National Unity Platform (NUP) presidential contender Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine has Saturday morning been blocked from entering Nakasongola District, where he was set to kick off his presidential campaign trail for the Luwero Triangle.
According to Bobi Wine, on top of the police blocking him from entering Nakasongola District, the military has also imposed a daytime curfew in Nakasongola town, whereby they ordered all locals to remain locked up in their houses and forced traders to close shops.
The reason for the forceful orders is not yet clear but traders who had come early morning to conduct their usual business were left disappointed after police and military told them to close up because it is not safe for them to operate business as usual.
“A day time curfew has been imposed on the people of Luwero, Nakasongola and Nakaseke today ahead of our campaign. The military is beating people forcing them to close their shops and houses and ordering them to remain indoors. This is a place M7 calls his #Mecca. Bano batidde nnyo,” Bobi Wine wrote on social media, Saturday morning.
Bobi Wine was expected to hold a rally in Nakasongola District this morning before heading to Luwero and finally Nakaseke Districts.
However, by press time the police had not yet revealed why they had decided to block Bobi Wine’s presidential campaigns.
