15 Sep 2020 · Paul Muweesi, the Bugere Parish NRM Youth Publicity Secretary, says besides reporting the matter to police, they also want the party leadership to reprimand Mubanda for procuring their torture.
Mathias Kasamba, the NRM’s Director for Mobilization argues that the majority of the petitions are largely a result of deliberate conduct of election officers who through collusion, abused their powers to mess-up the process, saying that the party must get rid of such characters if they are to have a clean exercise.
The angry voters said to be supporters of John Robert Esaru, one of the candidates for the Soroti East Division Mayoral NRM party ticket turned violent accusing his rival, Abdul Latif for ferrying voters to the polling station to vote in his favour.
Birimumaaso, who lost the race for the NRM Parliamentary candidate in Bukoto West argues that the party is seemingly condoning voter bribery and intimidation, violence and several vices that affect the integrity of the party’s internal processes.
“I am surprised to hear that I got 110 votes in my polling station. To be honest, in this house, I got only ten votes and the winner there had 101 votes. How come that I was added 100 votes and the winner more than 500 votes? Something is fishy in this election and the officials know what they did at the polling stations”, one of the candidates said.
