Sembabule Leaders Summoned for a Meeting with Museveni at State House

Published

on


Just a few days after violence was witnessed in NRM primary elections in Sembabule district that led to the cancellation of voting in some constituencies such as Mawogola North and Mawogola west, leaders from the district have been summoned to a meeting with President Museveni scheduled for Thursday.

According to the letter signed by Sembabule Resident District Commissioner (RDC), Nickson Kabuye, the summoned leaders include the district chairperson, the NRM district chairperson, all Members of Parliament, all aspirants for the position of Member of Parliament, all sub county chairpersons (LC IIIs), and all NRM sub county chairpersons.

“I have been directed to inform and invite you for a meeting with His Excellency the President of the Republic of Uganda. The meeting will take place on Thursday September 10, 2020, at State House Entebbe,” said the RDC in a letter.

Although the agenda of the meeting is not yet known, it should be noted that the NRM Electoral Commission chairman Dr Tanga Odoi cancelled voting in Mawogola North and Mawogola West constituencies in the recently concluded NRM primary elections over violence.

In Mawogola North, two of the contestants are both close to the first family.

Shartis Musherure, who happens to be the daughter of Foreign Affairs Minister Sam Kutesa and Godfrey Aine Kaguta who happens to be President Museveni’s younger brother are vying for the same position.

Kutesa was recently quoted saying that he has interest in the Mawogola North election because he is tied to both candidates.

“One of the contenders is my daughter (Shartis Musherure) while the other is my in-law (Godfrey Aine Kaguta),” Kutesa said recently.

In Mawogola West, one of the contenders Hanifah Kawooya was allegedly beaten by her political rivals’ supporters which prompted Tanga Odoi to cancel the election.

Muntu Blocked in Kamwenge

Published

Alliance for National Transformation presidential candidate Gen. Mugisha Muntu has been blocked from campaigning in Kamwenge according to a statement he released earlier today.Below is the full statement:

STATEMENT
Today in Kamwenge, as we have done since the start of the campaign season, we headed out to speak with the people. We had earlier in the week agreed on the venue with security agencies. No one had anticipated that it would rain as much as it did, making it impossible for us or the people to access.

After identifying an alternative place only 100m away from the original venue, negotiating with the owner and communicating the same to the public, we headed to the second venue only to be stopped by police.

Our policy has always been to do all we can to be reasonable, even in the face of unreasonable action on the part of the state. We engaged the police leadership in a civilized, respectable manner well knowing that they intended to not only frustrate us, but cause us to act in ways that would give them an excuse to cause chaos. This was on top of their intimidating the radio we had booked and duly paid to appear on.

While we are confident that we are on the right side of both the law and reason, we have chosen not to endanger the lives of our supporters or the general public by escalating the situation. We will do everything humanly possible to avoid a single life being lost or blood being shed on account of our campaign.

And yet this truth remains: the regime’s days are numbered.

However, sources further reveal that Byabashaija could have courted the second lady for protection given that he has amassed a lot of wealth and could be a subject of investigations.

Our sources reveal that Byabashaija who carries himself as Mr.I know it all hasn’t met Madam Enid alone but a host of others with connections to the centre of power in the country.
