Three Ugandan lawmakers and some of their supporters critical of President Yoweri Museveni were arrested after stones were thrown at Museveni’s convoy late on Monday in a town in the country’s northwest, a police spokesman said on Tuesday.

Emirian Kayima told a news conference that supporters of independent candidate Kasiano Wadri had obstructed and attacked Museveni’s convoy in Arua and that one of the vehicles in the convoy had its rear windscreen shattered.

“It is criminal to obstruct and attack the presidential motorcade,” he said.
