Safety wanting

Busoga region remains one with the biggest population watching the rallies and the organisers need to improve on their planning.

There was no alternative route, in case of the eventuality, the competitors would go the other route.

The safety marshals deployed were not enough at all. Two or three safety Marshals at a viewing point are totally not enough to control the crowd.
