President Museveni-Its Laughable that Some People Think Ugandans want Europe.

President Museveni said it is laughable that some people think that Ugandans are dying to go to Europe.

The president was on Saturday responding to the proposed sanctions by the European parliament against his government officials and departments as he addressed the nation on security.

Mr. Museveni said he needs a lot of persuasion to leave Uganda for Europe and he only travels because of the existing friendship.

He encouraged Ugandans to work and elevate their country into a modern society in case sanctions are imposed.

On Thursday this week, the European parliament debated and passed 19 resolutions accusing Ugandan security officials of human rights violations including kidnaps, murder, torture, election rigging and malpractice.

Museveni said, foreigners more often than not offer distortions when they meddle into affairs of other countries – little wonder that they supported an illiterate Idi Amin to carry out a coup only to recall their support within just a year in 1972 when he started kidnapping and murdering people.
