Security forces have sealed off the homes of Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu alias Bobi Wine the National Unity Platform (NUP) president and Dr. Besigye of Forum for Democratic ( FDC) ahead of Museveni’s swearing-in which is to take place on Wednesday, 12th, 2021 with the expected number of 4,042.
According to Robert Kyagulanyi, his home in Magere is currently surrounded off by the military, nearly 48 hours to the swearing-in of the newly elected President of Uganda at Kololo Ceremonial Grounds.
“My home is surrounded by the police and the military. Soldiers are back to the streets. This is how Museveni plans to swear himself in!” he posted on Facebook.
This post came a few minutes after the FDC reported that the home of Dr. Besigye in Kasangati had been grounded by security on Monday morning.
Addressing the press on Monday, 9th, 2021 Col Deo Akiiki the UPDF Deputy Spokesperson confirmed security presence at kyagulanyi’s home which he claimed was to offer him security.
“The deployment at Bobi Wine’s residence is for his good. We accord security based on the weight of a person. He is a distinguished Ugandan. His security can’t be as anybody else’s, But he was also invited. I saw the invitation,” Col Akiiki says.
Besides this, all the 2021 presidential candidates were invited to attend President Museveni’s swearing in ceremony scheduled for Wednesday this week.
