Election Violence sponsored by the NRM in Ntungamo today!
There have been disruptions on the Go-Forward trail as I myself recently have reported. But today took the cake. The extensive payments of certain NRM men and also the way they started walking through town first plastering over the Go-Forward posters with NRM. Then later go into utter violence; that with help of the local RDC in Ntungamo.
In Ntungamo where Amama Mbabazi held a campaign rally; that place there reports of that the local RDC ordered men in Yellow shirts to crash the venue and let it become a hazard. There been also very simple resistance by the NRM where they have done the spiteful thing of replacing the Go-Forward posters with their own NRM. The youth and supporters of NRM have walked in the town all day securing the area.
About a certain car was this:
“Earlier this morning, a Land Cruiser Prado with number plates of State House drove Ms. Sarah Kagingo, A former state house employee, around Ntungamo town, distributing NRM campaign materials”.
On these actions by the NRM- Amama Mbabazi has stated this:
“I would like to urge the NRM to take it easy and know that there’s real competition and rise up to the challenge” (…)”I don’t mind NRM attending my rallies, but their provocation, comments and interruptions constitute a strong reason for what happened”.
Justine Mbabazi the local RDC must be so proud of his policing today. The UPF surely let the NRM-Supporters do their thing. Also the car of Sarah Kagingo driving around dropping of materials in the town; there is too much rotten activity and the NRM blatant moves that can’t be justified. In the morning there was reports of Dan Nabimanya was going to the boda-boda drivers in Kitwe spending money on them and also giving them t-shirts before the rallies.
The violence towards them and also pure nonsense shall be brought to question. And while the NRM supporters went into the crowds justifying their actions the police protected the men going in on the Go-Forward supporters. The way certain cars and police acts is just vile! If the Go-Forward or FDC did the same towards the Presidents rallies; anywhere in Uganda, they would be shipped to Luzira before the ink is dry on the court ruling or to a “safe house”. The things missing is black mambas and Personal Armored Carrier together with police chasing the supporters and people taking a part of rally for Amama Mbabazi.
I hope that the world get to see this and condemn it and destroy the happy trip of the President to Saudi Arabia. Because the way his supporters and his paid police did Ntungamo was unjustified. We all know that the President has issues with his former PM, but now it is hurting innocent people and only a few boda-boda drivers earned a few extra bucks and got free yellow t-shirts. That doing it during a opponents rally is just wrong. Hope that somebody else then me address it and release hurtful reports because this is madness. This had to happen after the Pope left the country back to Vatican. So now the gloves are off and hope this is not a start of what is to come. There was too much election violence before the 2011… Peace.
