Security officials have said that their siege at the home of NUP’s presidential candidate Bobi Wine will continue for an unspecified period of time.
Ever since Election Day on January 14, the army and police surrounded Kyagulanyi’s home in Magere, Wakiso, and the NUP offices in Kamwokya. This move has since blocked a number of people from accessing the offices of Kyagulanyi himself.
Police spokesperson, Fred Enanga addressed the press on Monday and confirmed the siege. He, however, noted that the siege is meant to prevent any form of violence. The police say violence might break out throughout the country should they let Kyagulanyi to the public.
‘’We want to assure Ugandans of peaceful aftermath of the elections. We have been able to counter most of the plans. There has been information of certain political parties and individuals coming up with plan B to instigate riots in protests of the outcome of the elections.
That’s why we have maintained a security cover around Kasangati and Magere, including the home of Kyagulanyi,’’ Enanga said.
What is on ground
On the contrary, though, there have been reports of Kyagulanyi and other presidential aspirants being put under house arrest.
The police further denied these allegations and said there is a controlled arrangement of visitations going in and out of Kyagulanyi’s home.
Kyagulanyi posted on his Twitter to express his disdain for the way the security are treating him and his visitors. He also said the US Ambassador to Uganda, on Monday Afternoon, was denied access to his home when he went to visit.
‘’This afternoon, the US Ambassador to Uganda made an effort to visit me. She was turned away from my gate by the soldiers who have held me and my wife captive for the past five days.” Kyagulanyi wrote.
