information pills geneva;”>erectile "sans-serif";”>This was revealed by Deputy Inspector General of Police, John Martins Okoth-Ochola while meeting “Black Monday” Movement activists at Police Headquarters in Kampala on Tuesday.

Okoth-Ochola said according to the Constitution, Police does not have powers to drop the case but the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP).

The Police chief was responding to a question from one of the activists on the fate of Niringiye who was on Monday arrested alongside other activists for distributing a controversial newsletter at Makerere University.

Police said the newsletter carried “inciting messages” before detaining Niringiye at Wandegeya Police Station where he was grilled for over 8 hours.

He was released on Police bond.

Okoth-Ochola said Police would take Niringiye’s file to DPP “for legal advice on whether to proceed with the case or to drop it.”


The meeting was chaired by Okoth-Ochola, attended by the Commandant Kampala Metropolitan Police, Andrew Kaweesi, Police PRO, CP Judith Nabakooba, Ag. Commissioner of Police in charge of Media and Political Crime, Fred Mirondo and other Senior Police Officers.

The Black Monday group was led by Ronald Ssewakiryanga, others were Jackie Asiimwe (Fida Uganda), Kagaba Cissy (Anti-Corruption Coalition), Arthur Larok (Action International Uganda), James Mukasa (URA), Justus Rwagamba, Mohamed Ndifuna, Ronald Okello (PUIU), and Emmanuel Kitamirike (Uganda Youth Network).

The activists say they are fighting the deeply entrenched corruption in the country and are appealing to the public to rise up and step up the fight against the vice.

Police has since accused the campaigners of inciting violence and holding illegal assemblies that disrupt traffic and business.
