Police have issued a directive banning the ongoing mobilization tours by National Unity Platform president, Robert Kyagulanyi, also known as Bobi Wine.
A statement issued by the deputy Inspector General of Police, Maj Gen Geoffrey Katsigazi Tumusiime indicated that Kyagulanyi and his NUP supporters have disregarded a number of guidelines provided to them by police.
Maj Gen Katsigazi said while they completely support the right of individuals, groups and other citizens to peacefully gather or assemble, and make their views on matters of public policy, they have noticed that, in all areas where the NUP mobilization activities have been carried out, there have been total breaches to the guidelines.
Police said the mobilization tours and rallies are done in open spaces which are difficult to manage, adding that currently, the National Unity Platform uses poorly trained people to act as guards which puts the lives of their supporters and well-wishers in danger.
In the statement released today, the deputy IGP indicated that the mobilization tours by Kyagulanyi have seen property destroyed and some people injured in the various parts of the country they have been so far held.
On Monday police said Kyagulanyi is being investigated over sectarian remarks he made while in Luweero.
Early this week, NUP president, Robert Kyagulanyi said security was using the bomb threat to curtail their mobilization tours.
