Top security chiefs from Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF), and police yesterday held a crisis meeting that lasted for over five hours over nominations of National Unity Platform( NUP) presidential flag bearer Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi wine.
The crisis meeting that lasted over 5 hours was held yesterday evening at Constitutional Square in the Kampala capital city.
According to our security spies, the meeting was chaired by Kakiri Division one commander Maj General Sam Kawaga deputized by KMP Commander Moses Kafeero and military police commander Col Keith Katungi.
The meeting was also attended by Regional police commanders “RPCs”, all division police commanders, “DPCs”, intelligence officers from Kampala metropolitan area.
Our spies added that, Gen Kawaga warned officers not to be reckless during operation saying that it will put the whole of Kampala on tension because of political actors involved.
“Officers, this time round, no jokes while in operation because the political actors involved especially People power and FDC camps are rude, rough and chaotic and we must deal with them professionally,” our source quoted Gen Kawaga warning officers.
Our spies told us that security chiefs viewed and discussed an operational plan to be used and found out that over 30,000 officers both plain and in uniform from UPDF and police will be deployed to encounter all routes that opposition politicians tend to use while going for their nominations.
“We have a very big task ahead of us for deploying at Bobi wine’s home in Magere, his offices at Kamwokya then on the way to Kyambogo and going back with his supporters,” adds another top officer who attended the meeting.
Our spy also told us that the meeting focused mainly on Bobi wine because of his support in Kampala that involves mainly the unruly and chaotic youth that are found fighting with security.
Early this week, Kampala metropolitan police spokesperson Patrick Onyango warned all the presidential flag bearers that they will be arrested and detained should they fail to comply with EC’s guidelines on their nomination days.
