Police Warns Against Voter Intimidation, Harassment Ahead of Polls


Police has sounded a warning to any individuals who intend to engage in acts of voter intimidation and harassment saying the force won’t hesitate to arrest and charge them.

“Those who are planning to harass voters on polling day will face the consequences. Police will not allow such acts to continue,” Police spokesperson Fred Enanga said.

Enanga was Monday afternoon addressing journalists in a security briefing at the Uganda Media Centre in Kampala.

He said that the force already has a video footage of supporters of one political party warning supporters of another party, a footage he said Police is reviewing to identify and apprehend the culprits.

Commenting about election day which is next week on Thursday, the Police mouthpiece said that they won’t tolerate any acts of violence both on D-day or in the days leading to Thursday January 14th.

The Country will be choosing the 10th President of the Republic in a nationwide poll set for late next week and as time draws to d-day, lots of unconfirmed reports have flooded social media.

Enanga cautioned the public to always verify information before sharing it further warning that it could cause the nation to erupt into violence.
