The candidates in the race are Solomon Osiya (Independent), John Robert Ekongot (Independent), Stephen Ariko (Independent), Koluo Joseph Andrew (NRM), Omedo Odaka Martine (FDC), Imalingat Patrick (Independent) and Andrew Omiat (UPC).

The President’s first rally is expected to be a little hectic as some locals have been heard threatening to accost him directly on the ownership of the contested Angisa land.

Museveni will have his last rally at Atoroma Primary School in Toroma Sub County.

On the other hand, FDC’s Mugisha Muntu is expected to address rallies starting from Magoro Sub County before heading to Omodoi, Kapujan and conclude with Toroma Sub County.
