The UPDF commander of Land Force Major General Peter Elwelu has warned all people opposed to contentious age limit bill planning to disrupt peace through their ‘Togikwatako’ campaign that the army will deal with them.
Gen. Elwelu’s comment comes at a time after the army’s involvement in curbing violence that erupted at a rally for pro-age limit activists in Soroti district, eastern Uganda.
He said during a regional security meeting held in Kumi municipality that the army cannot sit by and watch the situation go out of hand.
General Elwelu said they have information that the opposition is being funded in this campaign by foreign countries.
The decorated army serviceman is much remembered as the fierce man who led the dangerous operation raid on the Kingdom of Rwenzururu in Kasese which left many people dead and arresting the kings-men including the king himself.
