There is heightened police presence in Kamwokya, a Kampala city suburb to stop the anticipated protests by People Power supporters following the arrest of the Kyadondo East MP, Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine on Monday.      

Police intercepted Kyagulanyi alongside several other legislators at Kasangati on their way for the launch of his presidential consultative meetings for alleged failure to comply with the Public Order Management Act-POMA and some requirements set by the police force.

The politicians were locked up at Kasangati police Station before they were later transferred to Nagalama police station where they spent the entire day and were released late in the night. Police quickly deployed in Kamwokya, which is home to Kyagulanyi’s Fire Base studio to prevent protests. 

Residents have told URN that the deployment started immediately after the arrest of Kasangati, adding police patrolled all roads and inside Kamwokya Gheetos for the entire Monday night. They decried the heavy police presence, saying he deployment scares away their customers.
