Police to be on full alert during Parliament session

Commander for NCD and Central Province, Sylvester Kalaut has assured the general public that police will not tolerate any mischievousness from the public during or after the Parliament sitting tomorrow.

Kalaut made this clear in a media briefing today anyone who tries to interrupt or take the law into their own hands will be dealt with accordingly.

NCD Metropolitan Superintendent Ben Turi says the police will not allow anyone coming into the city in convoys to disrupt the normalcy in the city.

Turi was  advised by Parliament security yesterday that there are limited spaces available for equal number of representatives from each province to stand in to hear the Vote of No Confidence tomorrow.

Turi says that unlike last Friday, there were seen to be a lot of people but from only one region and the police had to take control of the crowd.

Turi urges the public that for safety reasons, he believes that EMTV and NBC will be telecasting the sitting live tomorrow so the public should watch from the safety of their homes or listen in on the radio.

“We want peace and anyone who causes trouble and or injuries might not be served at the hospitals as some doctors and nurse might not want to treat them,” he says.

He adds that the public must take heed of these instructions and all activities of the city like bus services must continue their daily runs and just let the politicians play their game in the parliament tomorrow.

“Police headquarters and Central police will be assisting to make tomorrow as safe as possible for the general public in the nation’s capital and that normalcy prevails until the end of the Parliament sitting,” says Turi.
