As Kale Kayihura seeks Parliaments approval for his third term, a reliable source has revealed to us details of an in-house security message in which the President hails the police chief for keeping walk-to-work protests at bay, and boasts that the chief walker, Dr Kizza Besigye, will never be president. The source, close to the Inspector General of Police, Maj Gen Kayihura, quoted President Museveni as saying in the message: Besigye is not a leader and will never rule Uganda. Besigye, leader of the opposition party, Forum for Democratic Change, has on three occasions (2001, 2006, and 2011) contested against Museveni, although he has always come short in the elections, which have been mired by violence and rigging two matters that the Supreme Court has previously pronounced itself on. Besigye, who fought alongside Museveni in the five-year bush war that brought NRM to power in the 1980s and was even his personal doctor, is widely considered to be the incumbents strongest rival. As a result, the President has been accused of using the police to frustrate his opponents political activities. According to another source, Musevenis message poured praises on the police chief for the way his officers have handled the walk-to-work protests that resumed last month, after a lull of five months, but failed to generate significant interest. Dr. Besigye, the most prominent walker, has been prevented from leaving his house in Kasangati, near Kampala, on foot and even held under preventive house arrest for one week. In his message, Museveni thanked Kayihura and congratulated police personnel, especially those stationed in Kampala and other urban centres, for destroying what he called evil attempts of the opposition. It was a total flop, our source quoted Museveni as saying triumphantly.
