Kampala, Uganda — The Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga has warned events promoters Abbey Musinguzi alias Abtex and Andrew Mukasa commonly known as Bajjo against destabilizing the country by staging protests.
Kadaga warned the duo on Friday as they delivered their petition to the former at parliament regarding the welfare of security officers in Uganda.
The two told Kadaga that the security officers who have always risked their lives protecting Ugandans from dangers like the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak are being paid peanuts and some are not paid at all.
In the same meeting, Bajjo and Abtex told the Kadaga that there are many signs of boiling anger from artistes and events promoters which may lead to a demonstration due to the overstaying of lockdown that has affected them financially.
However, Kadaga asked them to ceasefire and be patient to government which is working around the clock to protect Ugandans from the deadly coronavirus pandemic.
“Don’t set fire on the source where you eat from, your issues will be handled well without demonstrations, but before that, I ask you not to get involved in strikes and demonstrations because they may lead to other negative effects,” she said.
