Three people are nursing injuries at Bukedea Health Center IV after they were allegedly knocked by a supporter of a rival candidate.  The three who include James Okia, Agnes Adikinyi and Agnes Kokoi were on Wednesday travelling to St. Dennis Polling Station in Bukedea Town Council when they were knocked by Sam Muron.

Muron is an ardent supporter of Alfred Igune, the incumbent LCIII for Bukedea Town Council while the three are supporters of Sam Engole.

Igune lost to Engole in the NRM primaries and tensions have been high among their supporters.

It’s reported that Muron was attacked by supporters of Engole on Tuesday night at his home, which could have sparked revenge.

According to the police, Muron allegedly trailed the three since morning.

Edgar Kankwasa, the Bukedea District Police Commander says they have arrested Muron and is detained at Bukedea CPS. The police have also impounded, Primo UAT138A that was driven by Muron. 

However, Muron denied the allegations and accused Engole’s supporters of attacking him at his home in Kachabul. He also throws counter-accusations to the casualties whom he also claims to have been trailing him throughout the day but were unsuccessful.
