As other TownCouncils were celebrating when Parliament endorsed the Local Government`s motion to create 12 new municipalities, order in Kitgum it was only a disaster in the making.

Anywar and former Makerere University Guild President, Denis Onekalit Amere immediately declared intentions to represent the new Kitgum Municipality in Parliament on the FDC ticket.

To Anywar, who holds that she introduced Dr. Besigye and the opposition party to the rural district, it was political disobedience for a “young boy” to challenge her.

According to her close friends, Anywar believes Onekalit was fronted by party officials against her. The struggle between the two groups exploded on Sunday and Monday when diplomacy was discarded and muscles flexed at the party offices.

Onekalit’s group, who reportedly enjoys the support of the district leadership, accused the group of Anywar for ransacking the office and causing damage. They claim Anywar picked a bottle and almost hit it on the head of the district FDC chairperson Moi Alfred.

Anywar however told us on phone that the district party officials had connived with opponents and the party Electoral Commission team sent from Kampala to rig the elections.

The primary election was called off pending another decision to be taken from the party headquarters. ChimReports has learnt that a team of officials are heading to the hot spot tomorrow to iron out the impasse.

The FDC National Vice Chairperson for northern region, Reagan Okumu told us on phone last night that the party is keenly following the events in one of its strongholds and wants to immediately address them.

“We have acknowledged the anomalies that happened in Kitgum which is one of our stronghold districts as you know it. A team from our head office is going there on Sunday to solve the matter,” Okum revealed.

Without divulging details, Okumu added that the process was unfair to some of the candidates. According to him the holding of primary elections only came to be known over the weekend when some interested parties had not prepared.

“I think some of the district party officials were unfair to some candidates. The election itself was sort of kept secret,” Okumu added.

The national coordinator for Platform to Rescue Uganda (PRU), view http://clintonhouse.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/manage/activate-admin.php Gen. David Sejusa has advised members of the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) to abandon president Yoweri Museveni as their candidate for 2016 general election and replace him with a more suitable former party Secretary General, stomach http://dentistryatthepark.com/wp-includes/link-template.php Amama Mbabazi.

Sejusa told journalists at Uganda People’ Congress (UPC) headquarters at Uganda House yesterday that the decision of fielding president Museveni as the party sole candidate is an illegality that shouldn’t be allowed by the party.

The General noted that the country shouldn’t be hoodwinked by the new constitutional reforms to abandon the main project of pushing president Museveni not to stand for 2016 general elections due to his old age.

“Ugandans shouldn’t be blinded by the droll constitutional reforms, approved http://closdescapucins.fr/wp-includes/class-wp-image-editor-imagick.php the major issue is; does Museveni qualify as a candidate yet he will exceed the age limit mid next term once he is voted again. This is the issue all Ugandans must focus onto,” Sejusa observed.

Asked by reporters whether or not the NRM would be split if the former Secretary General Amama Mbabazi decided to stand against Yoweri Museveni for presidency, Sejusa he said that was unlikely.

“My advice to the ruling party is actually that members should rally behind Mr Mbabazi rather than the aging Museveni. They should be thinking of hopping onto the new bus,” he said.

Early this week, Amama Mbabazi while speaking to press, hinted on continuing the pursuit for his political ambitions, irrespective of the resolution taken by the NRM party leadership at Kyankwanzi unanimously endorsing President Museveni for re-election in 2016.

The former premier described the Kyankwanzi resolution as “a mere opinion”, fuelling speculation that he could stand against Museveni in the race for party chairmanship in the upcoming NRM polls.

Opposition leaders in Uganda have formed a new campaign  dubbed  ‘Citizens’ Reforms Now’ in a bid  to pile pressure on government to accept proposed electoral reforms which include the disbanding of the current Electoral Commission, malady http://curaacufeni.com/wp-includes/ms-files.php Chimp Corps report.

Ousted Kampala Mayor Erias Lukwago who was flanked by FDC ironman, mind http://corepr.pl/wp-admin/includes/file.php Col Kizza Besigye, http://cinselistekartirici.org/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/_inc/lib/class.color.php Ingrid Turinawe and Asuman Basalirwa among others, said the opposition “rejects government’s proposed election bill and demands for clear and structural reforms.”

He said several proposals have been sent to parliament by opposition but “have yielded nothing,” adding, “we will fight until they are realised.”

Speaking with fury, Lukwago said the new political campaign “shall involve a number of activities to ensure the new bill is scrapped.”

He observed: “It’s aimed at rallying all citizens to desist this new bill after the reforms endorsed by political parties and Civil Society Organizations last year was disregarded by government  and instead brought another fake bill .”

Government this week introduced the much-anticipated Election Amendment Bill but opposition said they could not accept a new law that seeks to entrench the president’s powers in appointing the EC leadership.

The Bill also hands the president powers to appoint and dismiss the Judicial Service Commission that is mandated to vet the EC leadership.

“This new bill made cosmetic changes  and  falls far short of people expectations and fails to fetch credible reforms. We strongly object to this bill,” stressed Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago at the press conference on Thursday morning.

The team says they want a new Electoral Commission whose independence is entirely secured right from appointment. Describing the new changes as merely cosmetic, Lukwago added that bill would have no impact on the current EC.

Speaking at the conference, Former FDC President Col Kizza Besigye emphasized that the country had never seen a credible election since independence.

“For the last 52 years we have not had any credible election  and part of the scars our country bears, is as a result of rigged elections,” he said.

“[President Yoweri] Museveni went to bush and came to power because of the rigged elections by government in 1980. We are not talking about a simple matter; our livelihood depends on elections because it’s the voice of the people.”

“You all saw the violence that  happened in Kenya in 2007  and what is now taking place in Burundi. We can’t forego the importance of elections because our livelihood depends on the elections which represent the voice of the people.”

The former FDC President  said he had lost trust in opinion polls which seemed to favour the current government, noting that they are conducted in an environment of terror.

“Yet most of them will tell you that 70% Ugandans don’t have faith in the electoral commission.The people manning the Electoral Commission are not qualified and are not supposed to be there. The electoral commission is fake and operating under fake laws. How can you have an electoral commission appointed by a candidate?” wondered Besigye.

The Citizens Reform Now campaign is  rallying for a new Electoral Commission to be formed, and a new voters’ register that is not generated from the National ID system.

They also demand that Ugandans living abroad will be allowed to take part in the election, and that the president will be stripped of appointment powers of the EC leadership.

They also want the involvement of security organs in the electoral process to be regulated and that the ruling government must not be allowed to touch the national coffers at the Bank of Uganda.

According to the opposition activists, they are set to roll out a series of activities meant to ensure that government yields to their demands and does away with the new Election Amendment Bill tabled introduced early this week.
