Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni has called the killers of ruling party MP Ibrahim Abiriga ‘pigs’, a state-owned newspaper has tweeted. Museveni further accused the killers of starting a war with the ruling party and promised a fierce engagement.
“These killers who kill people because of politics are pigs. I call them pigs,” Tweeted Museveni.
“I’m confident, we are going to defeat them, they have opened a war, they are going to see what the NRM means in war.”
Thousands of people were attending Abiriga’s funeral.
He was shot dead last week by gunmen on motorbikes.
