President Yoweri Museveni will address Uganda for the second time in one week at State House Entebbe on Saturday.
Museveni on Sunday addressed the nation on a series of issues including; Security, economy and the role of media in development.
However, according to a note from the Presidency, Museveni will again speak to the country through a press conference scheduled for Saturday 15.
“President Museveni will address a press conference on Saturday, September 15th, at 7.30pm, on the subject of security, at State House Entebbe,” a statement from Museveni’s handlers reads.
Only hours after the gruesome murder of former Buyende District Police Commander ASP Muhammad Kirumira, President Museveni announced a move by government to recruit 24000 Local Defence Unit (LDU) personnel in greater Kampala area.
Kirumira was shot dead by unknown gunmen near his home in Bulenga along the Kampala – Mityana road.
Addressing the country on Sunday, Museveni said the problem of urban crime is becoming big and is worrying many people in the country.
“It is these killings worrying Ugandans more,” Museveni said in reference to the murder of Sheikhs, AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi, Col.Ibrahim Abiriga, Joan Kagezi and ASP Kirumira.
Museveni who sounded incensed said government has been forced to deploy a new method of fighting urban crime apart from the usual methods.
This is the second time Museveni is addressing the nation on the issue of security alone. In June, the president addressed members of parliament over the same.
