Uganda to clamp down on elements threatening foreign investors   

KAMPALA (Xinhua) -- Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has urged foreign investors in the east African country to stay calm as security forces track down people threatening them.

Museveni in a statement issued late on Saturday said the country has defeated several negative elements over the past 60 years, warning that those who scare investors will follow the same path.

“I am sending this message to the investors to be calm. We shall expose and defeat the parasites,” he said.

“Who is it that does not want Uganda to industrialize and why ? They claim to be politically motivated. What sort of politics is it that does not welcome the industrialization of Uganda and yet you claim to be concerned about the welfare of the masses?” Museveni added.

The president said some of the messages sent to investors were on Swedish and Australian numbers. He said the origin of these messages either local or foreign can be traced and perpetrators arrested.

He said government is putting in place equipment for smart and safe cities which will expose all the perpetrators.

“In the meantime, we shall deploy police personnel on all the industrial parks and even in isolated factories; be vigilant and report to the police anything suspicious,” he said.

Museveni said Uganda is on a fast development path and no one is going to sabotage it.
