“We have been warmly welcomed in all the places we have visited, and the people’s common aspiration is evident they seek change,” the party emphasized.

Additionally, they announced their intention to communicate their plans for the upcoming second phase of activities, with a particular focus on the central region.

However, the party’s mobilization tours have been suspended by the police due to violations of established guidelines governing such activities nationwide.

These regulations, prescribed by law, required the National Unity Platform to secure permission from venue owners, hold gatherings in town halls or suitable enclosed spaces, abstain from organizing processions, and refrain from engaging in actions that could incite violence.

Deputy Inspector of Police Maj Gen Tumusiime Katsigazi pointed out that the party’s leadership had disregarded and violated these guidelines, necessitating police intervention. He also highlighted a specific incident in Kasana, Luwero, where the President of the National Unity Platform utilized a mobilization activity as a platform to incite violence, promote sectarianism, call for the removal of an elected government, and make defamatory statements against President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.
