REVEALED:
How Gen David Sejusa planned to force his way back home

Gen David Sejusa had plans to return to Uganda 'by any means'.
Gen David Sejusa had plans to return to Uganda ‘by any means’.

During his meeting with the general last week, President Museveni had indicated he had sent two people to Gen Sejusa to negotiate his return. But the FU release has made it clear that the two had come to London ‘to warn gen Sejusa against using violence to force his return’. “The two young people were Ms Janet Anyine and Mr Michael Katungi. The message they carried was simple. Mr Museveni said that he had heard that Gen Sejusa wanted to return.” The emissaries told Gen Sejusa that the Ugandan leader had added: “But we hear you are mobilizing to force your entry. Museveni is then reported to have used this expression: “Ngu noyenda kutoya.” Meaning that he wanted to copy the way the Burkina Faso leader was forced to relinquish power after the people rejected his attempts to change the constitution and run for a third term. On that occasion, the Burkinabe people vanquished.

In the end, President Museveni told his former intelligence chief: “We shall not block or harass you. Return home without any conditions.” The FU says that after receiving that message from Museveni, the organisation chose to take up Museveni’s ‘no conditions offer’ instead of using forceful entry and abandoned their plans of using violence at the airport to enforce his return. The Fu adds: “This decision by Free Uganda was against the background of the government having given this type of assurance to other people also.”

Since he returned to Uganda last month after nearly 20 months in self-imposed exile, Gen Sejusa has faced criticism that he may have told ‘poky pies’ top those who welcomed him when he first arrived in London in 2013. Some argued that he could have come here on an ‘assignment’ while there are those that feared that they may have told him far too much about themselves and those who support their efforts to remove the Ugandan leader who has been in power since 1986. His silence since then has been seen as ‘proof’ that maybe this could be true.

    Dear Editor,
    Some time back you did indicate that you will tell the readers the business people
    who were behind David`s home return. We are still waiting.
    For David`s issues, it seems there is for more behind scenes that the public does know.
    At any rate, I have been writing in this paper that Ugandans need peaceful change of Governments. Through elections. Uganda does need change of dictators through
    guns. It is good David has released this. These other stories by FU are just face saving.
    Let FU go and establish itself in Uganda and compete in 2016 elections just like other opposition parties. David claimed to have know how rigging of elections was done, so he must be knowing how to prevent rigging. Then we expect his party to do well or even win elections

      We are still trying to get THE FACTS. What we have at the moment is heresy. As soon as we get the facts we will publish them,

    There is no second chance to make the first impression. It would be hard to trust Gen. Sejjusa the second time or for that matter those who flee overseas declaring that they are ready to fight and remove Museveni. Ugandans might as well resign to their fate. The road to freedom if any, is too long with no signs saying, freedom is 300 Kilometers ahead or more. For 50 years since independence, Ugandans have rested so much hope in leaders who did not take long to betray them. Sejjusa is the latest version of this. As Ronald Reagan once said in reference to the former Soviet Union: “Trust but verify”.

    If Gen.Sejjusa was assured of safety and security on his return to Uganda why did he not inform his close associates in the UK at least? The Gen. Cannot redeem himself. Whatever he does or says will never add up. In leadership one has only one chance to prove themselves especially where every leader has failed in all aspects in the case of Uganda.

    The Sejusa and FU issue is just another turn and twist of the many intrigues in Uganda political arena. Trying so hard to defend the General’s every suspicious move FU organ is actually discrediting itself much further than is needed. Talking of M7 succumbing to the threat of violent takeover from the General is just outright laughable joke. In fact the General himself realized and admitted that out there organizing and fighting against M7 dictatorship is very much theoretical affair with pretty much no effect on the dictator. This in itself on the other end exposed the inability and incompetency of the General to organize any tangible movement which could effectively challenge M7. Given he is not a kind of double agent.

    It is time for Ugandans everywhere to wake up and refuse to follow self-proclaimed leaders engaged in personal war as opposed to the one of rescuing the Nation, Uganda. Most of these leaders, the General included when scrutinized closely were once the darling of M7 who did his dirty works against the people until disputes of inequitable distribution of spoils of NRM/NRA takeover immerged. With a sense of entitlement as a result of their participation in the war of liberation, they feel cheated, sidelined and very bitter ready to revenge at any cost. Such persons when given a chance of leadership would for sure continue with the vicious circle of takeover, revenge and loot which is pretty much the norm of Ugandan politic. The Nation desperately needs a Ugandan Mandela to pump some sense into its people and change direction of political and moral compass of the Nation. Establishing of more personal movements and parties are not the solution.

      Ricard,
      You have the nail on the head. I totally agree with you. It is surprising how even
      Ugandans who take themselves to be politically educated can not see and
      personnal battles on national arena. Those who claim in democrancy should go back to Uganda educate the citizens and vote Museveni out.
      They must stop bush talk of coming to power through guns.
      With oil, Somalia issues etc, the West still wants Museveni and that is the fact.

        Thanks and appreciation Doctor for recognizing the reality of Ugandan situation. The so called politically educated Ugandans seems not so politically wise after all as they hurriedly without afterthought lashes onto anybody with a fat title and sweet words wanting to take over power. Most of these people have over powering opportunistic tendency which impairs their foresight and ability to scrutinize, tremendously enhancing their desire to have easy ride to fame and importance via the sweet talker with fat tittle. It could also be that they are just loud braggers with almost no idea about politics.

    Remember, when an antelope makes an agreement with a lion, who is to be more careful about the other?
