Police block NUP End of Year Prayers at Nsambya
Security agencies have blocked end-of-year prayers organized by the United Forces of Change at Nsambya Sharing Hall that were scheduled to take place today. Police say the organizers did not seek clearance.
According to SSP Patrick Onyango the PRO KMP, “the event was not cleared and therefore it will not take place. ”the plan was not cleared and therefore it will not take place.”
Onyango says that the security agencies resolved that all public events in the country must be cleared by the Inspector General of Police due to terrorism threats in the country.
“The organisers are advised to seek clearance before they can go ahead with their planned prayers. We advised them to go and attend prayers in other places of worship,” says Onyango.
He appealed to members of the public not to attend what he termed as an illegal gathering at Nsambya Sharing Hall today.
NUP Party Principal Robert Kyagulanyi, alias Bobi Wine called the act cowardice.
