Police Warns NUP Against Procession to Welcome Bobi Wine, Supporters Arrested

In a concerning development that points to escalating tensions, National Unity Platform (NUP) supporters in Abayita Ababiri, Katabi town council, found themselves in police custody today. They were detained while passionately displaying posters and placards, rallying fellow supporters for the impending return of NUP President, Robert Kyagulanyi.

The arrested individuals, identified as Kasirye Gerald, Babirye Amina, Katabazi Jimmy, Eng. Kakooza Frank, Mugerwa Emmanuel Sali, and Nabatta Joyce Namuli, were reportedly peacefully engaged in efforts to mobilize fellow supporters for the eagerly awaited homecoming of their leader.

Kijambu Ronald Emmanuel, Counselor-Kawuku, Katabi town council, who managed to avoid arrest, boldly declared, “However much we are getting arrested, we shall still make sure tomorrow we storm the airport to welcome our President.”

In response, the police issued a stern warning to all political activists organizing supporters for President Kyagulanyi’s welcome. Joint security agencies have received intelligence suggesting that some NUP supporters intend to arrange processions from Entebbe airport to Magere in Kasangati, a move deemed illegal.

Speaking at a press conference at CPS Kampala, Police spokesperson of Kampala Metropolitan, Patrick Onyango, firmly stated, “We will effectively deploy to ensure that no person makes a procession.” He urged the public, motorists, and politicians to continue their daily activities, cautioning that those participating in processions would face arrests and legal consequences.

The heightened tension coincides with Robert Kyagulanyi’s imminent return from South Africa and Canada, scheduled for tomorrow. His arrival is poised to be a pivotal moment in Ugandan politics, as NUP supporters remain undeterred despite the recent arrests.

The situation is rapidly evolving, and observers are closely monitoring for further developments. The upcoming days will undoubtedly be significant for Ugandan politics, with the return of Bobi Wine drawing considerable attention both nationally and internationally.
