Bamutazi warned the opposition members and supporters that no one will be gven a chance to stand in the way for President Museveni’s victory come February 2021.
The Kanyamas led by Lwanga Charles popularly known as Master Lee said the group will help police and other security forces to counter any election violence by the opposition
The group will be operating in areas like Kampala, Mukono and Wakiso districts.
