President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni will on Saturday night address the nation on matters of security importance, the Minister For Kampala Capital City & Metropolitan Affairs Hajjat Minsa Kabanda revealed in a tweet on Thursday morning.
“The President of the Republic of Uganda @KagutaMuseveni will give a Security Situation Brief to the country in an address scheduled for Saturday, August 14, 2021, starting at 8 pm,” Minister Minsa Kabanda tweeted.
According to Ms Kabanda, Museveni’s address will be broadcast live on all Radio and TV Stations countrywide.
The presidential address comes in the midst of ongoing disarmament of armed warriors in Northern Uganda, back-to-back battles between UPDF and armed insurgents in the West Nile region, the Mailo Land crisis, continued curfew among others.
Ugandans have also expressed in urgency that the much-anticipated address could also give the country an update on the fate of arrested blogger and government critic Fred Lumbuye whose deportation to Uganda has remained hanging in balance after almost a week since Minister Oryem disclosed that he would be landing in Uganda by Saturday last week.
In a security briefing on Monday this week, Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga said they had already prepared 15 case files against Lumbuye when he is finally repatriated to Uganda.
