He added that police and anybody that administrates the RDCs must pay for the losses incurred by the radio stations that were switched off. This impunity must be stopped immediately.

FDC administration has come with a plan either to DEFY Public order management act they termed “bogus law” or force the police to accept them and conduct their political activities in Uganda.
