The NRM Secretary General, Justine Kasule Lumumba has said police officers who are selectively enforcing Ministry of Health guidelines meant to prevent the spread of Coronavirus are doing a disservice to the ruling party.
Addressing journalists yesterday, Lumumba said it makes no sense for officers to fail to enforce the set guidelines in the name of trying to please members of the ruling party.
The NRM Secretary-General urged top police commanders to ensure the guidelines are enforced to the latter but warned that officers who don’t want to heed to the same should better leave the force.
Lumumba’s comments come on the backdrop of accusations from members of the public, especially from the opposition who have castigated police for dispersing their gatherings for not following Covid-19 guidelines but turn a blind eye to those organized by the ruling party.
Despite processions during the nomination of presidential candidates being banned by the Electoral Commission, a group dressed in NRM yellow T-shirts were seen making processions in various parts of the city as their presidential candidate, Yoweri Museveni was being nominated at Kyambogo.
However, there was chaos at Kisekka market when the procession was hurled with stones and others beaten by groups of other people who accused police and other security agencies of selectively enforcing the guidelines. Ends.
