STATEMENT ON THE SECURITY OF ASPIRANT AMAMA MBABAZI
 
It has come to our attention that a gang of hooligans in the guise of being "crime preventers" have been deployed in Jinja with specific instructions to do everything necessary to not only disrupt Amama's meetings but also to maim,  injure or kill him.
 
We are appalled at the extent to which some people are willing to go to deny Amama the right to consult and the people of Uganda the right be consulted.
 
We are mindful of the fact that it is the role of the police and security agencies to protect Amama, his team and the people of Jinja. Equally, it is their role to protect and preserve the peace.
 
For his part, Amama will continue to hold peaceful consultations in Jinja and all the other areas as permitted by law and expects that the State will play it's role effectively.
