Acting District Police Commander, abortion Jaffar Magyezi told ChimpReports that “the motive of these people will be thoroughly investigated.”

He raised concerns that such an activity was held near the premises of the bank.

Police have previously warned Mbabazi’s supporters against what the law enforcement body describes as “premature electioneering”.

Magyezi said “acts of hooliganism disguised as political activities will not be tolerated in this town.”

He further urged the public to follow the laid down procedures of holding public processions.

Mbabazi was in July arrested as he was travelling to Mbale for a consultative meeting which police said was illegal.

“But this obstruction is not the only unlawful thing that has taken place. The arrests, torture and in some cases near week-long disappearances of my supporters, as well as the arrest of Dr. Kizza Besigye, are an obscene violation of the basic human rights guaranteed by our Constitution,” said Mbabazi.

“The arrest of my daughter, as well as my own, was simply illegitimate and only served to illuminate the lawless forces at work in this nation; the lawless forces whose intentions we, united and strong, will defeat.”

Eyewitnesses said all the posters distributed by Mbabazi’s supporters in Mbarara were confiscated by police.

Mbabazi recently picked nomination forms to stand for president on an independent ticket in the 2016 elections.
