Suggested Military Takeover of Makerere: Besigye Tells Army to ‘Take Over Museveni’ Instead

Besigye Urges Army to Topple Museveni

Four-time presidential candidate Dr Kizza Besigye has urged the military to take over three-decade president Yoweri Museveni instead of the suggested military takeover of of Makerere University, Uganda’s premier higher learning institution.

On Tuesday, government spokesperson Ofwono Opondo suggested that the military should take over the management of Makerere.

“There’s no military here but students are running away. You can’t calculate numbers of students here. You can’t count revenue you get from your students,” observed Ofwono Opondo.

“Now, wouldn’t it be better if the military was seconded to come and run Makerere University for you?”

Ofwono Opondo was speaking at a Makerere University School of Law dialogue under the theme: Militarizing Public Service in Uganda – A Solution to the Governance Crisis? 

Opondo’s comments came in the heat of a students’ strike over tuition increment.

Reacting to Ofwono Opondo’s suggestion, Besigye wondered how many institutions the army will need to take over.

According to Besigye Uganda’s institutions are in a sorry state — and have failed due to mismanagement by Museveni’s government.

“When doctors were on strike, the army was asked to take over,” noted Besigye. 

“Now, they will take over Makerere! They’ll have to takeover all universities, all schools, hospitals, UMEME, Police etc.”

Besigye then urged the army to “Just take over the source of failure- Museveni.”
