Stop intimidating my voters – Museveni warns people power

President Museveni has warned those intimidating voters to desist from the bad habit.

“Do not intimidate people. People are being attacked,” he said Tuesday while addressing NRM delegates.

“The ones who attacked our girl in Kiseka will pay for sure. You have absolutely no right to attack me for wanting to vote.”

He added: “You have no right to abuse and to be rude to me. I am in my country and my house.”

He said NRM needs to expunge the politics of careerism and re-instate the politics of mission-led leadership. It is not just the: “who”. It is, first and foremost, the: “what”?

“Uganda’s salvation, for Africa’s salvation? Once you remind yourself that the “what” in the case of NRM, means the 4 ideological principles: Patriotism, Pan- Africanism, social-economic transformation and democracy, then, it is easier for you to decide on the “who”.

“Who is it that seems to understand and adhere to the three principles? Do not intimidate, do not assault, do not insult, do not bribe, but persuade by explaining and exhibiting good conduct. “Let your light so shine before men, that they see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven”, it says in the Book of Mathew, Chapter 5, Verse 15-.”

He said influence by explanation and good examples and not by intimidation, assaulting, insulting, manipulating or bribing.

Museveni said he has been hearing that some politicians are saying there’s no COVID19.

“If we get the evidence we shall prosecute them.”
