BREAKING: Police Warn MP Ssemujju Against Kireka Rally


healing geneva; font-size: small;”>Ssemujju told journalists on Thursday he would meet his constituents for a cleaning exercise at Kireka market before holding a rally in the same township, capsule a statement that has angered Police.

Deputy Police publicist Vincent Ssekate has told Chimpreports News Desk that indeed Ssemujju communicated to the law enforcement body on his intentions to hold political activities in the area.

However, the opposition FDC legislator did not specify the schedule of the cleaning exercise and rally, according to Ssekate.

“We responded to Ssemujju’s letter and made it clear to him that a rally can only be held in Kirema which is convenient,” said Ssekate, adding, “because we don’t want the rally to disrupt people’s businesses in the town.”

Kirema is a rehabilitation centre that boasts a vast football pitch.

He added: “We further told Ssemujju that we would not accept any activities near the Jinja Road highway or at the Kireka lorry park because its management had written to us saying they never wanted political activities there because they are very disruptive.”

Ssekate said Police is not restricting Ssemujju from holding a rally but “it must be in a convenient area.”

“We cannot sit and look on idly as people’s property gets destroyed. As security our job is to protect lives and property.”

Police have in the past had running battles with opposition politicians including Ssemujju during such political functions.
