By Yunusu Abbey THE Movement secretariat has advised Lt. Col Nasur Abdalah, who was released from Luzira Prison last week, to restrain from making public statements because some members of the public might misunderstand him. Ofwono Opondo, the information director at the Secretariat told the The New Vision yesterday that the decision to advise Nasur to keep a low profile was taken at a very high level. But Ofwono could not elaborate. “Lt. Col. Nasur is not being stopped from exercising his constitutional rights of freedom of speech and expression but he is simply being advised to first settle down and keep a low profile because some people might misunderstand and misinterpret his utterances,” Ofwono said. “Let him enjoy his freedom and get absorbed into society slowly. He should see the changes that have taken place in the country in the 22 years he spent in Luzira Prison but avoid making public/press statements,” Ofwono said. He said the decision to advise Nasur follows press statements attributed to him in which he was quoted as saying he planned to visit the family of the late Alderman Walugembe, the former mayor of Masaka who was killed in 1972.
