Heavy deployment along Gayaza Road, Kasangati and Magere village which is home of National Union Platform leader Robert Kyagulanyi has caused concern among some residents.
The deployment by military, police and plain clothes security personnel is noticeably heavy, with some residents describing the plainclothes security personnel as strangers whose origin they do not know.
Mr. William Kigozi, Chairman LC I of Magere village, claims he doesn’t know what the “strangers” are up to as Mr. John Mukiibi, a resident of Kasangati town council criticizes the deployment as a sign of cowardice and being in favor of the ruling NRM party.
