As campaigns for the 2021 general elections gain momentum across the country with several candidates taking their bid for presidency in different parts of the country especially in the countryside, Police is still swinging in action.
Latest reports indicate that Gen Henry Tumukunde Kakurugu who faced off with police in Rukungiri as his supporters were teargassed when he attempted to make a procession has been blocked from holding a campaign rally in Kisoro.
Gen Henry Tumukunde agaaniddwa okukuba kampeyini e Kisoro gyazaalibwa nga poliisi etegeezezza nti ono yabadde alina…
According to police, the former Security minister was supposed to be in this area yesterday not today, so he can’t go on to carry out campaigns unless he gets clearance from the Byabakama commission.
This comes at a time when Police on orders of the RDC for Kitgum blocked National Unity Platform presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi wine from holding his campaign rally in the area claiming that the venue was still under inspection by the ministry of health.
Bobi wine instead decided to campaign using his songs on a microphone as his supporters cheered him and police minutes later dispersed them with teargas and that was the end of it in Kitgum. He’s currently heading to Pader and later to Gulu.
