    I may say that work which is done is always incrediable. But I may speak that cabinet which is behind him should be seen on and people for it to be seen as Aparende which is quite useful and I may say that people lik police men who are rectant and I can suggest that all police men in eastern Uganda should be sent in Somalia to help our updf soilders who are up and down sent on orders of His Excellence prisedent of Uganda museveni to and help them caz their earning free money just rotating freely in jinja and abit to say their disturbing some school children secodary mostly from so called kimaka army staff college in jinja and they come during night I think I may say that you send them on leave and may be put payements off.

    I proudly respect the service of ugandan army, so let the police bosses learn from them. We dont keep law by beating and aresting innocent ones leaving the criminal becuase he cannot contribut in eating bribe, big up to katumba wamala.
