President Yoweri Museveni has warned opportunists who are bent on taking advantage of the situation in Kasese district with the intention of extorting money and give false information to the Police.
“I want to discourage opportunists who are taking advantage of this situation to create stampede, frame their friends and extort money. I want to warn them that it is illegal. It is a crime to give false information to government officers. It is also a crime to extort money and to blackmail. They should let the Police do its work professionally and truthfully and not by any falsehood,” he said.
