Police continues to Play hide and seek as People Power Movement gets closer to its consultation meeting D-day.
With only three days left to the first People Power Movement consultation meeting, Police has failed to respond to the movement’s letters notifying them of their consultations.
Kyadondo East legislator Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine said that police had done a lot in frustrating their previous planned meetings that were scheduled for January and now even after agreeing with Police they are yet to receive a response from Police.
The People Power Movement together with its leader Bobi Wine group are scheduled to resume their consultations nationwide on Monday, February 24, 2020, starting with Kampala at Pope Paul memorial hotel in Ndeeba.
The People Power Movement Spokesperson Joel Ssenyonyi revealed that they had written to Police twice notifying them about the movement’s intentions to hold consultations but are yet to get feedback.
“On February 14, 2020, we wrote a letter to the police informing them of how we are to resume consultations on Monday next week. On failure to respond to the first letter, our lawyers Lukwago & Company Advocates wrote a second letter informing them about the same but they have not replied yet,” Ssenyonyi said.
On 6th January, the Uganda Police force arrested Bobi Wine at Kasangati town in Wakiso district as he was heading to Gayaza town to consult his voters on his ambitions to stand for president in 2021.
Police went ahead to block him from accessing all the scheduled consultation meetings across the Country citing failure by Kyagulanyi to adhere to guidelines set out in the Public Order Management Act
