Lt. Col. Nelson Bataringaya the 35th Battalion Commander in Kisoro district says his soldiers have on a number of occasions come under attack while enforcing Dictator Yoweri Museveni’s Covid19 stay-at-home directives.Kisoro

The locals, he says, have resorted to stoning their patrol teams especially in the night hours.

Last week, according to Bataringaya, a pick up belonging to Kisoro Municipal Council was stoned and its windscreen broken.

The commander adds that on Tuesday, a UPDF officer on patrol was injured on the head, while on Easter Sunday his own official command vehicle registration number DO2DF103 was also stoned and the windscreen broken.

“People have resorted to stoning our patrol teams especially during night hours. This must stop because the outcomes next time might not be good. We can’t be intimidated; we have to implement the president’s directives,” he said.

In the same vein, Captain Peter Mugisha the Kisoro RDC reported similar attacks in Russia in Kisoro municipality, Nyakabaya trading centre, Gashenyi trading centre in Gasovu and other areas.

He noted for instance at Mubuga primary school where some youths were found playing football and when police tried to stop them they begun fighting the police officers and in the process one of the youths was shot in the leg.

Dictator Yoweri Museveni yesterday warned Ugandans against attacking members of the armed forces, which he termed as a suicide attempt.

Ugandans who attack police officers and the army, especially those that don’t have anti-riot gear, Museveni said, risk being shot.


Reactions of Some Ugandans on Kisoro Locals

May be the way you approached them was unfriendly. The best way to make civilians understand you I’d by talking to them with caution than beating or harassing them.
U jus want excuses to kill ugandans.
Am humble, for God and my Country, salute!, God’s words help to make people’s hearts humble, but not, to protect us security is security, for these who mess with security they need some silent lessons.
We are getting tired of ourselves just because of hunger even tuff than u soldiers coz atleast u pipo ur getting free posho and beans so mutwegendereze tuli nabakowu
& colleagues for yo fellow brothers coz they act as if un trained. FOR US WE LOST HOPE IN YOU.
Its obnoxious and regrettable to see that from the citizens however i believe there is a small group that is specialised in attacking security so do more inner job with in the citizens.
Just like the president Car was stoned in Arua i don’t think we have reached there
You as security agents also behave as If you aren’t humans. You want to treat Ugandans like slaves…in their own country ..some agents act like they haven’t had a meal for a week..so they want to revenge their anger on Poor Ugandans.
But on my side view j wanted to say let police and UPDF to act with high force.
That was bad
But you people stop by that.
Regrettable but lets not brutalize our our patriots. UPDF has earned a reputation when it comes to enforcing rules on the wananchi. 
Too absurd, the security agents are forcing individuals to protect their lives. Kitalo!
How are these pics corroborated to your narrative? You just want justify terror against citizens. Even Arua Saga is stil fresh.
