Exiled Ugandans urged to go back home

19 December 2014, 09:30 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - Uganda's Prime Minister, Ruhakana Rugunda has urged all Ugandans living in exile to return to their country because it is now totally safe.

Hundreds of Ugandans who fled the country in different periods and regimes are living in exile especially in countries like UK, USA, Canada, and Denmark.

Although a few fled in President Yoweri Museveni's regime, a good number went during the brutal regimes of Iddi Amin and Milton Obote.

It is alleged that during Amins' regime between 1971-79 and during Obote's regime in1980s, many Ugandans fled into exile due to harassment by army and other security agents.

When Museveni came to power in 1986 after a people's protracted war, the soldiers and politicians  who were mistreating Ugandans also fled and the majority have not returned home.

Rugunda called on those who are still in exile to emulate general, David Sejusa, who recently returned to Uganda after being in exile for several years.

"Through the right processes government will ensure reconciliation with the former coordinator of military intelligence David Sejusa who returned from exile early this week," Rugunda said.

He added that this will work as an example for all Ugandans who are living in exile for reasons of insecurity that it is safe for them to return home.

His explanation followed a question from Mukono Municipality MP, Betty Nambooze, who asked for an explanation as to  whether the government was planning to charge Sejusa for utterances against government which he made while in the UK.
