PRESS RELEASE

ORGANISED CRIMINAL GANG CLEARED OUT OF UGANDA HOUSE

Today, the Uganda Police has cleared the criminal gang (MOF Kanyamas) from Uganda Peoples Congress Headquarters building, Uganda House, and taken control of the security of the building.
This follows the accosting of the UPC Party President Hon. Jimmy Akena by Kanyamas when he visited the Milton Obote Foundation to deliver a letter to the Chairman of the Board of Governors. The incident clearly demonstrates the inappropriate use of Kanyamas as security personnel at Uganda House.
The President of UPC Hon. Jimmy Akena also happens to be a Member of the Milton Obote Foundation and was within his rights as per the ‘Amended’ Articles of Association of the Milton Obote Foundation to visit the offices. It is the nature of the letter which had earlier been subjected to a refusal of receipt by the General Manager of MOF, Mr. Oyepa that appears to have sparked the unfortunate scuffle when the UPC President Hon. Jimmy Akena sought to deliver it himself. (Please see attached).
Indeed the request contained in the letter itself is in line with the very same Articles of Association as stated in Article 8: “All Members shall be entitled to the free use of the Library of the Foundation and to all such information as the Foundation or any of its officers may be able to supply.”

The safety and security of tenants and as well as that of the general public has been seriously compromised ever since MOF saw fit to hire and station 100 plus Kanyamas at Uganda House right in the middle of the Central Business District, thus mocking police’s earlier efforts to clear the C.B.D. of organized criminal gangs.
MOF has continuously resisted attempts to employ an acceptable regulated security firm as advised by police, to ensure security. They instead resorted to the use of an organized criminal gang.
