Businesses and Traffic in Mbarara Yesterday were paralyzed as Police engaged in running battles with FDC supporters.
Police led by the Rwizi region Field Force Unit commander Collins Kaganzi used tear gas and water cannons to disperse supporters who were following FDC leaders led by Kiiza Besigye, FDC president Patrick Amuriat Oboi and Rukungiri Municipality MP Roland Kaginda.
FDC had planned to hold a rally at Nyamityoobora Play ground in Nyamityoobora ward Kakoba division but according to Rwizi region police spokesperson Samson Kasasiira, the rally was not cleared by police.
Police had earlier in the day been heavily deployed in the town, which Kasasiira said was to avert any chaos.
