Go-Forward organisers in Iganga district have said that they are working secretly to build alliances with politicians in the area. Go-Forward is the organisation headed by 2016 presidential candidate Amama Mbabazi.
Charles Angiro Gutmoi, the former Erute North county MP and a member of the opposition Forum for Democratic Change party in Lira district has criticised the clan heads for politicising the cultural institution.
Hours before John Patrick Amama Mbabazi begins his presidential campaign in Masaka, the Go-Forward youth coordinator Meddie Kikomeko is nursing injuries after he was abducted and beaten up. Kikomekos white Nissian UAB 873 L was also burnt during the attack.
Ingrid Turinawe and Panga Gloria argue that Mbabazi was fraudulently nominated since he returned his nomination forms after the set deadline and that TDA members who received the forms didnt constitute quorum.
Amama Mbabazi, whose lawyer Severino Twinobusingye picked nomination forms at TDA on Wednesday evening, was expected to return them by Thursday afternoon, but instead insisted on his earlier request of extension of the deadline to 17th September.
