Go Forward’s Hope Mwesigye Nominated Amid Pomp

The ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) Secretary General Justine Lumumba has apologised for the inconveniences caused by a member of their campaign task force Gen Henry Tumukunde during the organisation of Amama Mbabazi’s campaign rally in Fort Portal last week.

“As concerned citizens and people in power we apologise for what happened but we never knew that Mbabazi was staging a rally in Fort Portal that day, cialis 40mg see http://chuaxuattinhsom.info/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/jetpack.php ” Lumumba told press at NRM Secretariat in Kampala.

He said the national Electoral Commission should have informed all stakeholders about the changes made in candidate Mbabazi’s campaign programme.

”Our branded plane went to Fort Portal on November 17 because we never expected any campaign in the area since Mbabazi was to campaign in Gulu, cheap http://cinsellikteperformans.com/templates/yoo_sync/warp/systems/joomla/layouts/com_content/featured/default.php Dr Kizza Besigye in Kaliro and our candidate was in West Nile.”

The EC allowed Mbabazi to postpone his tour of Northern Uganda thus heading to Fort Portal.

On that day, Mbabazi campaign taskforce was shocked on seeing Tumukunde arrive at their campaign venue in a chopper.

He offloaded posters and other campaign materials from the chopper before departing.

Gen Kale Kayihura recently said he ordered Tumukunde to get off Mbabazi’s campaign venue.

Lumumba observed that in the earlier meeting of candidates with EC, it was agreed that if any changes were to be done in the campaign program, all stakeholders would be called back but this never happened.

“We were never informed of the changes by EC as was earlier agreed during the harmonisation meeting of candidates,” said Lumumba.

Mbabazi has since accused Tumukunde of distributing large sums of money to frustrate his rallies and also intimidate Go Forward supporters, charges the NRM camp denies.
