The National Unity Platform supporters are gathering at the Nalufenya gate where their Presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi is being held.
Kyagulanyi was arrested yesterday in Luuka district where he was slated to hold his campaigns. His arrest led to an outbreak of protests across different parts of the country and the death of three people with more alleged numbers.
Kyagulanyi was reportedly arrested for defying the Electoral Commission guidelines. Opposition presidential candidates like Alliance for Transformation President Gen. Mugisha Muntu, Tumukunde, Forum for Democratic Change Amuriat who was also arrested and released have halted their campaigns until Kyagulanyi is set free.
Kyagulanyi’s lawyers and top NUP party leaders arrived at Nalufenya earlier on today morning but but have since been denied to have access to him.
