Dozens of vehicles destined to and from Moroto were held up for several hours as the police barricaded the Kotido-Moroto road at Naitakwae – some 3 kilometres to Moroto town.
Heavily armed police officers led by Moroto district police commander, Jude Nasucha barricaded the road a few meters from Naitakwae, where Kyagulanyi had just finished addressing a massive campaign rally to block him from accessing Moroto town where he had booked airtime on the radio for a talk show.
In futility, police fired teargas at the unrelenting youth who were chanting “Bobi, Bobi, Bobi”. A visibly emotional Kyagulanyi knelt atop of his car and bowed in appreciation of the seemingly surprising support from the area which has long been considered a ruling party stronghold.
