Without remorse or sympathy over the loss of lives, the president blamed the opposition for the riot. The president must think Ugandans have eyes but no vision. This is total disrespect especially to those who lost their loved ones. He said the government will compensate those who lost property and if they are to pay relatives for the lives lost, this utter insensitivity from a head of state should cannot be tolerated.
