Gen. David Sejusa, the renegade Former Coordinator of Intelligence Services who flew back into Uganda has spoken out about his return.
Speaking from his country home located at Nkoma village in Lugusuulu sub county, Sembabule district, Sejusa said he decided to come back to fight bad governance from home.
Sejusa also says he will not go to Namboole to take part in the National NRM delegates conference because he does not belong to that party.
Sejusa explained that he decided to return home because Uganda is his country. He said that his return does not mean he will abandon the grounds that forced him to go to into exile in United Kingdom.
Dressed in checked long sleeved shirt with navy blue cardigan, Sejusa said he is still focused on the issues that forced him to go into exile. He explains that he had two options, one of them being a peaceful return without being arrested or he was ready to force his way back into Uganda.
Sejusa condemned the heavy military deployment at Entebbe international airport on his arrival. He said that the deployment means Museveni’s government is in a panicky mood.
His return has triggered debate around the country with some politicians saying his return is suspicious.
MP Susan Namaganda of Bukomansimbi says Sejusa’s return is only aimed at weakening Amama Mbabazi, the former Prime Minister of Uganda. She suspects the could have have been a deal reached between President Yoweri Museveni and Sejusa.
MP Joseph Ssewungu of Kalungu West has asked Sejusa to stick to what he said when he fled the country.
Gen Ssejusa, formerly known as Tinyefuza, fled the country on April 29th 2013 after alleging that his life was in danger of assassination for opposing the alleged project for first son Brigadier David Kainerugaba Muhoozi to take over as president of Uganda.
He therefore demanded an investigation into an assassination plot linked to President Yoweri Museveni’s alleged succession plan. He claimed that senior government officials were at risk of assassination for opposing the plot for Brig. Muhoozi to succeed his father President Yoweri Museveni as Ugandan President.
