The police in Kasese district have revamped security in the area to disband residents who tried to mobilize themselves with the aim of safeguarding the suspects who were arrested following the recent Kasese clashes.
Yesterday, police started shifting the suspects who were still detained in Kasese to Nalufenya prison in Jinja since they were going to be tried today at Jinja Magistrates Court.
However, some Kasese residents were hesitant to see their fellow residents being taken to Jinja to be charged so what they did, they started to mobilize themselves to steer the police away from the suspects.
This prompted police to command more force to disperse off the angry people who were willing to die in order to rescue the suspects. Police did everything possible to transfer the suspects thus ruining the residents’ plan.
