Security forces have heavily deployed on roads leading to Moroto town.
National Unity Platform (NUP) presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine is campaigning in the area today.
He set off Friday morning for Kaabong in Karamoja sub region.
From Kaabong, he connected to Kotido where residents were eagerly warming up to receive him.
Meanwhile, there is a heavy police deployment at every entrance point of Moroto town as Hon Kyagulanyi prepares to visit the town to hold his presidential campaigns today.
“We have recieved reports that people have been restricted from leaving their homes in yet another bid to stop the people from accessing the venue where the campaigns are to take place,” said NUP spokesperson Joel Ssenyonyi.
“Cleary, there is so much fear in the dictator’s camp.”
He said like it has been in the past, non of such actions by the regime can stop the people from asserting their voices.
