The ICT and Information Minister Judith Nabakooba has warned that security will not hesitate to arrest any individuals or groups of people threatening to hold protests in various parts of the country later this week.
Addressing journalists yesterday, Nabakooba said the government has got wind of plans by people she didn’t mention that are planning to cause chaos between February 3rd and 7th 2021 but noted they will regret their actions.
Nabakooba said individuals are moving around spreading harmful propaganda that the country will shut down during those days, intimidating taxi drivers and the public against being on the road and places of work during those days.
She said the country is safe and security will work fast to arrest anyone planning to create chaos.
The minister’s comments come as the National Unity Platform principal, Robert Kyagulanyi continues to protest the January 14th election results in which the incumbent, Yoweri Museveni was declared the winner.
Kyagulanyi insists the polls were marred with irregularities and his party’s lawyers are expected to challenge the election before the Supreme Court later today.
