Museveni’s government has declared war on a new rebel group, which promises to take power by the end of 2022.
Uganda Coalition Forces of Change (UCFC), a new rebel group, has declared war on Museveni’s government, citing dictatorship, human rights violations, tribalism, and other factors as reasons for its decision to use force to seize power.
The Ugandan Police confirmed on Tuesday that this group is responsible for the deaths of several police officers in the country’s central region.

He said that two police guns that had been stolen from officers had been recovered so far and that eight suspects had been arrested.
The UCFC, on the other hand, has denied that any of its members have been arrested, claiming that these are merely planted goons attempting to create the impression that the new force has been weakened.
The new rebel group’s main bases are thought to be in Mityana and Kiboga, with cells forming in Mukono, Wakiso, and Kampala to recruit more members to fight the government.
Security organs, according to police spokesperson Fred Enanga, will not rest until all members of the new rebel group are arrested and brought before the law for declaring an armed rebellion against the Ugandan government.
He also cautioned youths against being duped into participating in such rebel activities, warning that they would face repercussions.
