A credible source intimated to our reporter that the President wasn’t the operations of the LDUs reviewed and their command streamlined so that their actions can be followed up.

It’s reported that President Museveni who I also the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces,  held an urgent high level security meeting yesterday where the security members discussed the LDUs actions which are reported to be below expected standards of armed forces.

This comes after Mityana LC 5 Chairman Joseph Luzige was recently humiliated by a group of LDUs when he found them brutalising a Boda Boda cyclist who was carrying a pregnant woman before curfew time in Mityana Municipality.
