The US Embassy in Kampala has issued a security alert for the second day of presidential nominations set to take place on Tuesday, November 3, ahead of presidential elections in 2021. Nominations are taking place at the Kyambogo University sports ground and are expected to commence from 08:00 (local time) on Tuesday and run for most of the day. Road closures are likely in the vicinity of the stadium, particularly around Kireka and Kyambogo. It is not clear whether associated demonstrations will take place on Tuesday, but they are to be anticipated throughout the day.

During the first day of the nomination process on Monday, November 2, gatherings were reported in the vicinity of the stadium; however, they remained seemingly peaceful and no clashes were reported.

A heightened police presence is expected at the stadium, with disruptions to transportation and business likely.


Those in Kampala are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate a heightened security presence, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
