Forum for Democratic Change FDC has urged president Museveni to stop contradicting himself and pretending while addressing issues concerning torture.
FDC Spokesperson Hon Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda said that according to his statement on torture, the president encouraged security officers to shot the rioters and use water canon on them which to Ssemujju portrays him as the beneficiary of torture.
He added that in his statement president Museveni defended those who torture people and also tried to please the public which he condemned saying he should take side but not be both.
FDC now wants the individual security officers who torture people to be dismissed with disgrace and charged in civilian courts starting with the Democratic Party activist Yusuf Kawooya tormentors.
FDC has also resolved to write to the donor partners of Justice Law and Order Sector JLOS, Ministry of Internal Affairs and Uganda Human Rights Commission to discuss the torture issue.
Commenting about the 60 Ankole FDC leaders who defected to the New formation of Maj. Gen. Gregory Mugisha Muntu, Ssemujju said FDC is free entrance and exit before adding that they also launched a recruitment campaign in Teso  region and those who defected are also a target of recruitment.
