Uganda Police Force has warned the public especially social media users and bloggers against fabricating reports about the ongoing investigations of some top officials of MTN telecom company.
According to the law enforcement agency, several individuals have created sensational stories aimed at steering speculation in the media which is misleading the public.
Police spokesman CP Fred Enanga warned on Monday that if the authors of such reports don’t stop and desist from issuing opinions about the investigations, they can easily endanger national security.
He revealed that individuals writing sensational social reports on the ongoing investigations are aiming at dragging Uganda into a diplomatic crisis with its ally countries.
He strongly refuted allegations that the investigations have sparked off a crisis between Uganda and Rwanda, saying that “That’s not true and baseless.”
Police last week arrested, grilled and deported some top officials from MTN company for engaging in acts that compromise national security.
In a statement, police said that the officials were accused of inciting violence and also using their positions as a tool to archive ill motives.
The deported expatriates are Olivier Prentout, a French national, Ms Elsa Mussolini, an Italian and Ms Annie Tabura a Rwandese national.
The police publicist said that investigations are still ongoing and a report shall be released soon after.
