Forum for Democratic Change members of parliament have criticized Police over continued disruption of their Party activities despite efforts to operate within the Law. Aswa County MP Reagan Okumu flunked by Tororo County MP Geofrey Ekanya, Rukungiri municipality MP, Roland Mugume Kaginda, and Kumi County Patrick Amuriat while addressing a joint Press Conference warned that if such interruption continues in such a manner the Party is ready to face them.
Okumu said that it is sad for the country for a party flag bearer to be picked from his home without the area local police knowing. He stressed that the state agents should not push the government political opponents to the wall because they also have capacity to spoil the political space they are trying to protect for the government in power. Okumu said Police should get prepared for daily clashes with the opposition because they’re going to roll out in all 120 Districts of Uganda opening party offices saying it’s within the Constitution of Uganda for parties to perform their duties.
He asked religious institutions not to be silent when citizens’ rights are abused. He noted that the Opposition has not interfered with Police work and therefore, Police should give them room to exercise their Political responsibility.
Tororo county MP Geofrey Ekanya said that FDC is to compile a list of brutalities committed against Ugandans by police under the command of the Inspector General of police General Kale Kayihura and drag him to African court of justice for prosecution.
