He said at the same time, police has credible information that there are groups using the processions to cause violence and mayhem in the city including targeting parliament where the debate will be.

“Police recognises and has always facilitated the exercise of the right to demonstrate, peacefully and unarmed as provided for in the constitution,” Kayihura said.

He observed that police is obligated to keep law and order, prevent crime as well as protect life and property.

“All planners of such processions use other forms of demonstration and expression eg TV networks, radios and other electronic or print media or indoor meetings.”

He added: “All planners should be careful not to be used as cover for violent criminal attacks and other criminal activities.”

He cited a case on Monday where police refused clearance to Kampala traders who had planned an age limit protest and they complied

In Iganga, police on Tuesday fired teargas to disperse a group of youth activists opposed to the proposed age limit amendment.

The youths had gathered carrying placards before moving to the streets blocking traffic along the main highway.
