Museveni:”I am going to deal with NGO’s over funding political violence, opposition projects,#People-power Group
President Museveni through his Presidency Minister Esther Mbayo has delivered a threatening message to the NGO community accusing them of funding the current chaotic political situation around the country.The NRM government is probing a number of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) for allegedly sponsoring political violence, protests led by opposition groups and activities which they believe are aimed at invoking regime change and undermining the ruling government.
Presidency Minister Esther Mbayo, claims that the government has obtained intelligence information indicating that some NGOs fund opposition projects that the government believes are intended to cause unrest in the country.
Speaking during a retreat of Resident District Commissioners (RDCs) at Hotel Brovad in Masaka, while discussing the progress on the implementation of the National Resistance Movement (NRM) manifesto, the minister said the State will crackdown such activities.
Mbayo said “People Power”, the political pressure group led by the Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu popular known as Bobi Wine, as one of the groups that silently benefit from the anti-government support from overseas.
She said that such organizations are mainly targeting the urban youths adding that the government has already identified them and will take action in due course.
Security Minister Gen. Elly Tumwine in a press conference on Tuesday said the ‘People Power’ movement is a terrorist group, adding that the government has taken note of Ugandans in the diaspora who are taking advantage of the current situation to seek political asylum by staging protests to avoid being held as illegal immigrants.
