Many of the people of Kassanda did not go to their gardens today as they started their wait for NUP Presidential Candidate Robert Kyagulanyi early in the morning.

However security has been tightened as residents of Kassanda are in a state of high excitement ahead of Kyagulanyi's arrival.

The residents who started gathering as early as 10am claim that there was simply no way they could not stay in their gardens yet Kyagulanyi was scheduled to campaign in Kassanda.

However, the police and military personnel have been deployed to ensure that people do not gather in big numbers as per the guidelines issued by the electoral commission to prevent the spread of covid-19 pandemic in the ongoing presidential and parliamentary campaigns.

A number of anti-riot police vehicles are patrolling the entire town of Kassanda as they wait for the candidate to hold his rally at Kalwana play ground in Kalwana sub county.

Geoffrey Nkugwa says that the people  of Kassanda have great hope in Kyagulanyi whom they expect to respect people’s demand for federo sysstem of governance not only for Buganda but even other parts of the country.

He also expects Kyagulanyi to open up the lakes whose access to local fishermen was curtailed by the NRM regime.

Cue out: .. okugagulako ga ssente,” //

  Segujja Francis a resident of Busweka village also in Kassanda says that like many other residents, he abandoned work on his garden for today to attend Kyagulanyi’s rally because he loves him.

He says that people are ready to show their love for Kyagulanyi no matter whether force security officers apply to disperse them.

// “cue in: nebwebanaatukuba tear gas…

Cue out: .. abantu bonna bazze,” //

Tamale Aloysius, also a resident of Kasanda believes that it is the people in rural parts of the country who are overwhelmingly showing support to Kyagulanyi the-singer-turned-politician. He say that the people in villages have suffered a lot at the hands of the current government which has not extended services to them.

// “ cue in: emyaka 35 egyo ..

Cue out: .. nebajja nebakungaana wano,” //

Meanwhile, the police are currently camping at Mwasabigo swamp which separates Kassanda central business district from Kalwana where Kyagulanyi is expected to hold his rally at 3.00pm. But the police are not stopping any person from accessing the venue yet, at 3.00 pm.
