Kiggundu noted that the need for extra days is also linked to the fact that the parish centers are concurrently carrying out two exercises which include verification of Ugandan citizens for acquisition of the National Identity card and update of voters’ register.

“As a result of the extension of the general update period, some activities on the road map to the 2016 general elections have been adjusted,” Kiggundu observed.

Kiggundu revealed that the display of registers for Youth, PWDs and Older Persons in each village will be conducted from June 30 to July 9, 2015.

“Display of the National Voters’ Register at each polling station in line with Electoral Commission Act section 24 (1) and section 25 (1) will commence on June 30 to July 20, 2015.”

Nomination of candidates for village youth, PWDs and Older persons elections will start from July 3 to July 14, 2015. Campaigns for village youth, PWDs and Older persons will be conducted from July 17 to September 9, 2015.

“The rest of the activities on the road map remain as earlier communicated.”

Asked to comment on the new constitutional reforms that call for the change of the EC name to an Independent Electoral Commission, Kiggundu noted that the commission is yet to receive any official communication but promised to adhere to any reforms issued and for any disagreements, the commission would appeal to Parliament.
United Nations has prepared for an emergency operation “given the possible deterioration of the security situation in Burundi, drug http://cogocapital.com/lp/wp-includes/functions.wp-styles.php ” officials have revealed.

The UN Mission in DRC said this week that the string of the massive flow of the persons fleeing Burundi to the neighbouring countries, and including the DRC’s territories of Uvira and Fizi in the South Kivu province, there is much commotion among the Congolese authorities and within the United Nations where the situation in Burundi is closely monitored.

The incumbent Burundian President, Pierre Nkurunziza has been designated by his party to run for the third term, which is formally banned by the Constitution and the Arusha Agreements (Tanzania).

But Nkurunziza’s supporters say he served only one term by adult suffrage since the first was by Parliament’s appointment.

Riots have since rocked Bujumbura with police cracking down on media organisations and arresting hundreds of people including prominent activist Claver Mbonimpa.

With the political Opposition’s determination to stand in Mr. Nkurunziza’s way and to defy government’s resolve to quash any popular uprising, hundreds Burundians have decided to flee and find refuge in Rwanda, Kenya and in the DRC’s territories bordering on Uvira and Fizi in the South Kivu province.

The Immigration officials at the border Post in Kavimvira (Uvira) said, “We have noticed massive displacement of the population from Burundi into the DRC for the past few days. Earlier we could daily register between 800 and 120 people crossing the border daily. This Monday morning, surprisingly, there were more than 1,800.”

As evidence of the alarming situation, on Monday morning the Uvira Security Council met to develop a contingency plan, in response to the Burundian’s refugees’ influx into the DRC.

The different security services were requested to proceed with their registration at the border. Government immigration officials report that it is mostly young people, women and children who are fleeing Burundi with their luggage.

The national refugees commission (CNR-Uvira) registered as of last Friday, more than 2,800 Burundians, say about 800 families.

Some of them had migration papers and mainly came from the provinces of Bubanza and Cibitoke, in the Ruzizi Plain; others came from Makamba, Bururi and Nyanza Lakes and crossed Tanganyika Lake by boats into the territory of Fizi.

The same source reports that the fleeing Burundians said it is out of fear of the insecurity to stem from the upcoming presidential election, scheduled for next June and “the forceful conscription of the militia by the ruling party.”

A portion of players from Kenya premier league champions, approved http://chamberhealthcoop.com/wp-admin/includes/update-core.php Gor Mahia FC have  blamed the team management for the poor manner in which they handled Ugandan defender Israel Emuge after he lost his son.

According to Futaa, http://channelingerik.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/gravatar-hovercards.php the defender had earlier on requested the team for a sum of approximately Ushs.230, 000 to treat his son. His plea fell on deaf ears.

Sooner than later the tragedy befell him.

Gor Mahia chairman, Mr. Ambrose Rachier, who also doubles as the KPL chairman then gave him a total of Ushs. 450,000 (which was double what he needed for treatment) to aid the Ugandan in burial expenses.

“Emuge lost his son but management didn’t help him in any way till today. Even as players, we knew and wanted to contribute but we couldn’t do that because normally it’s the captain who informs us and the mode of contributing and the amount but nobody told us just when we were preparing to fly to Congo for the return leg yet his son had died on that Tuesday (31st March),” one of the concerned players told the Kenyan media house on condition of anonymity.

The team’s captain, Jeremy Onyango, partly disregarded the reports, claiming that the players and the technical bench helped him.

“We were to do something as a club yes, but as players and technical bench we talked to him (Emuge) and did what we could.  So if the office maybe didn’t do anything for him I am not aware.”

The chairman on his part said that despite the club’s financial constraints the player was given help,

“Yes we are aware that Israel Emuge was bereaved and am glad that you are talking about the club didn’t t do much, that has got two points in it, one, we did something, he may not consider it sufficient but we gave him payment not from the club but from well-wishers including myself so the amount are things that somebody judges, maybe you expect 200 000 shillings and we give you 100 000 shillings so you say we have not done much,” Rachier reiterated.

He further added that, “Secondly as a club we are struggling, so for those reasons we gave him what we could which may not have been what he expected and number three, as you know in matters of funeral, really, it’s a collective effort, it’s not a club’s responsibility, the club can only give something and others also do the way we did and the club made a donation too.”

Walusimbi’s plight

Still in Gor Mahia’s camp, Uganda Cranes defender, Godfrey Walusimbi’s agent has hinted that they (Walusimbi and the agent) are considering terminating his contract with the Kenyan champions on grounds of non-payment.

“I know very well that he is not being paid so if he is not getting paid we shall have to terminate the contract.”

Mr. Rachier responded bullishly by saying that he didn’t know about the issue but the player could leave he wanted and Gor Mahia will still get more players.

“I haven’t received any communication of that sort but we are always prepared. Any player can terminate the contract. It’s always open and we get going with others who may come in to fill the positions.”

Walusimbi has been instrumental two consecutive successful league campaigns for the team which is also home to Khalid Aucho.
