The Electoral Commission (EC) has cautioned against unauthorized use of the Commission’s name and logo by the public and other electoral stakeholders, no rx website http://damadetrefla.com/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/includes/contact-form-functions.php which is likely to portray the body as partial and affect the management of the electoral process.
The caution is in reiteration of the recent public concern about images being circulated of a truck bearing the EC logo decorated with supporters and posters of President Museveni, http://chasingjamesbeard.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/infinite-scroll.php who’s one of the candidates vying for the top seat in the 2016 general elections.
Coincidentally, http://cro.vimspectrum.ro/components/com_k2/sef_ext/com_k2.php this misrepresentation of the EC comes at a time when the electoral body is under immense pressure from the public to demonstrate fairness and equality for all aspiring candidates if a credible election is to be undertaken.
According to a statement released by the EC Chairman Eng. Dr. Badru Kiggundu on Friday, he said that the truck M/V Registration number UAK 510E belongs to M/s Eclipse Marketing a company owned by Dr. Mitch Egwang who rented it out to Strategic Friends International.
Strategic Friends International was contracted by the EC to conduct voter education in northern Uganda.
Eng. Kiggundu said that the truck was branded with Electoral Commission messages for purposes of launching road shows/breezes in various parts of Northern Uganda.
“After the launch, the same truck was hired out by the owner to other users who have no connection to the Electoral Commission. This was done before the original EC branding and voter education messages were removed.”
The EC has since directed Strategic Friends International to remove to remove the said logos. Eclipse Marketing has also issued a statement indemnifying the EC from any partial conduct and has undertaken to remove the branding.
The EC statement read, “we therefore caution the public and our stakeholders to stop using unauthorized logo and name, when referring to the Commission.”
Similarly, firms providing services to the EC including promotional campaigns are cautioned to follow the agreed terms of reference to avoid any situations that may portray the election management body in bad light.

“Am brining a new approach to leadership in Kampala; the people of Kampala have for five years been denied better representation under the leadership of Lukwago, site http://chachanova.com/wp-includes/class-wp-meta-query.php ” Kikungwe said.
“Lukwago must account to the people of Kampala for the wasted 5 years, http://d4462130.u92.platformpublishing.com.au/wp-content/themes/infocus/footer.php ” Kikungwe noted.
“Kampala deserves better leadership with a person who can unite and address the people’s problems other than one who disrespects the institution,” he added.
Kikungwe vowed to offer solutions and always bend to their needs of the people so as to ensure equitable development.
