Earlier Sunday, police intercepted Besigye from proceeding to Soroti to campaign for Moses Attan.  ‘’Today, it is a beautiful day in Soroti East, our campaign trail will be joined by our founding President Besigye who will campaign for our candidate Hon. Moses Attan Okia, and also use this this by-election platform to awaken the people of the Teso region,’’ FDC Tweeted.
