Planned anti-corruption march to parliament is not cleared- Police

Police have warned that the planned march to parliament by anti -corruption crusaders is illegal, sicne it has not been cleared. “We are informed of an ongoing mobilization calling for people to march to parliament but we want to warn organisers that given the lack of transparency and a potential of disorder, we are against this march,” police spokesperson, Kituuma Rusoke said on Monday. Talk of a march to Parliament on July 23 in protest against fraudulent conduct by those in power keeps gaining traction, especially on social media. Organisers say they want to show dissatisfaction against Parliament and the way it uses of public funds . Speaking on Monday, the police spokesperson said as security agencies, they have not been informed of the said planned protest that he warned is likely to escalate into disorder on Kampala roads. Rusoke said that by mobilizing behind scenes, the said protest is likely to be disastrous , adding that as security, they will not allow it to continue. “We have seen organizers using social media to mobilise people to parliament. We respect the constitutional right to carry out a peaceful demonstration and right to assembly but we know some people with ulterior motives might want to hijack these activities,” Rusoke said. Quoting intelligence reports, the police spokesperson said everything points to the planned protest being disastrous. He urged the organisers to speak with police for guidance on how to express their dissatisfaction peacefully. “We are ready and open to guide people in exercise of their rights but without any jeopardizing public safety.” The development comes in the wake of deadly protests in Kenya a few weeks ago over the controversial Finance Bill, 2024 which had proposed a wide array of tax and administrative measures affecting different tax laws. The protest saw a dozen of Kenyans killed but their government later withdrew the controversial law. The Ugandan government recently warned Ugandans against replicating the Kenyan protests.

NUP warned against recruiting experienced but unsettled politicians from existing political parties

This month, the National Unity Platform, marks exactly four years in the political field since it rebranded from the National Unity, Reconciliation, and Development Party and merged with the People Power movement led by Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, who is currently the party president. The party gained momentum during the 2021 general election, where it claimed several leadership positions across the country from lower councils to Parliament level. With over 1000 councillors that were elected during what critics describe as the 2021 election wave, the party also brought 57 legislators to Parliament, making it the leading Opposition Party in the 11th Parliament. The NUP spokesperson Joel Ssenyonyi says although the journey has been filled with ups and downs, they remain proud of their achievements as a party. According to Dr. John Paul Kasujja, a political analyst, the party came with strength and has maintained its momentum. He however warns against the growing internal conflict, advising the NUP leadership to recruit their own politicians rather than relying on aging politicians with hidden motives. ‘’Train your politicians from within; do not rely on those you found in the field as you do not know the deals they made with the government, nor their motives,’’ Kasujja noted. While analysts allude to the emerging internal rifts, Ssenyonyi says they expected all the betrayal in the political field. "We expected all these in the political arena, but we stay focused on our mission and distance ourselves from those who betray our cause,’’ says Ssenyonyi Kasujja credits NUP for trying to fight corruption among its members and the government, and mobilize youth both within and outside the country. "They have tried to stand firm in the political storms, although the government has hindered them by denying them permissions for rallies and preventing them from going wherever they wish.’’ Despite the progress, Kasujja notes several challenges such as low penetration in villages to mobilize support. Kasujja says given the current political environment, NUP must strategize to maintain their support and build the party beyond 2026. Emphasizing that NUP’s stability will depend on the political climate during the next election. NUP spokesperson, Ssenyonyi adds that despite the current challenges, they will persevere. They are now preparing for celebrations to mark their four-year anniversary as NUP and have requested Kololo grounds for the event, awaiting approval. In four years, NUP became the third party after UPC and FDC to establish headquarters, a leadership school, and gain majority seats in Parliament with a presidential candidate coming second in a presidential race.
