President Yoweri Museveni has Tuesday afternoon called on NRM supporters and other electorates in Kyadondo East to vote for Sitenda Sebalu in the coming parliamentary by-elections.
The President said Sebalu who is the NRM flag bearer is the best person he can work with easily to deliver services to the people of Kyadondo.
“Do not be misled by other people, ‘omwana wange Ono yasinga’,” he said.
Sebalu is running against two other competitors including FDC’s Apollo Kantinti and Independent Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine.
The seat fell vacant in April after Court of Appeal upheld the lower court decision that nullified the election of Kantinti as the Kyadondo East Constituency Member of Parliament.
Three justices; Richard Buteera, Cheborion Balishaki and Paul Mugamba would later order for fresh elections which are slated to be held on Thursday June 29th.
With two days to voting date, campaigns have since intensified in the area with every camp doing final touches to seal victory for their candidate.
Earlier today, Sebalu was picked and arrested by Police under rather unclear circumstances.
He was arrested together with the Wakiso district NRM chairperson Hajji Abdu Kiyimba from Wampeewo playground which was meant to be the second venue for today’s rallies before being released shortly.
In his remarks, Sitenda thanked President Museveni for sparing his busy schedule to “come and bless him” ahead of Thursday polls.
He assured the president of his unreserved cooperation with the people of the area and that he will work tirelessly to deliver the services to the people.
