Statehouse has finally furiously reacted to allegations by Dr. Olara Otunnu that President Museveni sponsored LRA rebel activities in northern Uganda.
Dr. Otunnu is the President General of opposition Uganda Peoples’ Congress (UPC).
Dr. Otunnu is said to have made the remarks a couple of weeks ago on Voice of Lango FM in Lira district town.
On the same radio talk show Otunnu allegedly accused Museveni of promoting sectarianism.
Statehouse warns Otunnu and other opposition politicians to desist from making malicious comments through the media.The Press Secretary to the President, Tamale Mirundi says Statehouse demands apologies from all radio stations in northern Uganda that allowed Olara Otunnu to air the said accusations.
Addressing journalists at Uganda Media Centre in Kampala today, Mirundi said Museveni and the army helped in restoring peace and resettling people who were displaced by LRA war.
Mirundi threatens that if the radio stations do not abide by the order from Statehouse they will face terrible consequences.
However Dr. Otunnu has called Ultimate Media, The New Vision, The Daily Monitor and all other big media houses in Kampala and maintained that he is having empirical evidence to prove that Museveni supported LRA rebels to stay in the bush, kill, abduct and displace thousands of Ugandans in northern Uganda.
