At Kyaggwe road, their convoy was blocked from proceeding to Kisekka Market thus making a u-turn towards Bombo Road and then Wandegeya.

At Wandegeya roundabout, Police ordered Lukwago’s driver to take Makerere University road.

Attempts to slope down along Gadaffi Road were resisted by Police thus leading Lukwago to Nakulabye and then Wakaligga.

However, at Lungujja, a cop fired teargas to disperse the protesters who ended up chasing him until he fled to a police post.

Unlike in previous incidences, Police exercised maximum restraint, allowing Lukwago to move with his supporters in a huge procession.
