After the arrest of singer Bobi Wine under unclear circumstances by Uganda Police, the ruling political party NRM has also come out to inform the general public how its candidate has been arrested like Bobi Wine.
In a statement issued by Rogers Mulindwa, NRM Communications Officer, the party claims that its candidate for Kyadondo East Parliamentary seat Sitenda Sebalu was arrested by police today afternoon under unclear circumstances.
“NRM wishes to inform its supporters in Kyadondo East Constituency and the public at large that its Candidate Hon Sitenda Sebalu has this Tuesday afternoon been arrested by police on unclear circumstances,” Statement partly reads
According to Mulindwa, Sebalu was arrested together with the district NRM chairperson Hajji Abdu Kiyimba from Wampeewo playground, a second venue for today’s rallies.
“Police could not tell the motive behind this act but the party continues to seek a clear explanation. The venue was also later invaded by the FDC supporters rendering it impossible for our rally to take place,” Mulindwa stated.
“As an exemplary political party, we have therefore taken a decision to shift our rally to Sir Appolo Kaggwa Church of Uganda in order to avoid causing nasty scenes.We call upon our party members to remain calm and focus on the victory within our sight,” he added.
