Flavia Byekwaso and Police spokesperson Fred Enanga.
In part of the minutes of the meeting seen by this website, Kin Kariisa agreed with the security chiefs that all candidates of the NUP party would effective today not be granted media space if they appear in red berets. The media has also been urged not to give live coverage to Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert on his nomination day slated for November, 3 as government plans to descend on his supporters. The media has been regulated not to give coverage to some of the street clashes that would ensue between the police and NUP supporters on that day. The NBS chief tasked his fellow broadcasters not to derail from the new regulations as this would bear reprisals part of which include the withdrawal of the operation licence.
