Apart from your Excellency’s deep concerns with criminal gangs operating within Uganda Police Force, there is equal measure of fear that infiltrators may have taken over some aspects and operations in Government and state.
Mr. President, I say this in reference to my recent, earlier correspondences. December 2013 and January 2014, I made a formal brief whose contents leaked and put my personal security in danger forcing senior security officers who personally knew me to intervene and they (groups) of infiltrators continue to frustrate my re-deployment as per your pledge for in appreciation for the not less than 500 air time hours annually of media advocacy on behalf of the government.
I warned about infiltration by wrong, sophisticated and wealthy inner-circle, actually very close to the Presidency who had started making ambitious attempts to politically destabilize the political movement (NRM) regime.
At the National Assembly (Parliament) on the 20th day of June 2018, Mr. President while addressing legislators at which meeting you unveiled the 10 point security plan and through our usual old military contacts, I relayed another urgent report to you but this time the contents were not drawn to your attention in time for I had proposed to your Excellency to make an addition to your 10 points as a matter of necessity the serious issues of:
(i) Corruption and (ii) Land grabbing for they are equally serious components security because as earlier interested you the infiltrators have earmarked non-combat strategies in constituencies such as peasants (evicted from land), women (murders), youth (unemployment) to effectively weaken your Government and eventually make the population to abhor the same.
As said above, the group(s) on the 6th day of February 2014, manipulated what we witnessed as the first malicious mix-up of resident district commissioners and their deputies reminiscent to the current embarrassing hitch in re-structuring the deployment and re-deployment of the same crop of human resource (RDCs and DRDCs) and one year ago, they misadvised you on the unpopular forceful acquisition of land meant for government infrastructure.
The country may wish to know that the infiltrators were again at play, ill-advising your government to tax religious materials (holy Bibles and holy Quran) and recently the anger packed mobile money and social media (OTT) tax, particularly to offend the below 35 years youth which is the biggest constituency in the country.
