Uganda Police has revealed that National Unity Platform (NUP) President, Hon. Kyagulanyi Robert was successfully escorted by state security from Entebbe to his home in Magere.
Police says the opposition leader reached his home around 11.20am, and is with his family and friends.
”Disregard rumors of his arrest by propagandists. Meanwhile, business activities and movements along Entebbe road, within Kampala and Gayaza, are flowing smoothly.”
Earlier today, high anticipation and tension filled the air at Entebbe International Airport as supporters of Bobi welcomed him from mobilisation tours in South Africa and Canada.
However, their joy was cut short when reports emerged that he was apprehended by unknown individuals immediately after alighting from the plane.
Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson Patrick Onyango on Wednesday said they had learnt that a group of NUP supporters were planning to conduct a procession starting from Entebbe International Airport and proceeding through several areas, including Kitoro, Katabi, Kitala, Kitende, Kajjansi, Lubowa, the Central Business District (CBD), Kalerwe, and finally up to Magere, Kasangati.
”Such a procession has the potential to disrupt the normal flow of traffic, the movement of individuals, and the operations of businesses along the Entebbe – Gayaza highway. It may also attract criminal activities, posing risks to bystanders, motorists, passengers, and businesses through acts of theft or other criminal activities,” said Onyango adding;
”Therefore, we urge the organizers to cancel their planned procession. In future, we encourage organizers to coordinate and seek the necessary approvals from the Police to ensure the safety and security of all participants and the general public.”
