Police have intercepted a bus ferrying suspected unscrupulous people, officials said Thursday.
According to Kampala Metropolitan Police commander Frank Mwesigwa, the bus was cuff off by security forces in Lutete.
“The bus had people we suspected of causing violence and on stopping it, all occupants run away including the driver,” said Mwesigwa.
Intelligence teams are searching for the suspects hiding in the area.
Traffic police have now stationed along Gayaza road checking suspected vehicles including lorries.
This comes at a time of heightened tension as voters determine their next MP in the headed Kyadondo election.
Mwesigwa earlier said they obtained information showing that some wrong elements intended to disrupt the election exercise.
Police spokesperson Asan Kasingye reassured the force “shall ensure law and order in all the 93 polling stations in the constituency.”
He said the “constituency has been zoned into nine sectors to ease our operations” and each of these sectors will be commanded by an officer of the rank of ASP and above.
These officers will be supported by specialized units and other security agencies.
“We shall ensure motorized and foot patrols, before, during and after the elections.”
