Youth across Lango Sub-region Tuesday afternoon roughed up NRM officials Richard Todwong and Emmanuel Dombo at Lango College Sports ground.
The youth got angry after learning that President Museveni who was addressing another scientific rally at Lira Golf course could not meet them as earlier arranged.
Reports emerging indicate that the President declined to meet the youth after learning that they had not undergone COVID -19 tests to ascertain their safety against the virus.
Against this backdrop, he assigned his secretariat staff to go and attend to the youth at their meeting at Lango College school sports ground.
However, upon reaching there, Todwong and Dombo found youth who were already charged and uncompromising to listen to anyone.
They then demanded to be given transport so as to return to their respective districts.
They became rowdy and abusive and declined to receive the 100,000 shilling transport token given to each of them.
Others claimed to have incurred much higher costs to travel to Lira.
