Uganda Police media boss Fred Enanga has defended the military and police presence at the National Unity Platform (NUP) presidential candidate, Hon Kyagulanyi’s home in Magere.
Enange said that Uganda Police got information that the NUP president, Kyagulanyi Sentamu, had plans to organize protests around the country to contest the presidential election results that were announced on Saturday January 16th, 2021.
Enanga said that Ugandans want to see a very peaceful aftermath of the Electoral process and anybody who wants to instigate protests will not be allowed to do so because these risk the lives and the property of the people.
The Police media boss added that Bobi Wine has not come out to denounce the plans to hold protests and as such the police will remain at his residence to maintain law and order.
“Hon. Kyagulanyi as the president of NUP has not come out to denounce the plan of holding protests. They should come out to denounce the plans they have to organize mass protests.”Fred Enanga, Uganda Police Spokesperson.
Fred Enanga has insisted that the role of the Police and the Military is to maintain the rule of law and order as well as to ensure safety of all Ugandans and their property.
Bobi Wine has been under house arrest with his wife, Barbra Itungo Kyagulanyi, since election day on January 14th 2021, even though the Police maintain that he is not under arrest.
