While the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Campaign convoy went to Nakaseke district for continuation of the campaign rallies towards the General Election in 18th February 2016. Dr. Kizza Besigye have been scheduled for travelling the district and campaigning. That is expected by now, since he has tirelessly since November like any Presidential Candidate has done.
What that happen today we’re not really news. The Police we’re following the campaign trail of FDC convoy in the district. The thing that is bothering and sad is to see the operational factor of having police ferrying the so called crime-preventers from village to village, and town to town to get people to shun the campaign rallies of the FDC. They did what they could to intimidate the public from showing up at the rallies there.
Also a deflector from Go-Forward Hon. Amama Mbabazi had the support earlier last year from Nakaseke Democratic Party MP Candidate William Kasibante. He stood on stage and publicly now deflected to support Dr. Kizza Besigye.
While the Police we’re driving with Crime Preventers to stop the public from going. This shows the orders from up-high since the districts police is interfering in yet another opposition rally. The DPC Justus Asiimwe can’t be happy with his men’s work since it was not working well. Since the people and public did show up to the rallies even with the mobilization of Police and Crime Preventers did not stop the crowds or local citizens to show up. That means the security forces did not secure the public, instead making the issues being interfering directly into politics and party affiliation as the matter of not doing the same when NRM and Mzee came to the district. This shows loyalty towards him and partiality in a way that should not be happening at this time of Electoral Commission and their Election Road Map of 2016.
So there you have it! That should be enough. Peace.
