    MP ZAAKE AND BESIGYE SUMMONED OVER “RECKLESS STATEMENTS” AGAINST MUSEVENI
    Fred Enanga the police spokesperson says those summoned are four time Forum for Democratic Change Presidential Candidate and the leader of the People’s Front for Transition Rtd Col Kiiza Besigye and NUP’s Mityana Municipality Member of Parliament Francis Zaake Butebi.
    Enanga says police have picked interest in the statements made by the duo in their media interviews and they have taken steps to open up a file as they investigate the statements made by the two politicians.
    Zaake while appearing on one of the Television stations in the preceding week is said to have issued reckless statements antagonising the presence of the sitting duly elected government.
    “We do take such anti-democratic utterances seriously, because of the potential of creating panic and fear in the public,” Enanga said. “Some political party activists, believe they are above the law in this country, which is not true,” he added.
    Some pundits however believe police is simply targeting MP Zaake Francis who may cause a heavy panic for the ruling NRM party in the looming Mityana woman MP byelection. “They simply want to eliminate Zaake out of the polls so it can he a smooth walk for Nabakooba,” says Ahimbisibwe, a political science student at Makerere. “Besigye comes as a scapegoat to have Zaake apprehended. On the other hand, it may be a strategy to promote Besigye and his People’s Front for Transition,”he adds.
