Police have insisted on maintaining the ban on the opposition National Unity Platform (NUP) nationwide mobilization activities saying there is a planned mass demonstration in January 2024.
Fred Enanga, the Police Spokesperson while addressing the Journalists this morning at Naguru noted that they have reliable information that NUP is planning for a demonstration to destabilize the country.
Last week, the NUP leader Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, alias Bobi Wine vowed to defy police guidelines and proceed with his ongoing nationwide campaign in two weeks’ time despite the latter insisting on compliance with their directives issued earlier in the same week.
Enanga says the first phase of NUP’s nationwide mobilization activities was strategically restrained from being conducted in a violent way as the leaders had planned.
He says that Ugandans should reject NUP’s violent activities or unlawful demonstrations once they activate them.
Enanga insists that they won’t allow NUP to destabilize the country and they are ready to ensure Ugandans are secured from any unlawful activity.
