Deputy Police spokesperson, Polly Namaye told ChimpReports on Friday that, “It is true that Hon. Amama Mbabazi’s team has written to the Police seeking clearance for their consultation meetings.”

She added: “The Police in turn have written to Electoral Commission seeking their guidance on this matter, since it concerns both Police and Electoral commission.”

“We are expecting a response from the commission in order to make a response to the former Prime Minister’s letter.”

Programme

This means Mbabazi is likely to wait longer before starting his meetings.

He was in July arrested for attempting to hold a meeting in Mbale without police clearance.

His supporters who had gathered in Mbale were dispersed by anti-riot police.

The former Prime Minister blasted police for stopping his meetings without legal basis.

In his communication to Police, Mbabazi said he would begin his meetings from Mbale before proceeding to Kapchorwa, Soroti and then Jinja.

He said notices for other centres such as Moroto and Tororo in Eastern Uganda and other regions would be communicated in due course.

Mbabazi also said the meetings would include Town Hall and public meetings commencing a 9:00am till 5:00pm.

He anticipated that the persons expected at each meeting will be more than 1,000 per meeting centre.

The letter was also copied to the Electoral Commission.
