KAMPALA, UGANDA: The National Unity Platofrm party secretary general, Mr David Lewis Rubongoya hasconfirmed that Nubian Li, Eddie Mutwe and other supporters who were in the diverted bus are being held at Makindye Military Barracks in Kampala.
“On the way to court, the bus in which they were travelling in was diverted to Kampala and now we’re told they are being deatined at Makindye Military Barracks,” he said.
On December 30, security agencies in a joint operation arrested 126 NUP supporters including Kyagulanyi’s drivers and private bodyguards. Some of those arrested were detained at Kalangala Police Station and on Tuesday they appeared before Kalangala Magistrate court and got bail.
During the arrest, the police confiscated Kyagulanyi’s official campaign car and three other cars in his convoy and they are currently parked at Kalangala Police Station.
Kyagulanyi has since protested the security crackdown on his close associates, saying it is intended to isolate him and disorganise his team ahead of the polls, but insists he is not shaken.
