Police Investigating Anti-government Leaflets Circulated In Mityana

Security agencies in Mityana have kicked off an investigation into the source of leaflets in Mityana announcing a war against the government.

According to the police, these anonymous letters are directed to the government, public institutions and security installations. In particular, though, the perpetrators targeted the Mityana Central Police Station (CPS).

“The bandits have also threatened to torch Mityana Junior Primary School. The people behind the leaflets also attempted to burn a school but the fire was stopped,” the Wamala Region Police spokesperson Ms Rachel Kawala disclosed.

The epigraph in the leaflets indicates they are circulated by a group describing itself as “Uganda Coalition Front for Change”. On one of the leaflets, the coalition said they have launched a war against the NRM government and asked the citizens for assistance and maximum cooperation. On another, they revealed their intent to attack the Mityana CPS in a deadly manner.

Ms Kawala on Friday said the police is not taking these threats lightly.

“We cannot allow the reoccurrence of subversive activities in our country because the consequences are dire. Our joint operations have been intensified to arrest and prosecute the suspects,” she warned.

The police have now embarked on sensitizing the masses to be vigilant and report any suspicious events and characters.

On a flipped page, the police has also in its custody five suspects for possession of military uniforms in Mubende district. Apparently, these five have been participating in robberies that were reported in different parts of the district.

Authorities arrested the group in Kibaati- Kasaana Ward, East Division, Mubende Municipality on Thursday.

“Upon searching their residence, our officers recovered several house breaking equipments, a toy gun and two pairs of army uniforms,” Ms Kawala said on Friday.

The suspects face charges of possessing government stores, suspected stolen items and breaking implements.
