President Yoweri Museveni has directed the Deputy Inspector General of Police, Maj. Gen. Steven Sabiiti Muzeyi to deal with the creeping city criminal gangs that are terrorising and robbing people at night.

In a short letter to citizens, especially the Bazzukulu (grandchildren), Museveni has also tasked Sabiiti to come out with a plan on how to deal with the criminal gangs in two days.

“These are gangs we shall easily defeat. That is what we did with the Kiddawalime gang in Masaka, the gang of Bukomero, the gang of Entebbe etc.

I have given 2 days to Commander Sabiiti of the Police to come out with a plan to combat these gangs. The IGP is away in Peru for a meeting. I will look at that plan, comment on it and it will, then, be communicated to all of you,” he said.

Museveni’s letter in full

Fellow Ugandans and, especially, the Bazzukulu.

Greetings to all of you. I have been moving to Addis Ababa, Juba, Jinja etc. Today, I am busy with Cabinet. In a few days, I will get time to respond to your earlier responses. However, for today, I will only comment on the pigs that are attacking People with pangas and mitayimbwa (steel bars) and robbing them.

These are gangs we shall easily defeat. That is what we did with the Kiddawalime gang in Masaka, the gang of Bukomero, the gang of Entebbe etc.

I have given 2 days to Commander Sabiiti of the Police to come out with a plan to combat these gangs. The IGP is away in Peru for a meeting. I will look at that plan, comment on it and it will, then, be communicated to all of you.

It is easy to defeat these gangs. Their crimes will only add to the credit of the NRM because we are going to defeat them. Yet, the People have already seen the bankruptcy and the criminality of these groups and those who back them.
