President Yoweri Museveni has given the Deputy Inspector of police two days to draw up a comprehensive plan that will defeat criminal gangs once and for all.
The deadline given to Major General Steven Sabiiti Muzeyi to present the plan is Thursday, October 17.
According to the President, who returned from an impromptu peace meeting in Juba on Monday, these gangs can easily be defeated.
“Today, I will only comment on the pigs that are attacking People with pangas and mitayimbwa (steel- bars) and robbing them. These are gangs we shall easily defeat. That is what we did with the Kiddawalime gang in Masaka, the gang of Bukomero, the gang of Entebbe etc,” the President posted on his social media pages on Tuesday.
Museveni’s letter to Bazukulu follows an increase of house break-ins and robberies by’ pigs’ in Mukono, Wakiso and Kampala.
“I have given two days to Commander Sabiiti of the Police to come out with a plan to combat these gangs. The IGP is away in Peru for a meeting. I will look at that plan, comment on it and it will, then, be communicated to all of you.”
After the gangs are defeated, Museveni said, ‘their crimes will only add to the credit of the NRM because we are going to defeat them.’
“The People (of Uganda) have already seen the bankruptcy and the criminality of these groups and those who back them.”
