President Yoweri Museveni has left the country for South Africa for a two-day working visit, where is set to meet his counterpart Jacob Zuma.
“I have left for South Africa on a two-day working visit. I will hold bilateral talks with His Excellency Jacob Zuma @SAPresident,” the President tweeted Monday.
The President’s visit comes in the wake of chaos that has engulfed Kasese town over the last few days, leaving over 60 people dead and the King of the Rwenzururu Kingdom Charles Wesley Mumbere arrested.
The President’s tweet elicited some negative comments, and one of the people to respond to it is Alice Ruhindi, an in-law to the former Prime Minister and presidential candidate, John Patrick Amama Mbabazi.
In her ‘response’, Ms Ruhindi a younger sister to Mbabazi’s wife, and National Resistance Movement (NRM) government critic, advised the President not to return to Uganda but instead seek asylum in South Africa.
‘Please don’t come back. Seek asylum in SA,’ Ms Ruhindi, a known critic of the President ever since he fell out with her in-law, wrote.
Meanwhile, Ms Ruhindi is not the only person to have had such a response. There are others with similar responses on their social media platforms.
Rasta Magt Afidhu …People of Kasese need your presence in the country and you are busy moving around!! There is nothing productive in those “BILATERAL TALKS” even if you secure some deal, your greedy corrupt MPs will swindle every deal in their favour. So come back and settle your people first.
