On April 7th, Bernard Sabiiti, a researcher and public policy analyst, tweeted this on his timeline: “I think Museveni has cast a spell on me!

Dear Ugandans and, especially, the Bazzukulu.

Greetings. Crime seems to be going down on account of the as yet limited efforts we have deployed. The Police, at the Police Post or station, are supposed to have a standby force twenty four hours a day and seven days a week to react to any call of distress in their area of responsibility. 

Update on combating crime - Museveni

Fellow Ugandans and, especially, the Bazzukulu

Greetings, after some weeks of absence. This time, I will, again, address you on the issue of combating crime because crime was appearing, again, after we had suppressed it with Operation Wembley in the year 2002.
