PLU moves to discipline Frank Gashumba over his recent social media comments


The Patriotic League of Uganda (PLU) has summoned Frank Gashumba its Vice Chairman for Central Region, to appear before its disciplinary committee over his recent comments on social media.

In a May, 27 letter, Gashumba is required to appear tomorrow Wednesday for disciplinary action.

“You are required to attend a disciplinary hearing at the PLU Secretariat, Plot 7 Saddler Lane, Naguru. The purpose of the hearing is to consider an allegation of misconduct against you ,” said the letter signed by Micheal Mawanda who is in charge of enforcing discipline in PLU.

Gashumba’s woes stem from his recent post on social media in which he asked the heads of security agencies, including the Chief of Defence Forces in the UPDF, Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba to resign over the recent spate of insecurity.

 “If you cannot protect Ugandans with their properties, simply resign. Everyday we see social media clips of Ugandans being assaulted, robbed and even murdered by gangs on the streets of Kampala and several testimonial reports and recordings on different categories of young females, males, traumatized by the thugery (sic) even in broad day light. We as Ugandans, we are wondering why they pay you people salaries. You are paid to protect lives and properties. If these gangs have over powered you, you don’t qualify to wear our uniforms…If UPDF can pacify Somalia, South Sudan and some parts of Congo how can it fail to wipe out these broad day light thugs,” Gashumba said in the post.

According to PLU, the post by Gashumba has been construed as a direct attack on Gen Kainerugaba.

“Your words meant and were understood to be a public attack on the Chairman of the Patriotic League of Uganda,” the letter by Mawanda said in part.

Gashumba is therefore expected to appear tomorrow for disciplinary hearing.
