Gen Sejusa warns Museveni: Free us or we will free ourselves

Gen David 'Tinyefuza' Sejusa who has accused President Museveni of leading a government that oppresses and terrorises its own people.
Gen David ‘Tinyefuza’ Sejusa MP, who has accused President Museveni of leading a government that oppresses and terrorises its own people.

A Ugandan army general has mounted a vicious attack on the leadership of President Yoweri Museveni, accusing him of leading a government in panic that uses oppression and fear against its own people and warned him that if he continues to deny army officers the right to peacefully retire from the army, they will free themselves from what he called imprisonment within the army.

Gen David Tinyefunza who early this year changed his surname to Sejusa, last week precipitated a clampdown on the Ugandan media after writing a letter in which he wanted the Uganda Peoples Defence Forces (UPDF) to investigate rumours that senior army officers opposed to the Muhoozi Project (a plan to have Museveni’s son Brig Kainerugaba Muhoozi to succeed him as president) were being targeted for assassination, has written a second letter, addressed to all Ugandans, a copy of which has been sent to us from an unknown location here in London.

In this letter, distributed to the media by Gen Sejusa’s Kampala lawyer Joseph Luzige, Gen Sejusa castigated the Museveni Government in which he has served for the last 27 years for its clampdown on the press resulting in the closure of Monitor Publications, the Red Pepper and two radio stations owned by the Monitor. He wrote: “Let the papers write freely about it (the Muhoozi Project) and sure you will then get your reward.”

Extending his hand of ‘solidarity and reassurances’ to the closed media houses, Gen Sejusa said the struggle of the media that has ended in the closure of some of them and the redundancy of thousands of workers employed by the closed media, will not go in vain. He further wrote: “The excuse given is that they are searching for the Sejusa letter. Well! They are not because the writer of the letter is known and in any case, Red Pepper never published that letter. It just published a press release from lawyers.”

    I CONGULACULATE GENERAL SEJUUSA FOR BEING A COURAGIOUS MAN TO COME OUT AND SPEAK THE TRUTH!even we ugandan students abroad we are fearing to come back to our country because of the bad situation in which museveni and his family cabinet have ruled the country.

    we are ready to support any change for museveni to totally leave the power and not being succeded by muhozi or any family relative;as the country needs a change!

    What Seju is doing is a script, these are the hidden points which were not included among the 10 points program. Seju, Besigye and the like are given this task (playing drama) to blind fold Ugandan so that they may continue ruling Ugandan for life! Up to now Seju is still doing his role as the “Coordinator” in Museveni’s government, whoever need to confirm should go to Museveni’s pay roll. So Ugandan should be less excited and watch out when looking for a genuine change and be extra careful from the architect of this ten points program, “THEY ARE ACTING SCRIPT” SEJU, MUNTU, BESIGYE,ECT……..

    Why do some Ugandans fear a peaceful vacation of power? Countries that change their leaders prosper but those that don’t are like Sodom and Gomorrah.
