Uganda: Church urges police to be impartial ahead of polls

[AEP] The Catholic Church in Uganda has entreated the police force to be impartial in their work as the country heads to the polls on February 18.

The letter, signed by Archbishop John Baptist Odama, the chairperson of the Uganda Episcopal Conference was also addressed to religious men and women, citizens and people of good will. The church said the onus lies on it to guide the East African nation as it prepares for the general elections.

The Catholic Church called on the police to be accountable to the people and not to any political group. This call comes at a time when allegations have been made against the police of bias towards the governing National Resistance Movement (NRM).
