Today the 27th May 2024 the leadership of National Platform (NUP) an opposition political party, have held an engagement meeting with the Uganda Police Force at the headquarters in Naguru, with an aim of settling their grievances inregards to the ongoing party mobilisation and registration campaign.

The meeting comes after, NUP leadership wrote a letter to the uganda police force on 23rd May 2024  protesting against the brutality meted out on them by the Police and Military on Wednesday, 22nd May 2024, and the illegal obstruction of their activities.

According to the deputy police spokesperson ACP Nabakka Claire the following have been agreed upon by the two parties;

1.The NUP Leadership should, in all their notifications, write officially to the IGP early enough as per the law to allow UPF management to reply in time and copy their letters to the Territorial Commanders.

2.The District Security Committee shall carry out an assessment of security at the venue, environs, and the route that the NUP members intend to use before the meetings. The committee will work together with the Liaison Officer of NUP to agree on an appropriate venue where Police can effectively provide security. The assessment will be in coordination with town clerks who always grant permission for venue usage.

3.The NUP Leadership will provide a liaison officer whose role will be to coordinate with Police Headquarters and Unit Commanders regarding preparations for holding their activities and following up on security concerns from the party.

4.The meeting urged NUP Leadership to prevail over their members who wear military insignia, as these acts contravene the law. Persons found culpable shall be dealt with individually.

5.Regarding the alleged confiscated NUP items by security, it was agreed that a follow-up will be made by the Director of Operations, and communication will be made later.

6.Regarding NUP members arrested for acts contravening the law, the meeting agreed that the NUP Liaison Officer should always contact Police for follow up.
