Police of Africa gave warnings to the people and said that they would not be going to tolerate the abusive language on social media by a section of public members, singling out lawyer Isaac Ssemakadde whom they say is in no path of exercising their freedom by abusing others.
According to ‘Charles Twine’ the Police Crime Investigation Division called ‘Ssemakadde’ for investigation over offensive communication and his cyber stalking of Justice’ Musa Ssekanna’ of the high court and several other high rankings government officials.
As per Twine, Police have noted some severe concerns that some people face regarding their work, even after doing fair work for the public, and people are targeting them. It is estimated that stalkers have some grudges against them. They are also facing character association. Their main target is government workers. It seems like that, and they are targeting those who are doing their work sincerely and whose priority is their work.
While discussing the motive of the people behind these acts, the CID spokesperson stated Police would fight tooth and nail to ensure offenders are brought to book to answer for their actions.
“It is not acceptable that you just wake up in the morning and start abusing on the phone to the speaker, then you just called the judge and starting abusing him and then to the head of state. That bullshit is intolerable. And the main thing is they do it with impunity. We have heard some people saying that this is their right to abuse. They call you foolish and stupid, and then they say this is their right.”
“Whereas you have your right, it is very clear by article 43 of the constitution that enjoy your rights and people have “freedom of speech” but, no person should bias towards their fundamental freedoms or rights of other people. It beats logic when officers of court do it. You can’t be a lawyer and abuse others.”
From now on, the CID spokesperson stated Police would start studying the mental status of those accused of abusing others before charges are slapped against them.
“We understand that some people really have major issues regarding their mental health. They may be victims of mental health or illness. We will want to verify whether they are okay.”
Twine also cautioned the public against sharing the abusive statements made by “these people.”
