RWANDA’S GEN. NYAMWASA ON ‘MUSEVENI’S PERSECUTION OF OPPONENTS’
“………You cannot be rallying and processioning for an illegitimate reason – preaching lies, preaching sectarianism, preaching hate…………..if you want to assemble publicly or to procession, it must be for a legitimate reason. If it is to preach hate, to decampaign investments in Uganda etc., then we shall not allow you. Those who have ignored this logic have paid a heavy price.”
Museveni’s missive on freedom of assembly and expression. – May 7, 2019.
Uganda’s 33 years military dictatorship under Museveni is characterised by brutal suppression of all forms of political freedom. Expression of political dissent is met with brutal force. Persecution under the guise of fighting ‘terrorism’ is the order of the day. False charges designed to curtail political activism are a norm.
Dissident Rwandan Gen. Nyamwasa has put it plainly in an exclusive interview that was meant to promote his opposition to Kagame. He went overboard by giving diagnosis of the scourge of all dictators. His assertion is an appropriate response to Museveni’s May 7th decree on freedom of assembly and speech.
“That is how all dictators describe genuine opposition. It is also common knowledge that dictators construe political criticism as crimes.”.

INFORMATION IS POWER AND THE PROBLEM OF UGANDA IS MUSEVENISM
