While attending the budget presentation ceremony for the financial year 2021/2022 at Kololo Independence grounds, H. E Yoweri kaguta Museveni revealed that he talked to the current “CDF” and Minister for Internal Affairs General David Muhoozi that every transit is to have a digital monitor (tracking device).
“Every vehicle and motorcycle must have a digital monitor. If you try to remove it, we shall go for you. It will show us where you are at any one time. As soon as there is a crime, we go. I don’t want any wasting time in investigations. I have told Gen David Muhoozi (State minister for internal affairs) to check what has happened to that plan. We would not be wasting time on who was there on Gen Gen Edward Katumba shooting” H. E Museveni said.
The president also talked about the recent attack towards his star General “Katumba wamala” which left his darling daughter and driver dead. It’s here that he revealed that the attack was politically motivated,“The attack on Katumba is not any ordinary crime; this was a definite political motive, and we shall know which pig it was. NRM never uses assassinations because we are sure of ourselves. Why should I kill you because you are opposing me,” Museveni added.
The president further added, “Instead of working, you go to attack people. These are parasites. Ugandans like nice life; these days, there is no noise because of corona. When corona ends, I want my people to go back to enjoying themselves and jumping up and down. We shall crash the parasites. I’m here to tell the parasites that we shall crash them; we managed the rebellion, now this one is like a jigger. To get it you go for its eye, so this problem of the criminals we shall not use roadblocks, we shall go for the eye of the jigger”.
The “digital monitor” issues has then aroused unending talks with in transit owners and other people, a question of privacy is also tabled as a few feel insecure towards being monitored.
