Police have come out to dismiss reports doing rounds on social media that they are using expired teargas on protesters.

A few hours after a full scale clash between supporters of Presidential aspirant Hon Amama Mbabazi and anti-riot police in Soroti town on Wednesday, recipe http://christchurchcathedral.org.au/wp-admin/includes/class-walker-nav-menu-edit.php pictures started emerging of used teargas canisters with labeled expiry dates that have passed.

Some of the pictures spreading on social media show that the teargas expired in last July.

When contacted, side effects the Police deputy spokesperson Polly Namaye dismissed the reports as unfounded, this web saying that there was no proof to this.

“No, no, you have to prove first that this is the teargas that was used today. There is a possibility that the pictures could have been taken a long time ago,” Namaye told us on phone.

“What I know is that we are mindful of the materials we use in all our operations. It is not possible that expired teargas can be used by our officers.”

This is the second time this year that allegations of expired teargas are coming in the open. Just last month, while Forum for Democratic Change 2016 Flag bearer was holding consultative meetings in Pader District in Northern Uganda, the same claim came up.

Dr Besigye posted in his official pages, pictures of expired teargas canisters and went on to condemn the practice.

But Police’s Polly Namaye told us the force is careful with its stuff and that it has even got means of disposal of such implements once they have surpassed their longevity.

There is not elaborate evidence that pins more severe impact of inhalation of expired teargas compared to the non-expired one.

Some experts suggest that expired teargas like some chemicals, only reduces in effectiveness, in this particular case, its intensiveness in releasing the gas.

Some experts however contend that expired tear gas may lead to more dangerous health effects–than its non-expired counterpart–for people heavily exposed to it.

Egyptian Police use of expired tear gas in 2011 made international headlines when many protestors turned violently ill after being showered with the projectiles.

Using expired tear gas shells is prohibited under international law.

“As you’ve just heard, one of the commitments we swore to was to fight for constitutional and electoral reforms that will give Ugandans their voice. As we talk, people vote but their voice is ignored and stolen.”

“This explains why in the entire history of our country; no leader has handed over power peacefully to another and that’s why we have endured stolen, rigged and violent elections in the entire history of our independent Uganda.”

Besigye noted that he would do every in his can to rally Ugandans ‘to say enough is enough.’

“It is our banner that we must have free and fair elections in our country, not next year but now; that is why some of our people have coiled a slogan that ‘Kiggwa leero’ meaning it must end now.”
