Security has said their siege at the home of National Unity Platform presidential candidate, Robert Kyagulanyi, also known as Bobi Wine will continue for an unspecified period of time.
The army and police have since January,14th on election day surrounded Kyagulanyi’s home in Magere, Wakiso district and National Unity Platform offices in Kamwokya, blocking a number of people from accessing.
Addressing journalists yesterday, Police spokesperson, Fred Enanga confirmed the siege but noted it is meant to prevent any form of violence that might break out throughout the country.
Whereas there had been reports of Kyagulanyi, the runners up in last week’s presidential elections being put under house arrest, security denied the same but noted there is a controlled arrangement of visitors going in and out of the National Unity Platform principal’s home.
The development comes at a time when Kyagulanyi’s NUP is said to be gathering evidence to petition the Supreme Court challenging the declaration of NRM’s Yoweri Museveni as the winner of the January 14th, 2021 presidential elections.
