Police to Besigye: Why Should We Bug Your Car?

Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga says promotes of violence will be dealt with harshly

The police force has denied reports that they planted a device in bid to track opposition strongman and FDC’s Dr Kizza Besigye.

Besigye on Sunday claimed that a ‘dangerous device’ had been planted on his car following its release from Wandegeya police station where it had been taken after being impounded in a fracas between the law enforcement officers and Besigye about three weeks ago.

Responding to a question from ChimpReports on Monday morning, check the police spokesperson Fred Enanga refuted the claims insisting they are baseless and not founded.

“We have so many methods of getting information about anyone intending to cause a security breach other than tracking. Why would we be tracking Dr. Besigye when we are stationed at his home as a preventive arrest measure?”Enanga wondered.

The police mouthpiece urged the opposition strongman being a man with a security background to carry out private investigations or involve police to be able to find out the source of the said gadget.

“Such devices have sources of monitoring to which signals are sent before running to social media. Why didn’t he ask for a thorough check-up before receiving the vehicle?”

Enanga added: “Why do it privately at his home without presence of the police? We have several methods of detecting those intending to disrupt security other than putting tracking devices.”
