No One Can Distablize the Country Using Guns – Museveni

President Yoweri Museveni has said that Uganda has the capacity to defend itself and warned anyone trying to destabilize the country using weapons.

The President was addressing Parliament on the state of National Security on Wednesday.

He noted that in case of a war, Uganda can rely on its reserves to back the standing forces and intelligence services to defend itself.

‘’We used this strategy against Kony in the north, and ADF in the west. It is a reliable and affordable strategy for younger states still building their capacity, even developed countries such as Israel use it. It is therefore stupid for anybody to think they can destabilize Uganda using weapons,” Museveni said.

‘’We have an all-weather capacity to prevail in any war of aggression against us, any terrorist campaign against the country, or any crime wave,’’ he added.

Museveni’s remarks come following the recent spate on kidnaps and murders of ordinary and prominent citizens like the late Arua Municipality MP Ibrahim Abiriga, who was gunned down two weeks ago.
