NRM enjoys defeating unarmed opponents with counter-arguments – Museveni
By Executive Editor
President Yoweri Museveni says the National Resistance Movement – NRM – enjoys ”defeating unarmed opponents with counter- arguments.”
Museveni is the Chairman of the NRM.
His comment was in response to the murder of blogger, Ibrahim Tusubira alias Isma Olaxes. Olaxes was killed on Saturday evening by an unknown person near his residence in Kyanja, a city suburb of Kampala.
In a statement Monday, the President says ”It is pigs that believe in using guns against unarmed opponents.”
Full statement below:
Ugandans, especially the Bazzukulu, Condolences on the death of the blogger, Ibrahim Tusubira aka Isma Ichuli. I condemn and treat with contempt the killing of this Ugandan by some pigs. It is pigs that believe in using guns against unarmed opponents. NRM enjoys defeating unarmed opponents with counter- arguments. Killing critics shows that your position is false and you cannot out- argue an opponent. Why kill him if he is wrong and you are right? Killers are fake thinkers. They stand on false positions. Anyway, I can assure Ugandans that this criminal will be traced and punished. Do you remember the Bijambiya in Masaka? Most of those suspected killers are in the courts of law today. Do you remember the Kiddawalime group? Most of them are either dead or in prison. Kiddawalime himself was among the dead. I have sent ‘mataaba’ to the family. The State House Comptroller will deliver it. Sympathy to the family of Isma. We stand with you and we shall punish the killer.
