Yesterday in Uganda news, Uganda Police Force arrested an Opposition activist Mulangira Hope Kaweesa who allegedly posted an audio on social media containing death threats against President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, Muhoozi Kainerugaba his son and several other National Resistance Movement officials and supporters.
Hope Kaweesa, a Democratic Party supporter, was arrested last week on charges of offensive communication on the audio posted on a WhatsApp platform.
The CID spokesman, Ssekatte Vincent, said that the police is still analyzing whether the voice in the audio is for Kaweesa or someone else.
“If it isn’t his voice, then he has to tell us whose voice it is because he shared it. If it is his, he has to tell us about his plans to assassinate President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and Members of Parliament,” Mr Ssekatte said.
This comes after the assassination of MP Ibrahim Abiriga Arua Municipality MP on June 8, the police have become more aggressive on people who post suspect offensive statements on social media.
Mr Ssekatte said in the audio, allegedly shared by Kaweesa, the communicator threatened to kill President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, Maj Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba and State Minister of Finance for Investment and Privatization Evelyn Anite.
Others are Lt Gen Henry Tumukunde, former Minister for Security, and MP Raphael Magyezi, who spearheaded the amendment of the Constitution Bill to remove the presidential age limit.
The person speaking in the audio said president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and others will be killed for amending the Constitution to allow him to stand for president after turning 75 years.
