The Uganda Police Force on Tuesday warned presidential aspirants against mobilising their supporters to escort them for nominations slated for next week noting that they will be arrested and detained.

Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson Patrick Onyango noted that they had received credible information indicating that some candidates were mobilizing thousands of their supporters to escort them.
