Army Withdrawn from City Center

The Joint Operations Command (JOC) has withdrawn military personnel who have been deployed on standby and patrolling the city Center.

The personnel mainly from the Special Force Command-SFC and Military Police were called in for reinforcement after supporters of Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi protested against his continued detention.

Since Monday, the army has been patrolling the streets in different parts of the town. They had also been deployed at various police stations.

However, yesterday, the soldiers were withdrawn from the city center, while those in the outskirts such as Najjera, Nalya, Northern bypass, Busega, and Makindye were maintained.

Those on standby in case of any chaos are stationed at Bwaise and Kalerwe roundabout, Kisekka Market Military police point, and Makindye military police headquarters.

The police spokesperson Emilian Kayima says police and sister security agencies will continue to monitor the situation.
