Judith Nabakooba Warns Anyone Threatening To Shut Down Uganda With Protests

The ICT and Information Minister Judith Nabakooba has warned that security will immediately arrest people or groups attempting to protest in various parts of the country.

While she addressed journalists on Sunday, Nabakooba said the government intercepted news about plans by people planning to cause chaos.

She said that the unnamed people plan to start protests in different parts of the country between February 3 and 7, 2021. Nabakooba however warned that they will regret their actions.

‘’These individuals are moving around spreading harmful propaganda that the country will shut down during those days. They are intimidating taxi drivers and the public against being on the road and places of work during those days. I call upon anyone to disassociate themselves from this evil plan,’’ Judith Nabakooba said.

She said the country is safe and security will work fast to arrest anyone planning to create chaos.
The comments from the minister come on the backdrop of NUP’s principal, Robert Kyagulanyi’s protest of the January 14 election results. The Electoral Commission announced Museveni as the winner.

Kyagulanyi insists the polls were marred with irregularities. His party’s lawyers will challenge the election before the Supreme Court later today.

Previously, the president of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni warned that security deployed in the city will not tolerate any forms of violence.

He asked Ugandans to forget about the violence. They should not even dream about it because he said it will not work out.

He told Ugandans that all these violent means are just creating blood pressure in them for no reason at all.
