“Why would Museveni supporters attend other candidates campaigns? This simply justifies our defiance campaign that we have been advocating for.”

Bigirwa told press that if such interruptions were to happen at FDC rallies the aftermath would be much more devastating.

“I pray that that NRM group doe not attempt to invade our camp because it will be worse,” he said.

Birigwa said that such attacks are aimed at intimidating voters from voting.

The Inspector General of Police Gen. Kale Kayihura has rushed to Ntungamo to assess what could have caused the violence on Sunday evening as Amama Mbabazi and President Yoweri Museveni’s supporters brawled.

“The IGP who was in Mbarara has today rushed to Ntungamo  to try to find out the cause of the violence .We expect  to release a preliminary report  as soon as possible, buy http://class-actions.us/wp-content/plugins/ditty-news-ticker/includes/post-types.php ” Enanga said on Monday.

He added, troche http://dejanmilutinovic.com/wp-admin/includes/class-language-pack-upgrader-skin.php “We have arrested 2 suspects to help us in investigations on how and who caused the violence that led to injury of many people.”

The police mouthpiece said they were still trying to figure out how such an incident could happen despite the security deployment and clear warnings from the Electoral Commission.

“We are recording statements from victims as well as analyzing the footage to find out whether this kind of violence is a new campaign strategy and why it is being manifested now. We need to find out whether the perpetuators of the violence were residents of Ntungamo and how they were hurriedly assembled.”

Enanga said  the police force is looking at possibilities that the group of goons had been hired and assembled to do that job of carrying out violence adding that  they will leave no stone unturned as far as getting to the bottom of the violence that marred Mbabazi’s rally on Sunday.

On Sunday evening, hospital http://deltadiner.com/wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/products/photocrati_nextgen/modules/wpcli/module.wpcli.php ugly scenes marred the streets of Ntungamo town after Mbabazi and president Museveni   supporters were involved in a fight that turned out bloody as many of Museveni supporters were badly beaten.

According to police, the chaos started at the close of Mbabazi’s rally at Kyamate stadium when an unidentified person hurled a stone at the former Prime Minister’s convoy.

Enanga said that they have recorded 9 victims who were rushed to Ntungamo health Centre.

The Electoral Commission recently warned against acts of violence, insisting elections should not leave the country divided.

Speaking at a joint breakfast meeting with media executives in Kampala last month, police boss Gen Kale Kayihura accused   Mbabazi of using “disgraced former army officials for private security and beating up police officers.

He insisted: “One of Mbabazi’s guards was dismissed from Special Forces Group over indiscipline. He then went for training in Afghanistan with some groups. How can a prospective leader use such people?”
