One man who is yet to be identified was reportedly shot in the head and others suffered accidents as they scampered for their dear lives after police shot bullets and teargas to stop them from crowding around Bobi Wine, who was scheduled to hold a rally in the area.

While speaking to the media, Bobi Wine  called upon the Electoral Commission Chairperson Justice Simon Byabakama to either come out and condemn what is going on or resign from his office, instead of turning a blind eye and deaf ear to the suffering of innocent Ugandans.
