Heavy deployment along Gayaza Road, Kasangati
and Magere village which is home of NUP leader Robert Kyagulanyi has caused
concern among some residents. The deployment by military, police and plain
clothes security personnel is noticeably heavy.
Some residents are describing the plainclothes
security personnel as strangers whose origin they do not know. Uganda Radio Network interviewed some of the
so-called strangers along Freedom Drive in Magere near the home of NUP’s
presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi and they said they came from Entebbe.
Kyagulanyi is set to be nominated tomorrow,
November 3rd at 9.00am.
William Kigozi, Chairman LC I of Magere village, claims he doesn’t know what
the “strangers” are up to.

bearer said that he will mobilize many people for a nomination procession which
is illegal and should it be dome, security has to be in position to deal with
