KAMPALA — Riot police and heavily armed UPDF soldiers have Thursday deployed at Electoral Commission on Jinja Road after Bobi Wine announced that he would storm the place.
Police pickup patrol vehicles are patrolling major streets in Kampala.
Bobi Wine on Wednesday announced that he would storm the EC to demand an explanation why they set guidelines for his consultations which he was following, but security forces are flouting the same.
“Tomorrow morning, we head to the Electoral Commission’s head offices to demand for answers about the continued blockage of these consultations,” he said.
Bobi Wine said his team is deliberate on exhausting all legal avenues.
“The election cycle has started. We are demanding for a level playing field to take on Mr. Museveni,” he added.
This was after Police frustrated three of his planned consultative meetings including one in his constituency.
Other meetings were due to take place in Gulu and Lira districts.
On Thursday, Bobi Wine and a number of his team members were forced to abandon their private cars and were bundled up into a police car which drove them at breakneck speed before dumping them at Karuma Bridge between Nwoya District and Kiryandongo.
Bobi Wine lasted the security forces over partisan actions and vowed to continue the fight despite the setbacks.
