A 34-year old man in Hoima District has asked the government to authorize him to test his locally made Missile on waters of Lake Albert.
Anatoli Kiiza, a resident of Kiryangobe village in Kitoba Sub county claims that he has manufactured a missile which he can test if the government authorizes him to do so.
Kiiza previously made attempts to fabricate a machine similar to a missile in June 2012 but Police arrested him while he was fabricating what he described as a sub missile in a workshop in Kiryatete suburb in Hoima municipality.
After undergoing interrogation, Kiiza was released without being prosecuted in the courts of law.
He told the media that despite being arrested several times since 2012, he has never abandoned his desire.
Kiiza claims to have researched on the internet how missiles are made in countries like the USA, China and North Korea.
He claims that Uganda can save money which it spends on buying weapons if innovative people like him are supported to manufacture weapons.
However, Samuel Kisembo Araali, the chairperson of the Hoima district security committee has advised Kiiza to seek permission from the National Security Council before he tests his missile or else he will face the wrath of the law.
It is reported that Kiiza enrolled for education at Kitoba primary school but dropped out however he claims to have completed S.6 at Nyamitanga SS in 2009.
