Ugandan polls: Army warns against violence

29 January 2016, 19:59

Kampala – The Ugandan army has warned people against resorting to violence after the east African country's presidential elections on February 18, reports the Daily Monitor.

"We want to send a message: If the results are not in your favour, you have no right to destabilise the country, because this country is bigger than individuals,” General Katumba Wamala, the Chief of Defence Forces, said during a ceremony commemorating 30 years since President Yoweri Museveni took office.

His warning was also meant for members of the ruling National Resistance Movement.

Wamala said the east African country had a long history of violence.

The warning was a response to recent reports that the presidential elections would be marred by violence.

Museveni, in power since 1986, was expected to face his stiffest opposition from Kizza Besigye, a three-time loser for the Forum for Democratic Change, and Amama Mbabazi, a former prime minister and ruling party stalwart now leading the Go-Forward party.
