Sejusa turns down Museveni’s invite for talks
Gen David Sejusa has rejected President Museveni’s invite for a meeting that was slated to take place today at the President’s country home in Rwakitura at 8pm.
Instead, the general addressed journalists yesterday and issued terms and conditions for the President to agree to if such a meeting is to happen.
Gen Sejusa, the former coordinator of Intelligence Services, said he cannot meet President Museveni, “before serious issues are resolved”.
He insisted that if he is to meet the President, the meeting “must be in the full glare of the public” and with his lawyer in attendance”. He revealed he has started to fear for his personal safety.
If the meeting took place, he said, “it would be to reconcile, apologise or agree to disagree”.
The President’s Press Secretary, Mr Tamale Mirundi cast doubt on whether the President had invited the General for talks. “Mr Museveni is not dying to meet Sejusa,” Mr Mirundi said. “If the army wants to arrest him they will catch him like a rat. He is living on the mercy of government and just wants to appear important but he is nothing,” he added.
