The Prime Minister Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda told the media today after the Interparty Organization for Dialogue (IPOD) meeting held in Kampala that different clashes reported in various areas between police and opposition political parties are uncalled for and could be avoided if the planners and the security agencies cooperated.
IPOD is composed of Justice Forum (JEEMA), NRM, and Forum for Democratic Change, DP, and Uganda People’s Congress (UPC) and are trying to find a neutral ground to political operations as the country draws to the next general elections.
