Bobi Wine Nominated, FDC’s Amuriat Goes For Nomination Shoeless As Teargas, Bullets Rock City

The police fired teargas and rubber bullets in the air in a bid to disperse supporters of National Unity Platform (NUP) 2021 Presidential contenders Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu aka Bobi Wine and Forum  for Democratic Change’s Patrick Amuriat Oboi.

Although Bobi Wine managed to make it to Kyambogo following a tumultuous journey that involved police teargassing journalists and NUP supporters and was later nominated to contest for Presidency, for Amuriat it was an even weirder case because he had to walk barefooted to the nomination grounds after a rough scuffle with the police.

Speaking to journalists, Amuriat, who arrived unexpectedly at Kyambogo University after having refused  to be escorted by the police earlier on, said that the police had blocked him from accessing his offices at the FDC party headquarters  such that he could pick his nominations forms and other necessary documents.
