The EC: Appointment of Date for Polling Constituencies where Elections were Suspended (23.02.2016)
I write what I like.
Today is the first day after the live TV debate and the campaign trail continues. Even if Mzee does his business as usual; the FDC campaign convoy trvels to Namayingo and Bugiri to follow-up on the performance of yesterday. Take look! And by the way have some governance issues from the district. And not on the gold-rush of Namayingo; that should get a separate piece.
Message from Team Kizza Besigye 2016:
“Namayingo district has emphatically welcomed Dr Besigye, congratulating him on his good performance during the presidential debate. We are winning. #WesigeBesigye”.
At one town where Dr. Kizza Besigye and FDC campaign convoy was supposed to pass by the Namayemba village in Bugiri district. The villagers cleans the road for the coming FDC convoy.
Dr. Kizza Besigye message after the rallies today:
“Thank you Namayingo and Bugiri for the massive support. #VoteBesigye on 18th February and all FDC flag bearers. #WesigeBesigye”
Good Governance in the Namayingo:
Police for in the district:
“The police disciplinary court has found three top police officers in Namayingo District guilty of negligence of duty and recommended their dismissal from the Force” (91.2 Crooze FM, 14.02.2015).
Voter’s reacts in the districts:
“Voters in Namayingo district are up in arms against the arrest of Stephen Dede, the Bukhooli South legislator and Namayingo town council LC 3 chairman Dan Wanyama for their alleged connection to the Busoga murders” (Radiocity 97FM, 09.03.2015).
Little payment to locals for roadwork:
“Casual workers mainly locals from the eastern districts of Namayingo, Jinja, Mayuge, Busia are decrying the very little pay they are subjected to by the Chinese company constructing the road from Musita to Majanji. Reporting to the works and transport minister this problem today, the Namayingo RDC revealed that a casual worker at the road construction site is paid UGX.3000 per day something the residents and their leaders are strongly complaining about” (Radio Buddu 98.8 and 95.5, 24.04.2016).
Health situation in the district:
“Namayingo District had the highest HIV prevalence at 10 per cent, while Kaliro and Buyende districts had the lowest prevalence at 0.2 per cent and 0.1 per cent respectively. This implies that for Namayingo District, 100 out of every 1,000 adults are infected; while for Kaliro and Buyende districts it is two and one out of every 1,000 adults respectively. This information to the public means that there are many infected people in Namayingo, while there are almost no infections in Kaliro and Buyende!” (Health and Care Foundation Uganda, 12.06.2015).
“Mounting the first-ever transformer in Namayingo District” This happened apparently on the 23 July 2015, take a look:
Think that should open your mind a little for now. Peace.
