According to Bulambuli district police Commander Alfonzo Musoni, heavy deployment is done to protect candidates and crowds from being attacked by hooligans who are planning to destabilize and threatening security of other candidates in these last days.

“Heavy deployment of anti-riot police officers have come shortly after a group of youth from Go forward attempted to block Minister Muloni from proceeding with her final rallies.” Musoni said

He said, other candidates have also been given police officers according to the magnitude of threats and the demand.


“We have not recorded any incident of other candidates’ rallies being attacked apart from one incident in the camp of Wamakuyu Mudimi and Gerald in Elgon County where their supporters clashed last week.”

Musoni said  anti-riot, foot, motor patrol and plain cloth officers have been deployed across the identified hot stop trading centres to collect security information and deal with those who will be seen causing havoc.


Musoni warned independent candidates from ferrying hooligans from neighboring districts of  Sironko and Mbale to destabilize peace and security of  candidates and the people of Bulambuli.

“The worst thing is these groups have taken time to warn me also and I am saying that police is ready to receive them the way they will approach us. We are not threatening but they stand warned in the strongest terms,” Musoni said.


He said in case police fails to crush them they will not hesitate to ask for assistance from the army and other security forces to see peaceful election processes prevail.

David Waniala an elder in Bulambuli appealed to candidates to manage their supporters and learn to access the outcome of results, adding that Ugandans are not ready to see blood shade.


“We are just recovering from wounds of Karamojong rustlers and now again war because of leaders who do not want to respect the outcome of election results,” Waniala said.
