In an interview, the Kabarole District Police Commander, Geoffrey Kahebwa, told Chimpreports that the police have allowed the opposition to carry out their activities peacefully.


Kahebwa disclosed that there was no need for deployment ahead of the event.


“The opposition approached us seeking for permission and it was granted. They will be carrying out a public debate on electoral reforms at Kagote SDA Hall in West division Fort Portal municipality both in the morning and in the afternoon. They will address a public rally at Boma grounds.”


DPC Kahebwa said that as police, they will just be watching keenly whatever will be taking place.


According to Rusoke Nyakato, the Deputy Women’s League FDC, “The public debate and the rally are meant to inform the people about the electoral reforms and prepare them for the 2016 general elections. The civil society organisations, leaders and other members were mobilised for these two events”.


Meanwhile, the Member of Parliament for Fort Portal Municipality, Hon. Alex Ruhunda, has strongly condemned the manner in which the opposition and civil society organisations in the region tarnished his reputation by using his name on their invitation letters.


Ruhunda said civil society organisations claimed he was the chief organizer and planner of the workshop on “electoral reforms” which is not the case.


In the letter, they also included names of political contact persons whom he said he had no association with as the General Secretary of the NRM Kabarole district.
