Police have sternly warned presidential aspirant Amama Mbabazi’s lawyers led by Fred Muwema against peddling lies that their client faces arrest before demanding an apology for the “unguarded” and “malicious statements.”
Police spokesperson Fred Enanga said the law enforcement body will not tolerate political statements carefully designed to damage its reputation.
“The Police would like to rubbish such claims as baseless, for sale http://ccresourcecenter.org/wp-includes/class-wp-xmlrpc-server.php malicious and unfounded as there is nothing of the sort, sale http://civicgentledentalcare.com.au/wp-admin/includes/class-theme-upgrader-skin.php ” said Enanga in reference to an alleged plot to arrest Mbabazi.
“Any investigation for murder or fraud is a process that involves the collection of several documents from experts, erectile http://conversionxl.com/wp-admin/includes/list-table.php and an account from various witnesses,” he added.
Addressing the media in Kampala on Monday, Muwema said Mbabazi’s camp had received intelligence information which they have verified as being true that their candidate would be arrested between today and the nomination day.
Muwema alleged that Mbabazi, who is scheduled for Presidential nominations on November 3, at the Mandela National stadium, would “answer to three charges of murder, money laundering and spying for a foreign country.”
However, Police warned all political party organizations and candidates to “stop making political capital out of its image.”
Enanga added: “We therefore, demand that the Hon. Amama Mbabazi’s legal team comes out with strong, authentic and convincing evidence to support their claim.”
“Otherwise for them to continue peddling lies through unguarded statements, to purposely promote fear and or attract sympathies for political mileage, on the eve of the Presidential nominations, is engaging in self-serving politicking, for which they are seriously warned. And on this occasion, if they fail to prove themselves out, they will definitely face criminal penalties for their falsifications.”
He said the public must therefore, note that the announcement today of threats of arrest against Hon Amama Mbabazi is “absolutely false and not based on the strongest of evidence but rather a politically useful statement.”
Meanwhile, Enanga said the Director Kampala Metropolitan Police, Assistant Inspector General of Police, Abbas Byakagaba met with members of Mbabazi’s campaign team and discussed modalities on security and traffic guidelines, surrounding his nomination and the subsequent event, of launching his Presidential campaign manifesto at Nakivubo.
