President Yoweri Museveni has issued a warning to groups of people whom he said are fond of attacking and intimidating supporters to stop it or they risk facing grave consequences.
Museveni said this yesterday while meeting NRM party leaders from the Greater Mubende districts of Kiboga, Kyankwanzi, Mityana, Kassanda and Mubende at the Mayor’s gardens in Mubende town council.
Museveni made reference to last month’s protests after the arrest of National Unity Platform leader, Robert Kyagulanyi that he said was a sample of what can be done to people who intimidate or want to harm any supporters.
During the November 18 and 19 protests in several towns across the country, pictures and videos depicted some NRM supporters dressed in party yellow T-shirts being targeted by protesters while others were being forced to remove them.
The NRM presidential candidate however said the response to the protesters, especially those who tried to undress the ruling party supporters was just a sample to what can be done to anyone who wants to cause chaos in Uganda.
