According to Rugunda, Inspector General of Police, Kale Kayihura, got wind that the opposition were forming a small group to incite violence during the elections.

Their plan is "to disrupt social and economic activities as well as to paralyse governance", Rugunda said.

Rugunda was responding to recent remarks by Forum for Democratic Change presidential candidate, Kizza Besigye who said the elections will be won by "defiance and not compliance".

Beisgye recently launched a vote-protection coalition in order to protect his votes. However, this was seen as a move to incite violence by the ruling party.

Besigye recently lambasted President Yoweri Museveni for instigating violence against the opposition when the police were seen manhandling him on route to his rally in Rukungiri District.
