Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson Patrick Onyango has cautioned people who he says are mobilizing hooligans and disguise them as motorcycle boda boda operators to carry out demonstrations next week.
“We have received credible information that opportunistic people are mobilising hooligans and disguise them as motorcycle (boda boda) operators to carry out demonstrations next week to disrupt government systems to ease the lock down after successful containment of the spread of Coronavirus in the community.
According to intelligence information, these demonstrations are being planned, mobilised and sponsored by opportunistic people within Kampala Metropolitan Policing area.
They are also mobilising boda boda operators to disrupt the government efforts in Coronavirus containment at the time when there are systematic processes to ease the lock down.
We want to appeal to the public, especially boda boda operators, not to be lured into illegal activities by opportunistic people, who are working for their own benefits.
We caution anyone who intends to engage in criminal activities that the long arm of the law will catch up with them” reads a statement by police spokesperson SP Patrick Onyango
