CHANGE OF GUARDS – Faced with growing insecurity in which the country is grappling with mysterious killings by unknown gunmen, Uganda’s military dictator, Museveni has issued a decree banning the wearing of hooded jackets. Addressing Parliament last week, he used a hooded military camouflage rain jacket to demonstrate how the hood disguises the facial identity if the assailant.

Obviously, Museveni very well knows that banning of hooded jackets is no where near the solution but as usual is just taking gullible Ugandans for a ride. Hooded jackets and jumpers are not only fashionably popular with the youth but is a trade mark dress code for his main political challenger, Dr. Kizza Besigye. Neither police statistics nor public outcry has pointed to criminals using hooded jackets.

However, it is a fact that hoods are a dressing code for his plain clothed and machine gun trotting security officers whenever they are on kidnap missions in broad daylight.

In November 2005, he sent his plain clothed, hooded armed men who stormed the High Court and they violently rearrested suspects who had just been given bail (see photo).

In May 2011, he sent his hooded security officers to attack Dr. Kizza Besigye, leaving him almost blind. One of the hooded goons was seen smashing Dr. Besigye’s car with a hammer (see photo).

In April 2016, he sent his plain clothed and hooded security officers to attack and beat up people in Kampala who were cheerig up Dr. Kizza Besigye (see photo).

In November 2017 he sent his hooded, plain clothed and armed security officers to Nakawa Court to kidnap a one Shaban Ssenfuka who had been released on bail by court (see photo).

In April 2018, he sent his hooded, plain clothed and armed security officers to the High Court to kidnap Sheikh Kalule who had just been released on bail by court after spending over four years on remand (see photo).

In all the above incidents, his regime has never come out to account for the armed, plainclothed and hooded men who have repeatedly caused mayhem. Therefore, from the above it can be concluded that hoods is a dressing code of Museveni’s security personnel who have been carrying out heinous crimes against Ugandans. By decreeing against wearing of hooded jackets, Museveni was simply posturing and as usual gambling with security.
