Army intervention won’t solve conflict niintifirootouucrane

President Museveni’s talk of army take over is diversionary. How can the UPDF overthrow a people-elected Parliament? While I sympathise with the President on the rising “chaos” in Parliament, I don’t think army intervention is necessary. The situation is still manageable if strict measures are put in place.
Whenever leaders fail to explain to the masses the serious internal contradictions in Uganda’s politics the army is dragged in. Perhaps, there is need for NRM leaders to make more, versatile structures, to minimise these threatening statements. A coup in the 21st century is unsustainable and shows that our leaders have failed to manage the country.
