Uganda Police Force has cancelled its blood donation drive that was supposed to take place on Friday at the Constitutional Square.

In a notice posted on their official Facebook Page, Police said that the donation will not take effect in a bid to celebrate the International Women’s Day which is scheduled to take place next week on Thursday.

They said they will communicate a new date soon for the donation.

“This is to inform the public that the blood donation exercise that was to take place tomorrow 2/3/2018, in celebration of International Women’s Day has been postponed. A later date will be communicated,”

The development comes at a backdrop when members of the opposition led by Mukono Municipality MP Betty Nambooze are planning to mobilize hundreds of people to storm City Square to donate blood.
