The Luweero District Kadhi has asked the Uganda Police Force and other security agencies to be impartial to all aspiring candidates while enforcing the guidelines on COVID 19.

Last month, the Electoral Commission (EC) announced a ban on open-air campaigns, in the wake of coronavirus disease.  Political aspirants were asked to utilize virtual platforms to reach their constituents.

Police have also several times blocked opposition aspirants from holding meetings as they enforce the covid-19 directives. Pictures and video clips have emerged on social media as aspirants for National Resistance Movement party tickets engage in large meetings with no Police interference.

Celebrating Eid-ul-Adha at Kasana mosque in Luweero town, Sheikh Ramadhan Mulindwa Nsanja the Luweero District Kadhi asked the Police not to selectively apply the directives.

Mulindwa also asked the aspirants to pursue campaigns based on the interests of the people rather than promoting disunity and hatred among the voters.

Kadhi Mulindwa also handed over 1,000 heads of cattle donated to County Sheikhs to mark Eid-ul-Adha. The heads of cattle were donated by Ittifak Federation and Lilah Caring Charity Uganda among others to Muslims in Luweero.

County Sheikhs in Luweero also called for peaceful campaigns and elections.

Sheikh Zaid Nyanzi for Zirobwe County asked aspirants to promote unity and respect the COVID- 19 Standard Operating Procedures to avoid the spread of the pandemic.

Sheikh Abdulatif Walakira for Kikyusa County prayed for tolerance among voters and asked them to listen to all aspirants before they decide on whom to elect.

Suleiman Mwanje a faithful at Kasana mosque described the Kadhi and County Sheikhs messages timely as campaigns heat up. 

Mwanje says that Police is selectively enforcing guidelines to only opposition aspirants and leaving out NRM aspirants.
