Kyagulanyi vows to go back to Kalangala for campaigns

The National Unity Platform party presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has vowed to return to Kalangala despite the police and military blocking his campaigns last week.

Last week, Bobi and his campaign team were blocked by security forces in Kalangala and he was airlifted back to his home in Kampala while several of his arrest were detained in Kalangala and Masaka police cells.

While addressing the media on Tuesday morning at the party headquarters in Kamwokya, Kyagulanyi vowed to return to Kalangala on Friday and urged the Electoral Commission to be fair.

In the new revised schedule, Bobi Wine said he will resume his campaigns tomorrow (Wednesday) in Namisindwa district before proceeding to Namayingo on Thursday.

“They blocked us when we went to speak to the people in Kalangala on December 30, 2020 but we want to tell the people of Kalangala, that we are with you this Friday,” Kyagulanyi said.

“EC has declined to approve the venues we have given them for the districts where we are scheduled to hold campaigns. They want us to first sign an MoU yet these are not part of the redline districts,” Kyagulanyi said.
