The UPF would like to thank all Ugandans and everybody living in Uganda for the responsible citizenry role you played during the just concluded Presidential and Parliamentary elections. We re-affirm that the remaining part of the Election process will be peaceful and calm as enshrined in the Constitution Cap 3 (V) The State shall provide a peaceful, secure and stable political environment which is necessary for economic development.
Tomorrow 24th February 2016, Ugandans will vote to elect a Lord Mayor for KCCA, District L.C 5 Chairpersons, Directly Elected Councilors and Women Councilors. Area Police commanders are mandated to work closely with the candidates and their supporters to ensure security at the polling stations and during tallying. All Police Officers are reminded to maintain law and order.
This statement therefore serves to remind all citizens and people living in Uganda of their cardinal duty to enhance peace as their ultimate responsibility during and after the polls. The Uganda Police Force will continue to closely work with the populace in order to sustain a secure and peaceful environment where Citizens and Business people can conduct their normal activities. During this election period, school programs will run normally and all Ugandans as per the Constitution Cap 3 (xvii) must promote responsible parenthood in ensuring that children of school going age report to schools safely.
No criminal acts intended to disrupt these programs will be allowed.
