Luweero district chairman, Al-Hajji Abdul Nadduli, has warned President Museveni of possible turmoil following the continued desertions of senior officers from the army.

Nadduli, speaking at the Independence day celebrations in Luweero on Wednesday, said he was concerned that the renegade officers could form a formidable guerrilla force.

“I’m scared the people we were with during the 1981-86 NRM bush war are leaving us amid disagreement. Now lately Gen David Sejusa has left us, this man can join all those others like [Kizza] Besigye, Col [Samson] Mande and form a powerful force,” he said.

Nadduli, who is NRM chairman in Luweero, was unrelenting in his warning.

“As a man, who was with Museveni and these officers in the bush, I know what it means if they continue to leave us. I want Museveni to know that our side is weakening every other day, and these people know us and all the military tactics [we used] unlike these ones who have just joined.”

Nadduli, whose comments follow the recent disappearance of Gen Sejusa, said he was concerned that all officers leaving the force angrily were being treated as an enemy of the state.

“We need these people on our side if we are to stay in power for more years; the fewer we are remaining, the weaker we are becoming, and the stronger they are becoming,” he said.

“Let us re-strategise and agree with them, and also work on the causes of their desertions because to me, they can be put right,” Nadduli added.

The function was marked by drama, when the chief guest Maj Gen Kahinda Otafiire snubbed the planned tree planting activity, at Bombo town council headquarters. Instead, he lowered the window on his car and signalled that the function was late.

At the function, Otafiire put Nadduli to task to reclaim the Mecca of the NRM, now dominated by the DP. He insisted that Nadduli was failing in his mobilisation.

Across the country in Kasese, the chief guest and Resident District Commissioner, Milton Odongo commended the district leaders for fighting insecurity. However, he asked the residents to remain vigilant in the eye of a terrorism threat.

The Kasese municipality MP, James Mbahimba, challenged the civil servants to fight corruption and improve service delivery to the public. Opposition politicians boycotted this function.

Indeed boycotting such functions together with the national election by the opposition is enough tactic to mess up the dodgy NRM agenda.

Uganda as a very poor country cannot sustain a modern civil war.

Thank God; hate him or love him, unlike other NRM sycophants, Haj Nadduli is mature and honest enough to call a spade a spade: "... the continued desertions of senior officers from the army", is dangerous!

In other words, it is getting fishy smelly76e forewarned is forearmed, Mr. M7 will ignore Mzee Nadduli at his own peril!

The respected Luweero district chairman shouls stop the panic. You are over glorifying some individuals at the expense of 'we fought'.

And once you do so others will learn the trick and this is why i agreed with my friend (he does not even know me) Otafiire that people should be left to organise outside NRM, DP, FDC etc.

Hajji Naduuli, Uganda is for all of us and not the renegades alone. Infact that peasant in Luweero could be more important than some of these people you seem to glorify.

Quoting Mweru Samuel Byachi:
The respected Luweero district chairman should stop the panic.


Mweru Samuel Byachi, Al-Hajji Abdul Nadduli was morally obligated to sound the alarm over continued desertions of senior officers from the army. Without a fully-backed military, the DICTATOR will be ousted from the State House; Officers from the bush put Museveni in and they can pull him out.

What should alarm all Ugandans is the likelihood of another military coup that replaces personalities but maintains the same oppressive governmental structure. A military coup will only result in angry men's blood spilt.

Resignation of the President, peaceful transfer of executive power to a provisional government until elections can be held, and drafting a new Constitution would hopefully prevent the pending bloodbath.

Hope springs eternal.

Egypt (Misery or Misri) has just lost loaves of bread freely dished out to the desert dwellers for some unknown good measures! The US has announced cuts to foreign aid for lack of foresight in the quest for demoncrazy!

Why is Uganda being treated with kids gloves?
M7 is just a side effect of the quest for reclamation of the long lost glories of 1900 for some quarters!
