As police together with other security agencies are investigating the murder of popular vlogger Ibrahim Tusubira alias Isma Olaxes aka Jaja Iculi, President Yoweri has penned a statement condemning Isma’s killers.
Museveni who described the killers as ‘pigs’, said killers are fake thinkers.
“I condemn and treat with contempt the killing of this Ugandan by some pigs. It is pigs that believe in using guns against unarmed opponents. NRM enjoys defeating unarmed opponents with counter-arguments,” Museveni said.
“Killing critics shows that your position is false and you cannot out-argue an opponent. Why kill him if he is wrong and you are right? Killers are fake thinkers. They stand on false positions,” he added.
According to Museveni, the assailants behind Isma’s killing will be dealt with.
“I can assure Ugandans that this criminal will be traced and punished,” he said.
Jaja Iculi was shot dead on Saturday night near his house in Kyanja.
On Sunday, the security teams investigating the crime returned to the scene and made an effort to get CCTV footage from private sources so they could connect it to their own CCTV systems.
Meanwhile, Isma’s driver, Mathias Waiswa, who was unharmed during the shooting, is currently being protected as a key witness.
