Police warns Museveni, Bobi against un authorized processions and assemblies

KAMPALA- With only 3 days to the nomination of Presidential Candidates for the General Elections, the Police have warned the Politicians against holding prohibited processions and rallies which goes against the COVID-19 SOPs.

The Police spokesman CP Fred Enanga says that despite the guidelines issued by the Electoral Commission, which are very clear, the security force has found it via their intelligence that some candidates are planning to go against the set rules.

“We would like to remind all individual actors and political groups, that processions, rallies and assemblies were prohibited during nominations, due to the high risks they impose on public health and safety” CP Enanga said in a statement.

“We continue to obtain intelligence on arrangements by a few political actors, to hold unauthorized processions, rallies and assemblies. We have taken note of their adverts and publicity drives declaring such intentions” CP Enanga added.

The spokesman noted that though the force respects the rights of all Ugandans to assemble, the public must also respect the solemn responsibility of the country’s Law Enforcement Agencies, to protect them amidst the threat of the Covid-19 Pandemic.

“We all know that acts of defiance, have the potential to the used, or the threat of using violence, such as blocking roads, burning tyres, hurling petrol bombs, pelting stores at law enforcement personnel, looting property, and malicious damage” Enanga noted.

“Therefore, we would like to warn all intending participants and other members of the public, not to join these unauthorized processions and assemblies. Simply because, the organisers cannot guarantee that violence will not erupt, or further guarantee the safety of participants, against exposure to the Covid-19 pandemic”.
