It would be treason for Kayihura to own assets abroad - President Museveni

Sunday September 22, 2019


President Museveni has for the first time ever spoken out on the sanctions levelled on former Inspector General of Police Kale Kayihura by the US.

The US accuses Kayihura of rights abuse, human trafficking and corruption.

In a statement released on Sunday morning, President Museveni says opposition’s celebration of sanctions against Kayihura shows their failure to do what they ought to do and concentration on what is not their business.

“Therefore, to hear leaders of national Political Parties jubilating that a Ugandan is barred from entering the USA is very good news for the NRM because, as always, it will be very easy for us to show the Ugandans and Africans that “they have left undone what they ought to have done and have done what they ought not to have done and there is no truth in them”, reads part of the statement.

Museveni also retaliated his unwillingness to one the International Criminal court siting in Hague.

“That is why we shall never hand any Ugandan to, for instance, the Court in The Hague- the ICC. Kale is already facing whatever mistakes he is suspected to have committed in our Courts”, he added

The Opposition has since come out to note that the sanctions are timely adding that even more should be issued against other security chiefs.

"What would be disappointing is to hear that Kale had investments in the USA that his children go to see. That would be treason. Investments in the USA when Uganda needs investments " he noted.
