Police has shot two members of National Unity Platform (NUP) presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine’s team, The Tower Post reports.
The two, according to preliminary reports include renowned producer Dan Magic and Afande Kato one of his Police guards who heads the security details assigned to the candidate by the Electoral Commission.
The Police guard was shot in the head while producer Dan Magic was shot in the mouth.
Bobi Wine was campaigning in Kayunga District, Central Uganda but abandoned the campaign to chauffer his injured team members to the hospital.
He was supposed to hold a rally this morning in Kayunga, but police dispersed the huge crowds following him, and chaos ensued.
They were taken to Nazigo Health III centre for emergency treatment before being transferred to Kampala.
“We are not going to give up. We are going to Jinja from here. It is our right to campaign and I wonder why the Electoral Commission is quiet when they released a roadmap that we are following,” Bobi Wine said.
