Elwelu to Bobi wine”If you don’t stop your chaos, I will instantly crush you”

Elwelu said that civilians like Bobi wine are only good at making chaos to emphasize their arguments without contemplating the cost implications

If lawmakers (Bobi wine and opposition MPs) dare to fight instead of debating their way out of controversial issues again, the army will not hesitate to storm the chambers for a second time to restore sanity, the commander of the land forces, Lt. Gen. Peter Elwelu, has said.

Elwelu said that civilians like Bobi wine are only good at making chaos to emphasize their arguments without contemplating the cost implications that such unjustified brawls might have on the general stability of the country.

“I have seen our honorable MP (Luwero District Woman MP Eng. Lillian Nakate) here. We love you very much, but you people (MPs) like causing chaos in Parliament, without knowing that chaos is our business. You try creating the chaos again and we shall come and bring peace in your heads again,” he warned.

Citing neighboring South Sudan and the DR Congo, Elwelu argued that if politicians were not rational in their approach to sticky issues, they could easily plunge the nation into unnecessary conflict, causing undue suffering to innocent lives, something that the Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) was not ready to entertain.

He also warned the people power camp on their planned demonstrations and plans of involving the foreign powers in domestic Ugandan issues, that he is ready to tackle any threat that may befall Uganda.

In 2017, the army stormed Parliament to forcibly evict 25 members that had been suspended by the Speaker, Rebecca Kadaga, for sparking a brawl over a motion to pass the constitutional amendment Bill that lifted the 35-75 presidential age limit caps enshrined in Article 102 (b).

Elwelu made the remarks yesterday while officiating at a piping and decoration ceremony of 190 UPDF land force officers in Bombo, Luwero district.

  1. Its surprising how the commander of the army comes out to say something like that, doesnt he ask himself why Museveni scores very low in the actions conducted in the barracks? He speaks like that because hes protecting his boss but Uganda is over 40 million people plus unless they are willing to crush the whole country then we civilians we shall listen to them. Does he know what human rights and democracy mean, what do you do when you are denied your right, he thinks Ugandans are still cowards like they could come out and scare people and we keep quiet. Ugandans are peaceful people who want a peaceful transfer of power, let his boss do that and he sees if there will be chaos. The role of the army is well know. . When People come out unarmed, peaceful and singing, what wrong do they do there. It is until the police comes in with teargas, bullets and pepper spray that citizens start running causing accidents. Qho is violent here. Let that foolish man know that Ugandans have been going through this torture for a long time and just because they decide to keep quiet ,it doesnt mean they are that stupid. Over 33 years in power and over 80 %unemployment and they think Ugandans will shut up. No if he wants to crush then he has a big work load because we are many. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH ANS QE SHALL NEVER AGAIN KEEP SILENT UNTIL WE GET OUR DEMOCRACY BACK. UGANDANS ARE FADE UP, MUSEVENI HAS TO LEAVE POWER. We know he doesnt care of who dies, he doesnt care of who gets killed but after all eventually we all die. We shall die trying. The army should realize this sooner.
