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’.

In this latest statement since he returned home, the FU makes it clear that Ugandan opposition leaders, especially the former leader of the Forum for Democratic Change, Dr Kizza Besigye were kept in touch with developments. “…before meeting Anyine and Katungi, once again a written message was sent to Dr Besigye and a few others informing them of this development,” the FU release says. It adds: “They (the Ugandan opposition leaders) were informed that Mr Museveni had sent two people with the sole message that General Sejusa can return home without any hindrance and need not resort to violence as they understood he was planning to do.”

The FU wanted to make it very clear that Gen Sejusa’s application to be retired from the Ugandan armed forces was and continues to be intended to make it possible for him to participate freely in the transformation of Ugandan politics. “The journey is to free and better Uganda is one that should be freely joined by all patriotic citizens as well as all well-meaning friends of Uganda without any harassment or impediment by the state,” it said, adding: “It is the constitutional right of all Ugandan citizens to partake in the political processes of their Motherland without fearing they will be persecuted or dehumanised by those in power.”

    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?
