THE Uganda People’s Congress (UPC) Presidential Policy Commission chairperson, Dr. James Rwanyarare, has said Museveni acted as a guide of the Tanzania People’s Defence Forces (TPDF) who were not versed with the terrain in western Uganda.

“Museveni was a lone liberator whose role was to guide TPDF on the western flank. This passed through Oruchinga and Nakivaale refugee camps where Museveni recruited massively as in the rest of Ankole. So when he called on them to go into the bush in 1981, he had 2,700 men. He removed two zeros as he was later to do with the currency and claimed he had 27 men,” he said.

Rwanyarare was addressing the weekly press conference yesterday.

He criticised the Police for enforcing an ‘unfair’ law that limits public assembly.

“We have encouraged all our youth to join the struggle against life presidency. From now on Katumba Wamala, the Inspector General of Police, will have no other job except to fight street battles. I am yet to hear of any country where the Police have won battles against the youth fighting for their rights,” he said.

On Tuesday the Police dispersed a Popular Resistance Against Life Presidency (PRALP) rally in Jinja.

“We are drawing up a blacklist of all security and government operatives involved in the violation of people’s freedoms and they will answer accordingly. Can you imagine even Jinja DPC Pius Mutabazi denied having ordered any beatings yet the press cameras caught his officers in the act?” he added.

PRALP is a pressure group comprising youths campaigning against any lifting of the two-term presidential term.
