I’m not an immigrant from anywhere-President Museveni


President Museveni.

President Museveni has said he’s not an immigrant from anywhere.

Mr. Museveni said while addressing about 250 Members of Parliament at Parliament of Uganda on the State of security in the country on Wednesday.

The President said Ugandans are now enjoying total peace after 500 years of suffering and criminal activities.

This peace, according to Museveni started from 2007 after defeating Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) rebels, LRA rebels led by Joseph Kony and cattle rustling by Karamojong.

“This is the first time in 500 years this Uganda is having total peace-corner to corner. Not after independence, not in 1986 but from 2007 when we defeated ADF, LRA and cattle rustling. We are having peace,” Museveni told the nation.

Adding: “I’m a man of this area; am not an immigrant from anywhere.”

Museveni who started his address as an historian, said those who are doing bad things for Uganda are endangering themselves, adding that they will be crushed properly.

“They have ears, eyes. They don’t know what they are playing with,” he added.

“That’s why ADF are in Congo. They know the address of Uganda but they can’t come.”

He added that for long he has not involved himself directly in handling criminals until they killed former AIGP Andrew Kaweesi and Joan Kagezi.
