One person, a security team member of National Unity Platform, NUP Presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi has died after he was allegedly run over by a military truck.
According to Kyagulanyi Mr Francis Kalibala alias Frank’s met his death at Busega where security had blocked them on their way to Rubaga hospital, where they were rushing Ashraf Kasirye, the Ghetto media journalist that had been injured earlier in Masaka.
Kyagulanyi announced Francis dead on Facebook, explaining that he was also rushed to Rubaga following the incident at Busega.
“I regret to announce the death of our security team member Mr Francis Kalibala also known as Frank. Francis was run over by a military police patrol truck Number H4DF 2382 which had blocked us in Busega as we were taking comrade Kasirye Ashraf for emergency medical attention in Rubaga hospital. Francis passed away a few minutes ago at Rubaga hospital. May your life never perish in vain brother. Rest in peace.
A very sad day!” Kyagulanyi said.
More than 50 people have died in Kyagulanyi’s camp since Presidential campaigns kicked off. Many of them died during the November 18th protests in Kampala, while others have allegedly been knocked dead and shot at during campaign meetings.
The police say they are enforcing COVID-19 and electoral Guidelines issued at the start of the campaigns. According to the guidelines, candidates are supposed to meet not more than 200 people at each campaign meeting, no processions or rallies are allowed and they all must follow SOPs.
