Police Further Changes Kyagulanyi  Rally Venue in Mukono 


The Police have further changed the National Unity Platform (NUP) party President’s rally venue in Mukono for the second time.

The last minute change of venue communicated by the deputy Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire comes hours to Kyagulanyi’s Wednesday trail in Mukono.

Mukono Municipality Member of Parliament Betty Nambooze Bakireke, one of the organisers for Kyagulanyi’s Mukono district trail first communicated Mukono taxi park as the main rally venue.

During their harmonisation meeting on Tuesday, NUP officials together with Police agreed upon Njogezi playground, located in Mukono Central Division in Mukono Municipality near Nambooze’s home, however, later in the evening, Owoyesigyire released a statement highlighting a different venue.

Owoyesigyire said that the venue had been further changed from Njogezi to Ntaawo playground also in Mukono Central division.

He says the decision had been reached by the Kampala Metropolitan East Territorial Police and Mukono Police Station, following a resolution by the District Security Committee of Mukono.

“The rally, originally scheduled to take place at Njogeza Grounds, will now be held at Ntawo Playground in Mukono Municipality.

The leadership of the National Unity Platform has been duly informed of these changes. We apologize for any inconvenience caused and appreciate your understanding.

We look forward to working with the NUP team to ensure a smooth and successful rally,” reads part of Owoyesigyire’s statement.

Kyagulanyi is expected to traverse different parts of Mukono district tomorrow Wednesday May 29, 2024 mobilising for party support and launching a number of party projects including the party membership program.

NUP had slated Tuesday May 28, for Kyagulanyi’s visit to Mukono but due to Police’s intervention, they were made to change.

Police first intercepted Kyagulanyi’s mobilisation trail to Kamuli district and Pallisa claiming the party organisers had not adhered to security guidelines prior given to them. Some of the party leaders including the Leader of Opposition in Parliament (LOP) Joel Ssenyonyi on Monday held discussions with police bosses at the police headquarters and came to a common understanding.
