Arua Boma Grounds has been booked by Arua Pentecostal Church for a crusade, forcing Besigye's mobilizers to shift their rally to Arua Golf Grounds.


Besigye will have stop overs to address short rallies in Ayivu, Terego, Madi and Vurra on Tuesday and will conclude with a bigger rally in Arua Municipality on Wednesday. 

Arua municipal town clerk, Francis Byabagambi says the church had already booked the Boma Grounds before the FDC team approached them.
