Also, no person will be allowed to loiter in the vicinity of nomination venue except candidates and their entourage of not more than 10 people.

According to Norman Musinga, the Kampala Metropolitan traffic police commander, area residents within the nomination venue will have to stay home till evening while some roads will be closed and traffic diverted.

"Motorists will be diverted at Spear Motors (IOV), Banda trading centre, Kireka trading centre, Kigobe road at National Council of Higher Education and Jokas hotel," Musinga said.

Police said other motorists heading to Jinja from Kampala will go through Old Port Bell road, Spring road via Kireka road to Kinawataka and join the Kampala-Jinja Highway from Bweyogerere trading centre.

"Kyambogo cricket ground [presidential nomination centre] will only be accessible to presidential aspirants, their recommended number of people accredited by Electoral Commission and Electoral Commission officials," Musinga said.

The accredited VIPs will access the nomination centre through Kyambogo road, Kyambogo University Western gate and park as will be directed by traffic police.

Access to Kyambogo University will be restricted to only accredited persons and tere will be no access to other motorists intending to use the Kampala–Jinja highway between Spear Motors and Kireka trading centre except members of Electoral Commission, presidential aspirants, service vehicles, emergency vehicles and security vehicles (fire brigade, ambulances and medical team). 

"The aspirants will exit through Kyambogo University, faculty of engineering and join Kigobe road at National Council of Higher Education. Heavy trucks will not be allowed along Kampala-Jinja highway," police said.

Those travelling from eastern Uganda will be diverted from Namboole roundabout to the Northern bypass while those from western Uganda will be diverted at Busega roundabout through the Northern bypass to Kalerwe roundabout-Gayaza and follow the same route to Jinja.

All junctions that join Kampala–Jinja highway between Spear Motors (IOV) and Kireka trading centre will be cut off; therefore no vehicle shall access the Highway.

Why are Ugandans just watching, helping Museveni finally own every tribal land officially legally & constitutionally?

After this fake election that appears to be the final one & already won by Museveni, all he will have to do is DISSOLVE posts of tribal leaders, then make Uganda the country he so longed/dreamed to own!

Who will fight or balme him as it's Ugandans themselves, owners of tribal lands, handing over their country to him?

You have made the situation clear;

*Uganda belongs to Museveni who doesn't need Ugandans around, yet our people are the last to see it & are helping him finally own their country for good!

Why are Ugandans letting & helping Museveni own the country fomed by their tribal lands & this, by letting him do is so peacefully through the divisive tribalistic system that dismpweres Ugandans completely?

Not even tribal leaders see their days are NUMBERED, as Museveni concludes conquest of territory!

It's loud & clear;

the area residents have no use for Museveni/nrm, yet they will go fake the election to officialise, legalise, constitutionalise the demo who doesn't need them!

So,

Those migrants from Western & Eastern Uganda travelling on Museveni's territory should be careful & not disorganise him preparing for the final parliamentary & presidential elections that will ensure his ownership to UGANDA!

Ugandans are the ones handing over their territory to Museveni, right?

Why will Museveni still need tribal leaders in posts after this final fake elections, when he can just REFORM the Republic & just rule, like a real man who can still erect?

The situation is clear;

This is a lock down that only the owner of Uganda can put in place, knowing Ugandans will remain silent, just watch, while those in posts help him own their country for good!

Museveni has become more demoniac than Idi Amin, yet Ugandans don't see it, but just help him own their country!

Ah! Acholi must be praying Museveni finalises conquest, then hand over Amuruland to China!

EC should have carried out the nominations at kololo airstrip to avoid inconveniencing the people of Kyambogo & Kireka & other Jinja road users of

Will govt compensate the residents of Kireka & Kyambogo for the lost income of the two-day forced & illegal home detention ?

Some of the residents live hand-to-mouth, will govt provide them food for three days as disrupts their lives ?

The EC/ govt officials govt seem oblivious to the harm their decisions do to the ordinary-man.

Hopeful the voters resident in Kireka & Kyambogo plus other inconvenienced road users of Jinja road have an opportunity to seriously punish NRM govt come 2021.

Will Museven go there with 10 people, we need quality.

The electoral commission refused to give his academic paper yet they were quick to give out papers of those of the other contestants, now which papers are you nominating him with, those he has been using before tuning in to new names or the new qualifications with the new names? Just asking...
