KASESE RDC WARNS NUP MEMBERS IN THE DISTRICT AGAINST PLANNED DEMONSTRATIONS

BY JOACKIM KULE

The Kasese Resident District Commissioner has warned a section of the National Unity Platform –NUP members and supporters in the district against holding any form of demonstration.

Lt. Joe Walusimbi says his office has received intelligence information that some NUP members in the district are planning to hold a demonstration over the arrest and alleged continued detention of their leaders.

On November 04, 2021, security operatives arrested five NUP members in Kasese town and later charged them with allegedly plotting to overthrow the current government.

The five  including Bryan Basisa, the NUP Kasese District Chairperson; Geoffrey Bwambale, the NUP Coordinator for Bundibugyo; Atanazio Isande from Ntoroko district; Isaac Mumbere-NUP flag bearer for Nyamwamba Division in Kasese Municipality in the last general elections and Oniz Kule, a boda – boda rider from Hima Town.

On November 18, 2021, the State asked court for more time to complete investigations into the charges against the incarcerated members of NUP in Kasese. The State also sought to amend the charge sheet arguing that there are additional grounds to pin the suspects to the crime.

At a press briefing today afternoon at his office in Kasese town, Lt. Walusimbi warned a team of members headed by one Samuel Masereka to either stop their planned demonstration or wait for the consequences of their premeditated activity.

He urged them to wait for court to do its work or follow the legal procedures for holding a demonstration, arguing that failure to go by the law would lead to their arrest.
