The Electoral Commission have come out and clarified on the confusion that broke out this morning in the campaign programs of two candidates in the Kyadondo By-election.

The commission blamed one of the candidates Robert Kyagulanyi (Bobi Wine) for being at the wrong venue, which caused his arrest and detention by police.

Bobi Wine was picked up by police at the Kasangati Playground and detained briefly at the Kasangati Police station before being moved to Kiira Police.

The EC Spokesperson Jotham Taremwa in a brief statement following the arrest, said the Kasangati venue today belonged to the NRM candidate Sitenda Sebalu.

Mr Sebalu is today expected to be joined by President Yoweri Museveni who is also the ruling party chairman on the campaign.

“According to the harmonized campaign program with EC, Bobi Wine was not supposed to be where he was in Kasangati,” said Mr Taremwa.

“He is supposed to campaign in Gayaza. Therefore, he was campaigning at a wrong venue.”

Mr Taremwa says following the arrest, the commission managed to get in touch with the independent candidate who realized his mistake.

“…He appreciated our advice. He is going to proceed to his campaign venue,” added Taremwa.
