Kyandodo East Member of Parliament, Mr Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine and Mityana Municipality counterpart, Mr Francis Zaake received with a warm welcome in Butema Trading Centre, Hoima District.
UPDF soldiers and riot police under command of Mr Christopher Katumba, Hoima District Police Commander on Monday, blocked Bobi Wine’s convoy from accessing the town centre.
Despite the tight security, Bobi Wine and Zaake were able to meet up with Ms Asinansi Kamanda Nyakato, the Forum for Democratic Change candidate who launched her campaign for the Hoima woman parliamentary seat.
He urged the people of Bunyoro to vote Nyakato as a voice of Bunyoro not as a member of Forum for Democratic Change(FDC).
Bobi wine said that people of Bunyoro are facing a lot of challenges ranging from massive land evictions, unemployment, oppressive taxes, a broken healthcare and education system that need immediate action.
Police from neighboring districts of Kagadi, Masindi and Kiryandongo joined Katumba at Hoima Central Police Station to tighten security.
She is standing with Ms Harriet Businge Mugenyi from National Resistance Movement party.
The elections will take place on September 26.
