There have been mixed reactions from a section of senior citizens who questioned the heavy deployment in Kampala as the country heads into elections.

The heavy deployment in major areas in Kampala has prompted many to go upcountry, where they will cast their vote.

According to Allan Ssewanyana, the Executive Director of Foundation for Human Rights initiative, the heavy deployment is uncalled for and needs to be tamed.

“You hardly feel the excitement and that the choice you make will make can impact. All I see is fear and the question of who is in charge of the election.” he said during an interview on NBS  Morning Breeze.

“The notion of change or no change stands out in this Election, the security think anyone with divergent views needss thorough treatment. There hasn’t been serious attention to the needs of the ordinary citizens. ” he added.

Commenting on the recent ban on social media, Allan is confident that the move was un-necessary and completely in opposition fo the fundamental human rights of the people.
