Uganda police to crack down on horn-honking protest

After heavy crack-downs on 'walk-to-work' protests in Uganda, police are now preparing to crack down on anyone using motor vehicle hooters. This after the opposition called on people to sound their horns or whistle five times at 5pm. 
"[The] Car hooting act is illegal… what I can say is that any protester will be subject to arrest," [Police spokesman, Ibin Ssenkumbi] is quoted by Uganda's Daily Monitor newspaper as saying.
The opposition are protesting the long-standing rule of President Museveni, as well as high food and fuel prices - the inspiration for the 'walk-to-work' protests. 9 people have died since protests began in April.
