Baluku, who is also eyeing the Kasese Municipality parliamentary seat, was arrested together with Walid Mako as they were planning to launch the NUP offices in Nyakasanga Division in Kasese Municipality on Tuesday afternoon.
Also arrested were four local journalists who have since released. Innocent Kiiza, one of the People Power coordinators in Kasese, says the group was arrested as they were in the process of unveiling their offices to the media.
“We are still at police to get information why the two were arrested," Kiiza said.
This isn’t the first time NUP members are being stopped from launching their party offices. On Sunday, police blocked NUP coordinators in Kitgum from launching their offices on grounds that they were never notified.
