General David Sejusa, the Former Coordinator of Military Intelligence has mocked President Yoweri Museveni, saying that if the recently commissioned CCTV Command Centre is effective, let them show faces of men who were captured on video manhandling and later kidnapping a man last week.
A video recording last week went viral after plain clothed armed men roughed up and brutally beat a suspect who was later identified as Yusuf Kawooya. He was later whisked away in a taxi to an unknown location.
“Hope Museveni’s cameras can show the faces of those “armed men”! When atrocities are state inspired, how will cameras be of use?” Sejusa said on his Twitter handle during an interaction with his followers.
It should be noted that the gun wielding men were arrested and paraded before General Court Martial and charged with improper conduct while executing arrest of a suspect.
Sejusa also claims that the men captured in the video might be a militia group within security forces and can’t be officers of Uganda People’s Defence Forces.
“Most distressing thou is, surrender of the population. I highly doubt they are regular UPDF soldiers! Perhaps some auxiliary force hired to commit crime? It is standard practice when charging UPDF personnel, names, unit& service numbers are read out. I didn’t hear these! Can these bandits be under regular command? How?” Sejusa asked rhetorically.
“Lawyers should ask for their full service record. It’s one thing managing an indisciplined army but it’s quite another thing dealing with an illegal militia force bearing arms with no designated structure of command/control! Those CANT BE TRAINED Soldiers!” Sejusa added.
