The State minister for Lands Persis Namuganza has warned people who wear red (People Power) to stop provoking the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) because they also have capacity to fight back and protect their party boss, president Museveni.
“We are tired of the president stopping us, I can also summon my NRM youth league colleagues all over the country and we show you. You people who wear red think that you are untouchable but we also have a youth league in Kampala and the suburbs that is capable of closing this city.
Let the president just give us permission. You think that it’s only the red league (People Power) that is strong, we will one day sample you,” the junior minister charged.
“Everyone is abusing the president, do human rights support only people who wear red? Why are you inciting us and pushing us to the wall, you think we cannot do anything?” the junior minister asked.
Namuganza added that Bobi Wine got what he deserved because the president’s security team couldn’t just sit and look on as his supporters attacked his convoy and pelted stones at it.
“Everyone is defending Bobi Wine, not that we are celebrating what happened to him but if he led a group that stoned the president’s convoy what did you want security to do!” Namuganza wondered.
“You hear people and religious leaders blaming Security for beating people, where would they find you to beat you if you were not involved in violent acts?
If security operatives find people in their houses and beat them, then we would condemn their acts, but you don’t expect security operatives to look on while you throw stones and arrows at them?,” the Bukono woman MP added.
She warned musicians to stay in their lane as musicians and stop bringing their dust into politics because the political arena already has a lot of dust that has not yet settled.
“Every musician now wants to contest for a political seat. I want to warn artistes, stay in your profession, If you want to join politics, let them first mentor you, if you come unmentored and unprepared you will get problems. We have been watching your fighting in the music industry with your colleagues, now you want to bring your fights into politics, just come prepared,” she warned.

The minister also cautioned politicians to stop engaging the youth in violent acts because they will not help them.
“I’m a minister and my job is to make sure that we plan for the youth so that they do constructive things, guiding them into unconstructive actions will not help. When someone misleads the youth in defiance campaigns like people power and ‘Kyalenga’ when will they work? The solution to the problems that the youth face currently cannot be solved through violence,” Namuganza noted.
