“WE ARE READY TO COUNTER ALL RIOTS AND ILLEGAL PORTESTS” POLICE TO OPPOSITION
Police has continued to claim that the National Unity Platform (NUP) party, other violent groups, and actors are planing to hold riots and political demonstrations beginning this week.
Police says that they have gathered intelligence and they are ready to counter all riots and illegal protests across the country.
“Although the extent of the threats cannot be predicted, we are taking no chances after dismantling a NUP cell in Kasese district.
At least 4 suspects were arrested and charged to court, on conspiracy to commit a felony of treason. These include Bwambale Geofrey, Isande Atonozio, Basisa Brian and Mumbere Isaac,” says Police.
Police explains that the group had started mobilizing people from Ntoroko, Bundibugyo, Hoima, and Fort portal, for massive riots, burning of key government installations, blockage of Mpondwe border point, among others, during the months of November and December 2021.
In addition, the Political Crimes Department has opened case files against Hon. Francis Zaake and Rtd. Col. Dr. Kiiza Besigye, for making inappropriate statements about them using all possible means to cause change to a democratically elected government, before 2026.
“We do take such anti-democratic utterances seriously, because of the potential of creating panic and fear in the public. Some political party activists, believe they are above the law in this country, which is not true,” says Police.
