Starting yesterday, security deployed over 2000 police officers and crime preventers to secure the election.

The day started with the arrest of Bobi Wine’s polling agents.

Later, candidate Muwadda Nkunyingi was also arrested and injured for refusing to vote from the allocated polling station.

Police chases Bobi Wine’s supporters

In the afternoon, chaos broke out in Kasangati after Bobi Wine’s supporters claimed the ruling National Resistance Movement [NRM] had hidden pre-ticket ballot papers in a resort.

This led to a confrontation with police which resulted in the arrest of several supporters.

The running battles between voters and police were interrupted by a heavy down pour amidst which police called for more reinforcements.

Army vehicles then started patrolling the roads to strengthen the already tight security.

Later, military police [red tops] also joined the chase making a polling exercise a seemingly battlefield.

Police chief Kale Kayihura arrived moments later at Kasangati Ssaza grounds where the main counting and tallying exercise is being held.

The other candidates in the race are FDC leaning independents, Sowedi Kayongo Male and Edward Kasasa.
