Mob Attacks Home of Luuka South MP Candidate

Kisa says that shortly after the NRM primaries were suspended this morning, Mugogos supporters threatened to attack him for masterminding the postponement of the polls allegedly to sway voters to his side.
Unidentified thugs have raided the home of Steven Kisa, an aspirant for the Luuka South NRM parliamentary ticket. Kisa says the thugs raided his home at Buwamu village near Kiyunga town council in Luuka District this morning armed with sticks and stones.

 

 

They vandalised his window panes and doors. Kisa suspects his rival Taka Mugogo is behind the raid on his home.  He claims that on Sunday evening Mugogo called him accusing of bribing voters ahead of the primary elections.

 

Kisa says that shortly after the NRM primaries were suspended this morning, Mugogo's supporters threatened to attack him for masterminding the postponement of the polls allegedly to sway voters to his side.

 

Mugogo couldn\'t be reached to comment on the accusations leveled against him by his rival. But his campaign planner John Kanyali has denied the accusations against his boss. He instead blames Kisa for staging managing the attack on his home to discredit Mugogo ahead of the primary elections tomorrow.

Samuel Odong, the Luuka District Police Commander says they have picked up one suspect in connection to the attack while 7 others are on the run. According to Odong, they have also summoned Mugogo to record a statement on the incident. 

Kisa has currently relocated his home to Namulesa in Jinja district. The Luuka South NRM primary elections have attracted three candidates Steven Kisa, Taka Mugogo and Dan Kibira.
