Uganda’s growing crime rate has now taken a different posture of unresolved rampant mysterious gruesome murders targeting women. The Museveni military regime has deliberately refused to put a stop on thevice simply because it serves well the scene of keeping citizens in perpetual fear.
The Police Chief, Gen. Kalekyezi has on several occasions been cited at the crime scenes carrying out inquiries. In one of the series of a scene of crime visits, at Abayita Ababiri in Entebbe, he was seen interviewing local residents. He told the press thus; “Murder is the major point that has driven me here. I was shocked to read this in the media and therefore I came to see how the police has been handling these cases and surely I’ve got some information on my own.”
Museveni (pictured) also visited one of the scenes of crime and interviewed local residents as he personally took down notes. He later informed the press thus; …. the Wanainchi gave me valuableinformation; we shall apprehend those behind these killings. I will fight Wakiso women killers using a pen and paper.” He went on to blame the police thus; “But police have been using backward methods. We are going to solve this including new technology such as DNA to investigate. We shall also install CCTV cameras in major cities to ease police work.”
Despite all that high level on spot intervention, the mysterious murders have continued unabated in the same areas. The Minister of Internal Affairs, Gen. Jeje Odong is busy bleaching his skin as he claims that the murders of women are orchestrated by witchcraft. The Minister of Security, Gen. Tumukunde the other day was crying like a baby after he was mysteriously shot in his leg. He therefore lacks the moral authority to handle the security of citizens.
In April 2017 Museveni deployed his bodyguards to arrest Labor Minister, Herbert Kabafunzaki as he allegedly took a bribe from an investor. The other day, the Minister of State for Health, Sarah Opendi had to dress in a Muslim Hijab and ride on a motorcycle to a health centre to net corrupt health workers. At Naguru government health facility in Nakawa, she netted two poorly paid and facilitated health workers.
No wonder, the figurehead Director of Criminal Investigations Department, Grace Akullo, is “held hostage” by the regime. Where individuals replace institutions, anarchy reigns.
INFORMATION IS POWER AND DEFIANCE IS THE WAY TO GO.
