In the meantime, the Inspector General of Police, Gen Kale Kayihura, is appearing before Parliament to explain himself on the same matter.


The chief campaigners include opposition party presidents Olara Otunnu (UPC), Norbert Mao (DP) Mugisha Muntu (FDC), Kiiza Besigye, Bishop Zac Niringiye, and others numbering up to 20.


The meeting, according to Gen Aronda’s letter was called at the request of the team which was submitted on March 27.


It follows an array of negative reports of police brutally arresting the group leaders in the districts of Kabale, Kasese, Mbale, and Soroti, firing teargas and live ammunition and closing down some radio stations where they were being hosted.


The group also insists that the police are illegally implementing the Public Order Management Law which they say is not yet applicable in the county.


According DP President, Norbert Mao, the Internal Affairs Minister, Gen Aronda, has not yet as required by the law, issued a Statuary Instrument which sets out the date on which law begins to be implemented.


Section 1 of the POMA states that the Act shall come into force on a date appointed by the Minister in a Statutory Instrument and published in the National Gazette.


Police, however, has severally come out to defend its actions saying, the campaigners were blocked for failure to inform the IGP and local police authorities about the rallies, an allegation that the team sternly denies.
