Minister for Foreign Affairs, Sam Kahamba Kutesa has called upon Ugandans especially the Youth to distance themselves from the ongoing protests in different parts of the country.
These protests sparked off over the arrest and detention of Members of Parliament and others during the Arua municipality parliamentary campaigns.
Speaking to the Media on Friday afternoon, Kutesa said that government will not allow the peace and stability of the Pearl of Africa be destroyed by riotous people.
Kutesa added that the riots and protests in parts of the country have no effect on Uganda’s international relations therefore whoever plans to invest in them must be ready to face the law.
On a special note, Kutesa also condemned the manner in which the law enforcers harassed journalists on duty.
