Dr. Tanga Odoi, the National Resistance Movement-NRM Party Electoral Commission Chairperson has cautioned members of the Hoima District NRM Executive Committee against campaigning in the ongoing party primaries for the woman parliamentary candidate.

 

He told the DEC members at Kitara secondary school in Kahoora division Hoima Municipality over the weekend that any DEC member who participates in the party primary campaigns contravenes the party constitution.

 

 

Odoi explained that he had received vital information indicating that some DEC members in Hoima were campaigning for some candidates in the woman MP primaries, which he said must stop immediately because it goes against the party constitution.

 

 

He asked the DEC members to wait for the completion of the party primaries and support whoever will emerge the party candidate.

Cue out:…is purely joint."//.

He also warned the candidates and their supporters against any violence during the campaigns and election period in the district. He says the NRM party together with the police will jointly monitor the campaigns and apprehend whoever will engage in campaign violence.

 

  

Odoi disclosed that the candidates will carry out joint campaigns beginning running from this Monday until August 13, 2018. He says the NRM primary elections for both Hoima Moman MP and Kikube LC 5 seats will be held between August 14 and 15.

Cue out:…are kicked out."//.

The Hoima woman MP seat fell vacant after the incumbent Kaahwa Byagira decided to relocate to the newly created Kikube district. Kikube became operational on July 1 this year.

The vacant seat has attracted eight candidates vying for the NRM ticket. They include Mary Grace Mugasa, Asha Kabaramagi, Naume Kojo, Harriet Businge and Plan Benedetta.

 

 

Police has also warned all candidates and their supporters against any electoral violence during their campaign and election period.

Julius Hakiza, the Albertine Region Police Spokesperson told Uganda Radio Network that police will not allow any person to cause chaos during the NRM party primaries.
