Police spokesperson, Fred Enanga warned last night that “Police have received information that a group linked to former Prime Minister, Hon. Amama Mbabazi, intends to stage demonstrations in Kampala, Municipalities, and other major towns in Uganda, tomorrow, Monday, 15th June, 2015.”

Enanga said, “As we verify this information, this is to alert the general public that the Police have not been notified of such demonstrations as is required by the Public Order Management Act, and should, therefore, not be deceived into participating into them.”

“The demonstrations, if indeed, they are planned, are illegal. Therefore, whoever is involved in organizing the demonstrations, or intends to participate in them will be in violation of the law, and will face criminal sanctions in accordance with the law.”
