Roch Marc Christian Kabore

Roch Marc Christian Kabore will serve another 5-year term as president of the West African nation of Burkina Faso, according to the election results.

President Kabore won 58% of the vote to remain as president of Burkina Faso, the National Independent Electoral Commission announced on Thursday.

Kabore, who became president of the west African nation in 2015, beat out 12 opponents in the first round, receiving 1.6 million out of 3 million votes cast.

The landslide victory removes the need for a runoff ballot, which his opponent were hoping for.

Many opposition figures decried the election as marred by bribery and irregularities, but independent commentators say the election was the most open for years. Because of unrest caused largely by jihadi insurgents from neighboring Mali, polling stations were unable to open in at least one fifth of the country.

The election took place on Sunday. Pro-Kabore candidates say that issues with polling stations affected all candidates equally.

Presidential Candidate Lt. Gen Henry Tumukunde has promised that once elected president, he will pay special attention to the issues and needs of the elderly and the people with disabilities in the West Nile region.

Tumukunde made these remarks today November 26, 2020, while addressing his supporters in Maracha, West Nile.

He stated that the NRM Government has lied to the people of Northern Uganda specifically West Nile, and the President Museveni, the NRM leader, has failed to deliver on his promises to the locals thus making the region lag behind in general development compared to other regions in the country.

“It’s the time, with no excuse, for the people of West Nile to say bye to Mr. Museveni after 35 years of leadership with total poor service delivery yet they are meant to eat on the national cake,” he said.

According to Tumukunde, Museveni’s years in power have been characterized with escalated cases of corruption involving losses of colossal sums of public funds.

“The country loss of USD 500 m annually through corruption, high risk institutions identified include police, judiciary, public procurement and disposal functions, public services, land administration, tax administration, national resources management and in the legislation,” Tumukunde noted.

“We shall start by solving youth problems, train them for self employment, improving the banking system and paying special attention to both the elderly and people with disabilities,” he said.

Today marks day two of Tumukunde’s campaigns in the West Nile region having been to Nebbi, Pakwach and Zombo yesterday.

Election Campaigns: FDC’s Patrick Amuriat Gets ‘Rude Welcome’ in Bunyoro

Published

After a streak of running battles with Police, Patrick Oboi Amuriat aka POA has yet again had a torrid time canvassing for votes in Bunyoro Region after he was pepper sprayed and two of his campaign meetings dispersed.

The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Presidential Candidate had been scheduled to traverse Kiryandongo and Masindi Districts on Wednesday November 25, 2020, according to the Electoral Commission (EC) Programme.

Amuriat started his day on a high, addressing mini rallies at Karuma and Diima trading centers (all in Kiryandongo) but  the situation got out of hand when a mammoth crowd of cheering supporters quickly formed a procession.

Sensing trouble, Police, commanded by Kiryandongo District Police Commander (DPC) Joseph Bakaleke, at first tried to deter the growing crowd from blocking the Gulu-Masindi high way but was overwhelmed.

Bakaleke and his squad tried to escort Amuriat to a venue they had organized away from the city center but all in vain. Instead, he (Amuriat) parked and started waving to crowds aloft his V8 vehicle, a move that triggered an altercation between the former and latter.

In the fracas, Amuriat was pepper sprayed by a yet to be identified officer but this only emboldened him.

“This dictatorship must fall and it is going to fall with this one (Bakaleke). You may want to tear gas us, pepper spray us or even kill us. We will never give up,” Amuriat ranted.

After being subdued, Amuriat drove to the periphery of the town where he addressed a minute rally before proceeding to Kiryandongo town.

In a similar fashion, he was swarmed by Party adherents who attempted to hold a procession but Police quickly dispersed them with tear gas and they took to their heels.

Upon realizing that he had been barred from meeting voters, Amuriat jumped out of his car purportedly to buy a chapatti but Police simply watched on and thereafter escorted him to the border with Masindi.

In Kijura town, Amuriat once again tested Police’s nerves by attempting to speak to residents but was interrupted by police officers who unsuccessfully tried to confiscate his mobile public address system.

A combined team of Military and Police thereafter fired live bullets to scare the infuriated supporters. He was later driven out of town under military guard.

According to reliable sources, Amuriat will today, Thursday officiate at the launch of his Presidential manifesto in Hoima City. It is not yet clear whether the Party’s founding President Rtd. Col Kizza Besigye will grace the function.
