The Minister for presidency Esther Mbayo has said that as Government, they will continue blocking opposition politicians from holding rallies if they don’t abide by the law.
“I want to tell Ugandans that there are laws that govern this country. If one wants to address the people, he has to abide by the laws and rules that govern the country. If you are told to clear with the Police, go and clear with the Police. If you are told to clear with some security agencies go and clear with security agencies,” Mbayo told press yesterday.
“But the problem with our people, they are just moving without clearing with security agencies. There is nobody who is stopped from moving but how are you moving. We are looking at security of all Ugandans not security of individuals.”
“We shall continue doing our role as Government supposing one is not behaving the way they are supposed to behave,” Mbayo added.
Yesterday, opposition politician Dr Kiiza Besigye was blocked by Police from appearing on a radio talk show in Jinja.
Besigye is detained at Nalufenya maximum security prison.
