There is heightened police deployment in different parts of Kampala as National Unity Platform Presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi meets the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission.

Following the violence during Kyagulanyi’s campaigns in Kayunga Mukono on Tuesday, Kyagulanyi was forced to suspend his campaign trails and demanded to meet the EC Chairperson Justice Simon Byabakama over the continued harassment by security personnel.

On Tuesday several people including a police bodyguard attached to Kyagulanyi were injured as the police and army fired teargas and rubber bullets to disperse NUP supporters in Kayunga.

Kyagulanyi left Magere at his home at around 10:30 am and went to the NUP party offices in Kamwokya, where he picked other party officials including Joel Senyonyi the party spokesman, party legal lawyers, Asuman Basalirwa, and David Lubongoya who is also the General Secretary.

However, Kyagulanyi did not allow his supporters to accompany them to the electoral commission.

The police and military personnel have closed old Kira Road with Roadblocks at the Junction of Kyebando road and Kamwokya Market as police patrols and local defence units officers patrol the roads.

URN also observed deployments in Kisekka Market, Wandegeya, Mulago and parts of the Northern bypass and Jinja Road.

NUP supporters have also turned up in big numbers in Kamwokya waiting for Kyagulanyi’s address after the meeting Justice Byabakama.
