Patrick Oboi Amuriat, the presidential flag bearer for Forum for Democratic Change has escaped police custody to head back to Kitgum where President Museveni is also campaigning.
Amuriat’s campaign schedule collided with that of President Museveni. The two candidates were expected in Kitgum today, on the same day.
However, before entering Kitgum, Police blocked Amuriat and demanded he divert to another place . Police explained that Museveni will be in the same city. However, Patrick would not hear of it.
“Why divert me instead of Museveni yet we are both Presidential candidates?” he queried.
His defiance however prompted Police to arrest him.
However, on the way, Amuriat happened to be left alone by Police. He thus decided to grab the chance and head back to Kitgum, where President Museveni and his campaign team are also seeking the favor of Kitgum residents on the ballot come 2021.
We shall keep you posted.
