cost geneva; font-size: small;”>“While the Police have no objection to your inspection of civil works and holding of a consultative meeting at Kalerwe, page the Police would like you to give more details on the following issues, ” a letter of the Commandant Kampala Metropolitan Police, AIGP Andrew Flex Kaweesi reads in Part.

“A clear description of the road works you intend to inspect and the exact locations. This is done to avoid a repeat of a similar inspection exercise you carried out in the city early this year where you intentionally changed the intended inspection into a political procession that later turned violent leading to the gruesome murder of Police Officer, AIP Ariong John Bosco.”

AIGP Kaweesi’s letter was a reply to the Lord Mayors’ letter dated October 22, 2012 informing Police about his plan to inspect civil works around Kalerwe, a Kampala, suburb this week.

Kaweesi wrote: “Note that the rally should not be an extension of the activities of outlawed A4C and 4GC in both form and content, and should this be the case, then Police shall not allow such unlawful activities to take place.”

He requested the Lord Mayor to give specific location where the rally will be.

He said that the location shall not be on a public road, a market or a car park.

Sources close to the Mayor say he intends to storm Kalerwe on Thursday afternoon.

Lukwago has in the past weeks clashed with security forces during political activities in the city.

During the Independence Celebrations, Lukwago’s residence in Wakaligga was cordoned off by police.
