The National Resistance Movement (NRM) electoral commission led by Dr. Tanga Odoi have for the second time postponed the Primary elections in Mawogola North and Mawogola West constituencies in Ssembabule district.
Earlier Dr.Tanga Odoi had declared that elections had been scheduled for Monday September 28, however by shock, the Party’s Secretary General, Justine Kasule Lumumba informed the media on Sunday that the polls have been moved again to Wednesday, September 30.
“It has been moved to ensure electoral officials, security and candidates meet to agree on a number of things before the elections,” Lumumba said.
“The meeting will enable stakeholders agree on how to carry out a peaceful election. The candidates will get dos and don’ts that need to be followed.”
She further warned that “Nobody should misbehave. If you misbehave, we shall disqualify you. We are trying all possible means to ensure the elections happen peacefully. We need to keep the NRM spirit alive in the political arena of country,” furious Lumumba warned.
The party electoral commission postponed the polls in the Mawogola West after allegations that the incumbent MP Joseph Ssekabiito ordered his supporters to beat up his contestant Hon. Anifa Kawooya.
In Mawogola North, the contest is between Godfrey Aine Kaguta and Shartis Kutesa Musherure both close to the First family but polls were postponed after incidents of violence in the area.
