After over two weeks since the presidential elections were conducted on January 14th, 2021, Police Constables are still contesting the delay in payment of their allowances for the work they did during the election period.
A week ago, about 60 special police constables staged a peaceful demonstration over their unpaid allowances for the Presidential and Local Council Elections at the Hoima City Electoral Commission Office.
The SPCs stormed the Commission office demanding for their money for the two elections that have been so far conducted. Each Constable is supposed to be given a daily allowance of 40,000 shillings and everyone is demanding 80,000 shillings for the elections held.
Just a week later, the Kabale Special Police Constables have stormed the Kabale Police Station demanding for their unpaid allowances, accumulated work done during the just concluded general elections.
The police have however promised to pay the constables soon and say they are dealing with the matter to resolve the crisis.
