Members of the National Residence Movement (NRM) Turkey Chapter have condemned the gruesome murder of the Arua Municipality MP, Col. Ibrahim Abiriga.
The fallen NRM diehard was gunned down by unknown assailants on his way back home on the night of Friday 8th June, 2018.
The NRM Turkey Chapter chairman, Hussein Wasswa told Chimpreports that the party members in Turkey are still mourning the 62 year old MP, who was committed to serving the interests of the party.
“We as the diaspora members in Turkey are grieving because Mr. Abiriga meant a lot to our party and this creates fear among the NRM carders,” Wasswa said.
“The government should come up with a comprehensive report on the murder of Abiriga and the assassins should be hunted and taken to Court,” Wasswa said.
On the measures put up by the president to handle the criminals such as denying bond and bail to suspected killers, banning hoodies on bodabodas and mandatory installation of tracking devices in cars and bodabodas, Wasswa said that the diaspora is partially in support.
“We conquer with the president on putting tracking devices on all vehicles in the country, we believe this will deal with the killers who run and are hardly traced by the security authorities,” Wasswa noted.
He however observed that the orders on the dress code on boda boda cyclists may not be called for since they use hooded jackets to avoid the night cold weather.
“We as well applaud President Museveni for the arrest of the former Inspector General of Police (IGP) Gen. Kale Kayihura; we believe this will serve as an example to the rest of the civil servants who may be missing their offices and authority.”
“We are behind the president for every move he is making towards ensuring a stable and secure country and we are ready to offer our support,” Wasswa added.
