Written by on July 26, 2021

Inspector General of Police KakomaKanganja has directed police officers to use force on all political party leaders that are deliberately abrogating the electoral code of conduct and covid19 regulations under the guise of distributing face masks.

Mr. Kanganja says it has been observed that some political party leaders are using the distribution of face masks to gather large crowds which are turning out to be processions or rallies.

He has since directed that no one should be allowed to conduct such activities including the receiving of political leaders at airports or any other public place.

Mr. Kanganja says it is on record that due to covid – 19, all gatherings and activities that may attract huge crowds were suspended and the guidance was that only door to door campaigns should be allowed and with not more than three people. 


Meanwhile the Police chief has called for immediate arrest of political cadres who were seen and heard publicly insulting, intimidating and ridiculing a police officering video that recently went viral.
