The National Unity Platform – NUP supporters have camped at the famous Nalufenya detention centre demanding for the release of their leader Robert Kyagulanyi, who has been under detention for more than 24 hours.
Kyagulanyi was arrested on Wednesday morning in Luuka district where he was scheduled to conduct a political rally. Kyagulanyi was expected to proceed to Buyende and Kamuli as his trail in Busoga nears an end.
Police have said that the arrest is intended to enforce the COVID19 SOPs majorly against crowds beyond 200 permitted by the ministry of health.
Upon his arrest, the youthful popstar cum politician was driven to the infamous Nalufenya prison where he remains detained up until now.
The arrest has however sparked off ugly protests in the Country’s capital. NUP supporters are demanding for Kyagulanyi’s unconditional release.
