Detained Kagadi NUP Leaders Released on Police Bond

Kagadi-Three National Unity Platform-NUP party leaders in Kagadi district who were arrested on Monday evening are out on police bond. 

They are Jocias Tumukwasibwe, the Kagadi NUP Vice-Chairperson, Brian Asingwire, the Buyaga East Parliamentary candidate and LC V candidate, Anna Nasaka.

The trio was picked up for staging processions in Kagadi town council shortly after launching their campaigns at their party offices on Monday.

Speaking to our reporter shortly after their release, Tumukwasibwe accused police of confiscating their campaign materials including campaign posters and speakers during their arrest on Monday.
