President Yoweri Museveni has vowed that the “pigs” that killed controversial blogger Ibrahim Tusubira alias Jjaja Iculi, will be got and punished . police has since arrested three people including the dceased’s driver to help with investigations.
Iculi was buried yesterday in Nkokonjeru.
“I condemn and treat with contempt the killing of this Ugandan by some pigs,” President Museveni said in a statement.
Iculi, a known National Resistance Movement (NRM) party supporter but who also occasionally attacked government officials on his social media platforms was shot several times by gunmen using a pistol on the evening of May 6. According to Police spokesman Fred Enanga.
Museveni, added “it is pigs that believe in using guns against unarmed opponents as NRM enjoys defeating unarmed opponents with counter-arguments.”
“Killing critics shows that your position is false and you cannot out-argue an opponent. Why kill him if he is wrong and you are right?” he argued.
“Do you remember the Bijambiya in Masaka? Most of those suspected killers are in the courts of law today. Do you remember the Kiddawalime group? Most of them are either dead or in prison. Kiddawalime himself was among the dead.”
“Killers are fake thinkers. They stand on false positions. Anyway, I can assure Ugandans that this criminal will be traced and punished,” President Museveni who is also the Commander in Chief of Uganda’s armed forces stressed on his official Twitter handle.
“The NRM, NRA, FRONASA and UPDF only kill people in combat. We never use assassination or killing captives or prisoners.”
Museveni said that the State House comptroller will deliver ‘mataaba’ to Iculi’s family members. “We stand with you and we shall punish the killer,” he added.
