               President Museveni addressing journalists on 16.Apr.2011
Today has been calm much as the walk to work protests are likely to continue next week. However the President was today addressing journalists in his upcountry home in Rwakitura and in his message to the country said that those walks will not take place and will not be entertained.

He gave an example of the press briefing he was conducting and asked the journalists if any of them were hurt or being tear gassed as a result of his briefing, he argued the opposition to carry out similar ways to echo their message as opposed to disrupting people going about their chores.

On Friday, police was once again involved in running battles in two separate places. Makerere students were on strike over allegations of a hike in tuition fees forcing the police to seal off areas around the university.

Off Entebbe road in Nyanama, workers protesting poor pay took advantage of the situation to protest poor pay given the inflation being faced in the country at the moment. Police swung into action and asked them to refer the matter to their company leaders as opposed to running to the streets.

With the riots that have been witnessed in Kampala, Masaka and Gulu more so over fuel prices which appear to be a global issue, for a country that has just had elections not in any way comparable to Ivory Coast, Uganda at large is safe.

The President assured the general public that there will be no problem on Monday because there will be no riots as they have devised means to go about it.

"This nonsense of Besigye demonstrating will not happen. How will it bring the prices of commodities down. On the contrary it increases the prices because some people who would like to transport the food will not fearing their cars will be burnt...."

So protesters should stand warned before getting to the streets on Monday. Meanwhile, the president was responding to a question from one journalist who was inquiring about when he will retire; he simply referred him to search on Shimon Peres but also added that if the February elections were free and fair, why should he retire.

The better question should have been why should he retire as opposed to when he should retire.
