Chaos as Besigye Sneaks into Makerere

Besigye had been sneaked into the university campus in a Toyota Prado registration number UAM 736E belonging to the Makerere LCV woman councillor Doreen Nyanjura.
Campaigns came to a standstill today at Makerere University after police used bullets and teargas to scatter FDC party supporters together with former presidential candidate Dr Kizza  Besigye.

Besigye had been sneaked into the university campus in a Toyota Prado registration number UAM 736E belonging to the Makerere LCV  woman councillor Doreen Nyanjura. 

The car had accessed the university  through the Western gate . The vehicle was intercepted by operatives not in uniform at the University main library opposite the school of agricultural sciences. 

Several police officers have been injured during the scuffle as stones flew in exchange with teargas and bullets. Among the injured, Denis Nyanzi Kasibante, the Makerere University  OC station was hit by a huge block, leaving him bleeding. 

Not even the heavy deployment of police at the university could block the FDC man who came in disguised in a prado. Police fired teargas, pepper spray to students who had overpowered them. Besigye and the FDC crew had come to garner support for the FDC flag bearer Paul Kato. 

Elections which will involve about 22,000 student voters will be held tomorrow  at the 30 polling stations at the country's largest university including Kabanyolo  students hostel in Gayaza and Mulago for medical students.

Earlier in the day, the Kampala Metropolitan Police Commander Frank Mwesigwa while addressing the students body and the electoral commission officials issued police guidelines in which no politician from outside the university was allowed to attend the final rally which was this evening. 

Thousands are currently  roaming the university roads playing band with each of the 14 guild candidates with their processions
