“We have received information that there are some people planning to cause chaos between the 3rd and 7th February 2021.They are moving around spreading harmful propaganda that the country will shut down during those days. They are intimidating taxi drivers and the public against being on the road and places of work during those days. I call upon anyone to disassociate themselves from this evil plan. The country is safe and security will work fast to arrest anyone planning to create chaos,” Ms. Nabakooba announced on her twitter account.
