This one is interesting. What baffles me about NRM is the fact that some people in the regime do not know the connections that JPAM and Gen. Sejusa have. Remember Dec. 15, 2014 Peaceful sit down and Mugisha Muntu saying in plain view that Dec 15th would be the start of the downfall? I do not believe in Funny Things and Subversive Activities. I do not believe in conspiracies. Except now I am paying attention. These two men have connections in Uganda Intel, the Police and the Army. I would be careful to push them too hard. Generally, most dictators have fallen from within. Egypt is classic where the army took Mubarak out and took over the country because after some 30+yrs, they finally said ENOUGH. Even the army gets tired of killing their own people. I have written to our president many times with suggestions of where we have to work together. Not that he cared to listen. This particular story should actually worry him. But then again, I have never been in the army or in politics. The conditions are too ripe for a revolution. I have been writing and informing so that we avoid the imminent revolution and the blood shed that usually goes with such a thing.
Former spymaster and coordinator of intelligence organs Gen.David Sejusa has revealed that government has hatched plans to have him arrested but stressed that he can’t be intimidated and weakened by anything.
Addressing journalists at his city home in Naguru on Thursday, Sejusa said that through his lawyers led by Ladislaus Rwakafuzi, he got to know of the plans but warned that there is nothing strange in arresting him.
“I have been in exile for 2 years and in fact life there can be compared to a prison. If they decide to arrest me, I have no problem with it but I won’t cut any political deals with any one from government,”Sejusa said.
“Someone who commanded war at 24 and overrun battalions, rose through the ranks to where I am now, I am not here for jokes and as long as I have shown my side, I am not afraid of anything and I won’t run away.”
According to the former spymaster, the President through his lawyers had contacted him for a meeting scheduled for tomorrow Friday at Rwakitura but stressed that he won’t attend the meeting with the commander in chief of the UPDF.
“Meeting the president is not like going to a hotel to meet an ordinary person. The reasons for keeping away in exile either voluntarily or forcefully have to be solved .Having been away for 2 years means am a defector from the army .Now that I defected from the army, in what capacity am I going to meet the commander in chief ? While in exile 3 hit men from government agencies wanted to eliminate me from the streets of London and all those issues have to be solved,” Sejusa stressed.
“I know this time round it is not going to be business as usual but serious issues and they can solve it either by use of power, prison, arrest or any other way they want but I won’t reconcile neither will I apologize.”
Sejusa Demands for Retirement
The former coordinator of intelligence organs further admitted that he has written to the UPDF Commissions Board seeking for retirement from the army having served the institution for 34 years.
“The last time I tried to leave the army in 1996, they said I had followed a wrong procedure .I have served for a 34 years from the Uganda police, 5 years in the bush and then after the liberation war in commanding and staff duties.”
“I was born in 1954 and this is the time to do my own things. I didn’t go to the bush because I was looking for a job but it was an ideological calling. It would therefore be a mistake to try closing out that idea yet I have sacrificed myself for the country for the last 34 years. It should therefore not surprise people because I have a right to pursue what I want, ”the former spymaster fumed.
The former coordinator of intelligence organs further questioned the reason for his continued stay in the army stressing that the President forced Gen.Salim Saleh to retire due to indiscipline which he said should be the same approach to him for absconding from duty for almost 2 years while in exile.
Sejusa returned from London last month where he had been in exile for more than a year after fleeing the country in 2013 after doctoring a document in which he alleged that all army officers who were against what he termed as ‘Muhoozi project’ would be terminated.
