Political and opinion leaders in Northern Uganda opposed to presidential hopeful Amama Mbabazi have stepped up efforts to demonize his candidacy, order and rallied locals there to shun his campaigns.

During the campaign launch at the Northern Uganda Media Club, medicine the leaders stressed that Mbabazi should be the last person to think about consulting and campaigning in Northern Uganda ahead of the 2016 elections, owing to the manner in which he reportedly mismanaged the region’s donor funded reconstruction programme while serving as Prime Minister.

The meeting was attended by former and current local leaders including Kilak County MP, Gilbert Olanya and former Nwoya Member of Parliament Simon Oyet, among others.

The group is planning to hold a peaceful march to Karuma, demanding for the refund of the billions of shillings misappropriated under the watch of Amama Mbabazi in the Office of the Prime Minister, which led to the temporary withdraw of foreign aid from a number of donors in 2013.

Odonga told the meeting today that Mbabazi must refund this money first, before he thinks of stepping a foot in the North to drum for support.

According to Mbabazi’s program for consulting his supporters released last week, he will be visiting a number of districts in the region, starting with Moroto in Karamoja sub-region on July 11 and Lira on July 13.

Otto had earlier warned that if Mbabazi insisted on going to Northern Uganda, the people there would have to carry the law in their hands.

He went ahead to call upon all locals in the region, not to vote Mbabazi or any other person that was implicated in the PRDP scandal.

Meanwhile in Gulu town, a group of youths reportedly took to the streets protesting against Mbabazi’s candidacy.
