Addressing a news conference at the Central Police Station in Kampala, the police spokesperson Emilian Kayima said they will deploy officers at all centers, urging participants to comply with the orders.

He also reveals that they have information about some groups planning to intimidate voters, warning that they risk being arrested and prosecuted.
