KEY KYAGULANYI CAMPAIGN OFFICIALS JAILED FOR CAMPAIGNING IN BARACKS
By Mulengera Reporters
On the orders of area police commander Boaz Katuzeyo, the Entebbe Airport territorial police has arrested four campaign agents for NUP Presidential Candidate Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu. The Tuesday morning arrests, according to Entebbe Division A Coordinator for NUP Achilles Kiwanuka, followed the four NUP officials’ decision to go on a door to door campaign mission which saw them stray into Old Entebbe Vet barracks enclosure which is also a renowned barracks for the military.
Katuzeyo says such was unacceptable campaigning conduct and the four arrested NUP campaign officials will have to be charged with criminal trespass because their entry into the restricted military facility wasn’t preceded with acquisition of express permission from the concerned authorities. Achilles Kiwanuka, who is also the NUP candidate for the Division A Mayoral seat, says such arrests are going to significantly affect the Kyagulanyi last minute campaign and vote protection preparations in the entire Entebbe Municipality.
In a related development, a Premio vehicle belonging to one of the ruling party candidates in Sembabule has this Tuesday morning knocked dead Saul Kalemera, the polling official the Electoral Commission had deployed to oversee the conduct of the Thursday elections for Nakagongo Parish in Sembabule. Kalemera was being carried on a motorcycle by his in-law Alex Sentongo as he rushed for EC work. They both died on spot and the men travelling in the killer vehicle plucked off the number plates and fled abandoning the vehicle at the very bloody accident scene.
