The Chairman of Free Uganda (FU) and National Coordinator of Platform to Rescue Uganda (PRU), Gen David Sejusa, was planning a people’s revolution in Uganda by the time of his arrest.
Picked from his Naguru home on Saturday by military and detained at Makindye military barracks, Sejusa will be court martialled on Tuesday.
Ever since he returned from exile in UK, Sejusa has been preparing the population for a people’s revolution.
In a recent interview with a local television network, NBS, Sejusa reiterated the inevitability of a fully-fledged people power uprising in spite of the on-going brutal clamp down on opposition activists.
In the interview, General Sejusa warned Museveni that Ugandans in their millions are on course to actualise a popular revolution.
“The dictator will not be able to shoot his way back to power once the moment of his departure has come.”
Sejusa said he was confident people will rise against Museveni.
NBS TV interview:
“You saw what happened when Kizza Besigye was arrested while going to Rukungiri. People went to the police station to have him released.”
Sejusa said Museveni’s guns which he is so proud of will one day be overpowered by the people.
“People can go to that State House.”
Sejusa, a member of the UPDF high and a former director of both the external and internal security organization, fell out with the president in 2013.
The general leaked a document to the media about the alleged plan to assassinate top government officials who were against the Muhoozi project.
According to the document, there were plans to have president Museveni’s son, Brig Muhoozi Kainerugaba, also commander of Special Forces Group, to succeed him as president in 2016.

Sejusa rushed to exile in the UK close to 2 years until he unexpectedly returned in December 2014 to fight from home ground.
Gen. Sejusa told NBS that the push to have the political platform levelled through the push for electoral reforms is not enough to end the 30 year reign of president Museveni.
The soldier revealed that he is planning a people’s liberation struggle against Museveni’s regime.
The founder of freedom and Unity front, a political pressure group says that he has already started mobilizing in different parts of the country.
