Public transport service providers have revealed plans to suspend operations ahead of Thursday’s general polls. The bus services have cited security concerns and looming tension that is gradually spiralling across members of the public.

Nelson Ssekandi, the Manager of Namayiba Bus Park told NBS Television earlier today in an interview that many companies have expressed intention to suspend operations citing anticipated violence. This is expected to affect the bus terminal’s operations by at least 60%.

Relatedly, several people have opted to flee the capital, Kampala in fear of the heavy military presence on the streets. The people say they are being haunted by the ugly scenes and memories of their colleagues who were gunned down during the November protests that left more than 54 people dead and dozens injured. “I have sent all my family to the village,” Mukiibi, a casual labourer in Nakulabye says. “I will also leave at least 2 days to the elections. I don’t want to be caught in the mayhem. I value my life and I pray for peace to prevail,” he adds.
