Enanga: We shall Crush Besigye’s Red Card & NUP Protests

Police spokesperson Fred Enanga has warned opposition politicians Dr Kizza Besigye of the People’s Front for Transition (PFT Red Card Movement) and National Unity Platform (NUP) leader Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine against engaging in protests to oust President Yoweri Kaguta Tibuhaburwa Museveni.

Last week, Dr Besigye announced the start of Red Card activities, starting with western Uganda.

Besigye has vowed to use his Red Card Movement to cause the collapse of Museveni’s regime.

Now, Enanga has told reporters at police headquarters in Naguru, Kampala that they are aware of plans by the opposition protests.

The police spokesperson further noted that police would not look on as Besigye and his colleagues disrupt peace.   

“Following intelligence gathered about plans by NUP and other violent groups and actors to hold riots and political demonstrations this week, we wish to inform the public that the security agencies are ready and prepared to counter all riots and illegal protests,” said Enanga.

“Although the extent of the threats cannot be predicted, we are taking no chances, following the continued and reckless statements by the anti-democratic forces and agents of disunity, embedded agitators of violence.”

He added: “We want to reassure the public that we have mobile and rapid, response teams on standby that are prepared across over 300 flashpoints to control crowds and also respond to any public safety needs.”
