Uganda’s Inspector General of Police, Martin Okoth Ochola, has refused to apologize for the violence of security forces against the media.
Ochola was speaking at a pre-election news conference with senior security officials, on Friday.
“I have no apology. Actually, you are saying ‘is police apologizing for mishandling journalists?’ My answer is, I’m very sorry, excuse me, we shall not apologize. But we shall continue to help you not to go where danger is.” the police chief told newsmen at the conference.
