Fan Trouble.
Like it is the ‘norm’ specifically in matches involving the two sides, the fans engaged each other in ugly incidents, pelting stones and objects at each other for over twenty minutes while the security officers gathered for ‘safety’ close to the VIP wing.

Both the home team, organizers and the stadium security persons cared less about the safety of the fans allowing both sets to sit in the same pavilion.

The rescheduled date for the tie will be decided later by the league management.
The National Resistance Movement party National Chairman, approved http://chimpreports.com/elections/wp-includes/http.php President Yoweri Museveni has created a reconciliation committee to handle the unpleasant outcomes of the primary elections that have marginally pushed some staunch members and officials to the wall.

The development was revealed in the presence of Museveni by the party Secretary General Justine Kasule Lumumba during the opening of the National Delegates Conference for NRM Leagues at Mandela National Stadium, http://cfbtoman.com/wp-includes/class-wp-customize-manager.php Nambole.

On Thursday during her first address to the media after the primary elections for Members of Parliament mayors and LC5 Chairpersons, Lumumba sounded combative, explicitly stating that any member who lost in the internal elections and tries to stand as independent candidate shall be automatically shown the exit.

However on Friday in front special interest group delegates from all parts of the country, the S.G softened and asked for forgiveness from the parties who were bruised in the internal exercise.

Lumumba named over a dozen members of the group now named the National Reconciliation Committee composed of mainly senior and retired party members.

“Our party Chairman (Museveni) on his return from India came out with plan to form a committee to handle the disagreements which have emerged from our elections. He asked to us constitute the committee that I finished with my team yesterday evening,” Lumumba said.

Some of the members of National Reconciliation Committee hastily read by Lumumba are former ministers Edward Rugumayo for Trade, Tourism and Industries, Janet Mukwaya for Justice and Constitutional Affairs, the defected former Forum for Democratic Change party Chairman Electoral Commission, Maj. Rubamira Ruranga, Jane Akwero Odong, Stephen Kabuye among others.

Already 13 serving ministers including the historical Maj. Gen. Kahinda Otafire and Education, Sports and Science and Technology, Jesica Alupo are among the casualties of the chaotic primary elections.

The NRM party that has consolidated itself in power for now 30 decades knows that it cannot take chances of ignoring the disgruntled parties at this critical time when the opposition parties are yearning for new members.

The need to retain the party members informs the creation of the reconciliation committee.

Meanwhile the party has also fronted a total of 47 lawyers to face the hundreds of petitions being lodged in different courts across the country.

“We have also sought the service of 47 lawyers to help us handle the cases that are arising from the primary elections,” Lumumba added.
