Kabarole DPC Defies CAO Orders on Besigye Rally

Police in Kabarole and the district Chief Administrative Officer [CAO] have disagreed on the campaign program of one of the Presidential Candidates Col Dr Kizza Besigye of the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC).

Reports from the western district indicate that District Police Commander Musa Tibahikirana has defied the directive of the CAO Geoffrey Ogwang Okello and permitted Dr Besigye’s rally, sildenafil http://cooperativenet.com/wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/products/photocrati_nextgen/modules/nextgen_basic_album/adapter.nextgen_basic_extended_album_form.php scheduled for tomorrow December 17th at Buhinga Grounds in Fort Portal Municipality.

Yesterday, the CAO Ogwang wrote to the DPC, asking him to disallow the rally at Buhinga on grounds that it would inconvenience patients at a nearby Hospital.

“The [Buhinga] ground is near Fort Portal Regional Referral Hospital which is accommodating many patients of different illnesses and rallies or any noise may distract the peace of the patients,” read part of the CAO’s letter to the DPC.

Mr Ogwang asked the police commander to advise Besigye’s team to move to another venue such as the Booma Grounds.

The DPC, we have learnt however, disregarded the letter and gave green light to the organizers to proceed with the rally at Buhinga.

Col Besigye, who is hunting for votes in the predominantly NRM Tooro Kingdom districts of Kyegegwa, Kyenjojo, Kamwenge and Kabarole, is expected address two rallies in Kabarole on top of several stopovers as well as opening the party offices at Rwimi.

The opposition party coordinator in the district Ms Nyakato Rusoke expressed gratitude to the police boss for standing against the CAO’s orders.

“Good enough, police is aware that ours is a defiance campaign. The program stands,” she bragged.

“There is no harm in what we are doing at Buhinga. Besides, why should our opponents determine where FDC should hold its activities from?” she wondered.
