He put the blame of terrorism on Nigeria’s government and other African countries where they are operating:
“I have never called the United Nations to guard our security. Me, Yoweri Museveni to say that I have failed to protect my people and I call on the UN: I would rather hang myself. We prioritized national security by developing a strong Army, otherwise our Uganda would be like DRC, South Sudan, Somalia or Nigeria where militias have disappeared with school children.
“It would be a vote of no confidence in our country and citizens if we can’t guarantee our security? What kind of persons would we be?”
––PRESIDENT YOWERI MUSEVENI OF UGANDA.
