Former coordinator of intelligence services in the UPDF, Gen David Sejusa, says Ugandans have reached a stage where women wear underwear of dead Europeans.
Sejusa was speaking at a public rally held by FDC presidential candidate, Kizza Besigye at Nakivubo stadium on Wednesday.
He said President Yoweri Museveni has impoverished Ugandans to an unimaginable extent.
“…most of you wear second hand clothes and your women put on underwear of dead Europeans,” he said.
Sejusa even challenged the crowd to put up their hands if they were not wearing second hand clothes [of dead [people].
While there were murmurs of disapproval, very few people in the mammoth crowd were able to rise to the challenge.
He further faulted the president for failure to establish factories in the 30 years he has spent in power.
“We do not make our own shoes, that is why we are wearing dead people’s clothes, that is how you measure what Museveni has done.”
He said for example, government offers $1 per child a day in Universal Primary Education [UPE].
“Ours (the educated) earn Shs20,000 to Shs50,000 a day. A $1 child cannot compete with ours.”
Sejusa said this Universal Primary Education (UPE) child on whom the government spends $1 can’t attain a degree in a recognisable university.
He said Besigye’s campaign was not about changing a government but freeing Ugandans from slavery.
“This election should be about you not what the government decides for you.”
