges that there is some powerful army General who is plotting to oust the regime of President Yoweri Museveni.
Rwomushana who once headed political intelligence at State House was responding to the brutal arrest of Kampala Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago, on Monday.
Lukwago was arrested alongside councillor, Allan Sewanyana, while trying to make his way to electoral commission offices for nomination.
“We need to analyse the footage and find who triggered the confrontation,” Rwomushana suggested.
He said violence that is contained is very dangerous and “if we continue to have that kind of scuffle the country won’t be safe”.
General plotting to oust government
Rwomushana alleged on NBS TV morning breeze programme there was a general working with Lukwago in a plot to eject President Museveni’s regime.
“…above Lukwago network is a general who wants to oust government,” Rwomushana said.
Kampala Central MP Mohammad Nsereko who was also appearing on the same show, accused Rwomushana of anticipating “what may not even be existing”.
Rwomushana then reminded Nsereko that much as he [Nsereko] is within the NRM party, the rebel legislator was running his own networks as well.
Although Rwomushana doesn’t name the alleged general plotting to remove Museveni, he said Monday’s events were not just drama.
“Uganda is on a highway to a violent conflict.”
“What is so special about Lukwago that the NRM government makes it a point to stop him, five years on?” he wondered.
Rwomushana reiterated that violence “that is contained inside is dangerous” citing a case where police fires bullets and citizens respond with stones as it happened during the arrest of Lukwago.
He said Lukwago acted as a smart pilot who decides to make a crucial decision to either brave a storm or not.
Rwomushana then condemned the Electoral Commission which he described as “NOT independent”.
“An independent EC doesn’t anticipate laws, works with existing laws.”
In one of his latest critical pieces, Rwomushana also gave an insight into Museveni’s plan C to extending grip on power.
He said Museveni’s larger grievance with former Prime Minister, Amama Mbabazi, is that Amama rumoured Museveni was preparing to sole-candidate his son Brig Muhoozi Kainerugaba for presidency.
“And that Mr Museveni is preparing to do exactly that is factually true. This is called “Muhoozi ideological orientation” epitomized in the Odrek Rwabwogo ideological manual.”
According to the critic, the primary objective is the consolidation of Uganda’s de-modernisation.
Museveni told press at State House Entebbe that he had fired Amama for spreading lies that he was grooming his son to succeed him.
