Army and police officers have been deployed to Kyanamukaka, Kabonera and Buwunga sub-counties in Masaka district to respond to reports of rebel recruitment there.
This week several leaflets were dropped around Kyanamukaka with messages accusing the Speaker of Parliament, Edward Ssekandi, of frustrating the Buganda Kingdom's campaign for federalism. Ssekandi was accused of being in cahoots with the Masaka District Internal Security Officer Steven Kizza and the Kyanamukaka LC3 chairperson, Paul Migadde, in this affair.
The authors of the leaflets claimed responsibility for armed attacks in Kyanamukaka in the past month in which six people have been killed. They dared the readers to call them on mobile phone number 0774-966224 and signed off using the number of the Biblical anti-Christ
