Addressing journalists at the police headquarters, the police spokesperson Emilian Kayima said all organizers of any event have to inform the inspector general of police in writing indicating the measures they have in place to manage the crowds.

Kayima adds that for any event to be Okayed, it also has to prove its capacity to handle emergencies and elaborate access to control measures.
