The Alliance for National Transformation ANT leader Major Gen. Mugisha Muntu is condemning the government’s reaction to the Sunday morning fires. The fire severely damaged Makerere University’s main administration building.
However, Muntu who took time to visit the university to assess the damages! says the response of fire brigade to the scene shows a clear picture that Museveni has done nothing for the state.
Surprisingly, president Museveni’s government knows only one thing of arming itself ‘to the tooth’ to quell legitimate opposition gathering. It’s really a shaming that it has done very little of possibly nothing! to protect the citizens and the country’s economy from such fire.
First of all, Muntu says this reveals an unfortunate reality: the regime is focusing on it’s survival not the welfare of the state. This is not political argument or attempt to score points. But it is a fact and unless Ugandans send a clear message that it is un acceptable! Uganda is likely to have more incidents of such kind.
Secondly, Muntu notes that while the nature of the fire warrants a swift! thorough investigations government has not invested in to see it taking such a swift and decisive action.

“On the evidence of similar incidents in the past however, there’s very little basis for such hope,” Muntu adds.
However, the former army commander of the Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF) also notes that the building nicknamed the Ivory Tower was such a historical building and implored the Makerere University administration to quickly review its health and safety measures in order to avoid future recurrences of such accidents.
He says as the ANT, they will not wait for those in power to offer them goodwill in order to start building a Uganda that works for all citizens.
Muntu is an alumnus of Makerere University with a political science degree from the institution. He was an active student leader during his time at the university.
