Museveni Warns NRM Leaders Against Politics of Violence
President Yoweri Museveni who is also the NRM national chairman has warned party leaders against engaging in politics of violence.
The President Museveni was this afternoon addressing residents of Busoga in Jinja during a tour of the Nytil textile industry.
He said those seeking leadership positions should conduct their campaigns peacefully.
He also asked NRM members to embrace dialogue where there are disputes and disagreements with the ultimate goal of implementing the party manifesto at all levels.
At national level, the president has vowed to crash anyone who attempts to destabilize Kampala, saying government has enough capacity to deal with such.
At the same event, the president has also revealed that the government has resolved to set up a public University in Busoga Sub-region.
He said the University will have its base in the Eastern district of Iganga District and other districts in Busoga will have constituency universities handling specialized courses.
“ We want to develop a Marine College in Uganda like that one in Mombasa and I want it to be in Namasagali in Kamuli district because of the river in the area and we shall call it Marine University College,’’ he said.
He said structures of the defunct Busoga University would help provide a springboard to start the public University given by the government.
President Museveni said the government has for long been yearning to take over assets of the defunct Busoga University for the public University but there were some issues which had to be sorted out.
Museveni said the issues which had been a stumbling block to the takeover of the assets have now been resolved.
“I instructed a committee composed of religious leaders, to work on the handover, I saw the letters, it is now ready, the government is ready to move in , I think the issues may have been resolved ,’’ he said.
