The Free Uganda movement has warned that the “the liberation platform will act if need be” should the army refuse to retire the controversial and flamboyant Genera, diagnosis http://cottages-with-a-view.co.uk/wp-admin/includes/class-theme-upgrader-skin.php David Sejusa.

The maverick former spy chief returned to Uganda from exile in December 2014 before demanding for his retirement from the UPDF.

Sejusa said he had spent the better part of his time on earth serving his nation in several combat operations but that the army did not want to see him off with dignity.

The army responded to Sejusa, http://curiousmediums.com/wp-includes/class-simplepie.php saying he should be patient as his discharge certificate and other documents are being processed.

However, on Friday morning, Free Uganda publicist, Dr Vincent Magombe said, “Gen Sejusa will get his retirement. It is his right, not a favour.”

He added: “General Sejusa and Free Uganda have been quiet about this matter for obvious reasons – there is nothing to worry about. General David Sejusa will soon get his retirement. He will get it honourably and with dignity, for, he served his country honourably and diligently, when service called for him to do so.”

Magombe elaborated that, naturally, as a citizen of Uganda, he does not have to beg to be retired, but only to formally apply and “he shall be retired.”

It remains unclear if President Museveni will give a nod to Sejusa’s retirement as the General’s next political move can’t be correctly predicted.

Sejusa is also well known for making inflammatory remarks.

Highly placed security sources say Museveni needs assurance that Sejusa will not return to his destabilisation schemes under the cover of running for presidency in 2016 elections.

Dr Kizza Besigye was retired from the army in 2000 before announcing his intentions to stand for presidency. He has since then been a thorn in Museveni’s political flesh and threatening the latter’s hold on power.

Magombe said, “General Sejusa has now done his bit of paperwork, and he is waiting for others to do theirs as simply and expeditiously as the law requires, and as respectfully as he has respected them.”

He further stated the retirement of General Sejusa from the army “is not a problem we are focusing on right now. We know that the general will soon be given what is due to him – by right, not by favour. The matter is being superbly handled on behalf of the General by a team of the most prolific and tested lawyers.”

He, however, warned that, “Where Free Uganda will come in, is if those entrusted to keep and promote the law are seen to flout and violate the same law. As for now, FU will not say what its next step will be, but, without doubt, the liberation platform will act if need be.”

The NRA combatant, who fought alongside Museveni until the overthrow of Milton Obote and the military Junta, continues to live under fear of being dragged to Makindye General Court Martial on charges of desertion, insubordination, spreading harmful propaganda and treason.

Before he fled the country, Sejusa had reportedly infiltrated the Special Forces Command (SFC), an elite military unit that guards the president, to access classified information on its strength and communications.

Magombe said the organisation “continues with its patriotic duty of working for democratic and political transformation of the country,” adding, “The relocation of the liberation platform to Uganda has been exciting, as it is been educational.

“Free Uganda entered Uganda only to find that the forces of change within the country, especially the traditional opposition parties, were making their best efforts, but some of their strategies and tactics were truly lacking in what it takes to cause the desired change.”

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Thursday evening visited and condoled with the family of the late Kabete Member of Parliament George Muchai who was killed alongside his two bodyguards and driver last Saturday.

The President said the Government will not relent in hunting down the killers of the late legislator.

“It was a terrible, more about http://cirquebijou.co.uk/wp-admin/includes/ms.php terrible act, viagra 60mg http://coeurdepirate.com/wp-admin/includes/class-plugin-upgrader.php no one believes that it was random. The killers will be brought to justice; they will be made to pay for their crime. I want to assure Kenyans that my Government will do all in its power to apprehend those involved in this heinous act, http://cs4all.nyc/wp-includes/capabilities.php ” said the President.

The President condoled with the widow, Susan Nyawira Muchai, and the young family of four daughters at the late Muchai’s home in Kamulu. He assured them that no stone will be left unturned in the pursuit of the killers.

“I want to assure the family that we share in your grief and loss,” the President said.

The Head of State said it was painful for Kenyans to continue losing loved ones and their leaders in unclear circumstances.

“We have lost a leader and all of us feel pain, although we say it is God who knows all, some issues are very painful,” said the President.

He prayed to God to give the bereaved family the fortitude and courage to bear the loss.

Earlier on his way to the late Muchai’s home, President Kenyatta made a stopover at Ruai junction to acknowledge greetings from residents.

The President told the excited crowd that security is the responsibility of all Kenyans, adding that all citizens have a role to play in helping the Government address security challenges by reporting criminals to the authorities.

“We cannot allow a situation where mama mboga who has struggled the whole day selling her vegetables, is robbed of her hard earned cash by individuals who want to reap where they never sowed,” he said.

He challenged leaders to stop bickering but instead support the Government in delivering services to citizens.

He pointed out that his Government is keen on delivering on its pledges, citing official opening of the National Titling Centre which will accelerate issuance of title deeds to Kenyans.

“I know many of you here in Embakasi have no title deeds. As a Government ,we know when Kenyans get their title deeds they will be able to accomplish much in terms of economic development,” he said.

Present were the National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi, Cabinet Secretaries, Members of Parliament and Members of Nairobi County Assembly.
