Kampala — POLICE yesterday warned the Popular Resistance Against Life Presidency (PRALP) to desist from holding political rallies without their permission or face tough action.
Kampala Police chief Benson Oyo-Nyeko told journalists at the Central Police Station that the pressure group can only hold a rally after seeking permission.
"They should seek police permission before addressing a political rally. If they go ahead and do anything to the contrary, they should be prepared for anything," Nyeko warned.
He said for any such gathering, it was paramount that the organisers notify and seek police permission so that security can be provided.
Anti-riot police last week dispersed two rallies at the Makerere and Kyambogo universities organised by PRALP on grounds that the rallies were illegal since the group had not informed the Police about them.
But Police spokesman, Assuman Mugenyi, last week was also quoted as saying, "The groups are yet to come into legal existence after complying with the law."
The media yesterday reported that PRALP on Sunday took its anti third-term campaign to the church by distributing thousands of leaflets to worshippers.
