Kabateraine told Chimpreports that he and his team had done good work in soliciting support for Amama Mbabazi and that it was yesterday that they intended to meet some of these supporters.

He says he was immediately summoned and questioned by the Parish Internal Security Officer (PISO) Mr. Emmanuel Baranta who threatened to arrest him if he proceeded with the meeting.

“I decided to call the Mayor Mr Safari Mugyenyi, but he also warned me against holding this meeting,” he added.

Kabateraine who claims to have lived with several of such threats over the past months, says his name was even deleted from the voters’ register in Kanyaryeru.

When contacted by our reporter, the Mayor Safari Mugyenyi denied the accusations, saying he blocked no one from holding any meetings.

He stressed that Uganda is a democratic state and anyone is free to support or meet his/her own candidate.

“I think he (Kabatereine) might have failed to mobilize his supporters and started accusing us,” Safari said
