Do You Want Us To Kneel Before You And Ask For Permission? People Power Fires Back At Enanga After Police Tasks Them To Write Formally Instead Of Dumping Their Consultation Letters At Police…

Published

Police spokesperson Fred Enanga has advised presidential hopeful who also doubles as the People Power boss Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine to formally inform police and all the law enforcement forces instead of dumping his letters at their station.

On Sunday 16th February, Bobi Wine announced that he is resuming his consultations on Monday 24th February and his first meeting is scheduled to take place at Pope Paul memorial hotel in Ndeeba, Rubaga division, Kampala.

While addressing the press on Monday at police headquarters at Naguru, Enanga said that Bobi Wine just dumped his letter at police without giving a clear description of his meetings.

“Yes we received the letter informing us about Hon Robert kyagulanyi’s consultation meetings; the letter indicates that his (Bobi Wine) first meetings will be held at Pope Paul’s Memorial Hotel, but the way he informed the police was informal, you do not have to just dump the letter,” he said.

He added that in the last meeting that Bobi Wine held with the Electoral Commission (EC) officials at the EC offices, Bobi Wine and other stake holders were guided to formally communicate to EC and police and after call a   meeting to harmonise the positions of all parties involved.

Enanga said that instead of following the agreed procedures, Bobi Wine decided to kick off his meeting without agreeing with other parties which contradicts with the agreement he made at EC.

“His delegation made 10 points on how his consultations will be streamlined and we all agreed that anyone who is planning to consult should approach the police and layout his or her arrangement but not to dump and go,” Enanga insisted.

Last month, all Bobi Wine’s consultation meetings were blocked due to allegations that they lacked clear description and clearance from the law enforcement bodies.

However, when the Grapevine contacted People power spokesperson Joel Ssenyonyi to comment on the above allegations from Police, Ssenyonyi denied working against the law and revealed that police is looking for ways of blocking their meeting.

“What I can say is that police is only forging all possible tricks to block us from conducting our meeting, they told us to forward our plans earlier and we did it. When they say that the means of communication we used was not formal, do they want us to go kneeling to prove to them how serious we are? Ssenyonyi asked.

He further added that they agreed on organizing their meetings in a closed place something that they did.

“In the meeting, we agreed that police should not block us with stupid reasons and that is what they have started now, our letter was accompanied with clearance receipts of the venues, we are going to meet in a closed place, what do they want us to do?” Ssenyonyi asked.

“I urge Enanga to let us do our consultations because we are doing everything within the law,” Senyonyi added.

Muhoozi was wishing Rwandan president Paul Kagame and the people of Rwanda a respectful Kwibuka. Kwibuka means ‘to remember’ and describes the annual commemoration of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda.

This year marks the 26th commemoration of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi.

Lt. Col. Nakalema Directs Arrest of Asian Tycoon Abid Alam Over Rape, Torture Allegation In Mubende…

Published

on

The State House Anti- corruption unit boss Lt. Col. Edith Nakalema has directed the Uganda Police Force to summon Indian Investor Abid Alam to Kasanda police station to record a statement on allegations of torture and rape.

According to credible sources at the Anti-corruption unit, Nakalema today morning talked to Maj. General Sabiiti Muzeeyi and asked him to intervene and assist a one Arthur Mugyenyi who accuses Alam’s workers of torturing his family members and raping his wife in presence of their children.

Sources further revealed that Mugyenyi with the help of their area Member of Parliament Simeo Nsubuga petitioned Nakalema’s anti-corruption unit claiming that they were not helped by the area police when Alam’s goons terrorised them. Last week, Nsubuga said that Alam sent 60 workers to Mugyenyi’s home with machetes and threatened to kill Mugyenyi and his family members.

He said Alam’s workers also cut down Mugyenyi’s banana plantation, destroyed his two houses, and took his 200 cows and 500 goats in a bid to evict him from his land.

Efforts to speak to Alam were futile since his known phone numbers were off.

Ugandans and Africans who have been plying their trade in China have cried to their governments to get them out of China.

According to a video from one of the Ugandans who is locked down in china, that was shared by Kampala Central legislator Mohammad Nsereko, they are being ejected from houses, denied access to health care and ejected from public transport and already 4 of their colleagues have died under unclear circumstances.

“The Chinese are discriminating us, when we enter their busses they all run out of the bus. These people are showing us their true colours, we are asking government to help. The Chinese should allow us to go home instead of forcefully arresting us and testing us,” he said.

He added, “We are being tortured, i call upon government to help us leave this country. Already four of our colleagues are dead. Let them allow us to go home. The landlords are chasing us from their houses and asking for a lot of money in rent yet we are not working. Everywhere we go we are being chased, we are now in hiding.”

Nsereko called upon government to immediately intervene and stop this alleged discrimination and inhuman treatment.

“I have received disturbing reports and videos of Ugandans and Africans in China being treated in a degrading manner. I have been informed that some have been ejected from houses, others denied access to health care and ejected from public transport. This is very unfortunate; we call upon the Ugandan government to intervene immediately in this matter.”
