The Deputy Inspector General of Police, Maj General Paul Lokech has warned that security will not hesitate to crush any elements involved in protests in Kampala and any parts of the country challenging President Museveni’s election.
National Unity Platform leader, Robert Kyagulanyi, also known as Bobi Wine yesterday afternoon declared himself the winner of the January 14 presidential election before asking his supporters to reclaim his 54.19% victory that he said was robbed from him by the Electoral Commission.
Kyagulanyi called upon all Ugandans to protest peacefully in any way they see fit as long as it is peaceful to reclaim what he called their victory.
However, speaking to our reporter, the Deputy Police chief, the protests are illegal and will be met with the resistance they deserve.
The Deputy Inspector General of Police said the outcome of the January 14th polls should be respected since it reflects the people’s choice.
Gen Lokech however asked members of the public to continue with their business and not to be distracted by anyone.
