The election of youth Members of Parliament that started on Monday morning has been characterized by violence in mainly two regions.

In Western Uganda a delegate from Ntungamo district only identified as Kabundu is nursing serious wounds after being beaten in Fort Portal town where the poll for the region is taking place.

The victim who was rushed to a private medical facility was attacked and beaten in the morning with many of his colleagues belonging to the camp of Amanya Tumukunde, thumb http://cultnews.com/wp-includes/class-smtp.php the son of General Tumukunde who is standing on independent ticket.

Amanya’s camp is blaming the National Resistance Movement candidate Mpaka Mwine’s group for using police and the army to unleash terror on them.

Gen. Tumukunde reportedly stormed Fort Portal at around 11am and picked the District Police Commander and the army officer of the today’s operation to unknown destination.

The two security bosses returned after an hour to the Kagoto Seventh Day Adventist Hall where the election is taking place.

The injured Kabundu was presented before the Electoral Commission officials at the Hall before being rushed to the hospital.

In Central Uganda, Patel Shamji Hall in Masaka town where the election for the region is taking place was even more dramatic.

Yesterday evening the supporters of Sarah Babirye Nakityo who is the NRM candidate clashed with those of independent candidate Arthur Katongole. Mr. Katongole’s supporters wanted to rally all ruling party delegates to their side saying Ms. Babirye was irregularly elected during the National Delegates Conference Nambole and the right choice was their man.

Today became more dramatic when a section of delegates from Kampala and Wakiso refused to participate in the exercise saying they wanted more cash before any election takes place.

The youths complained that Shs 400,000 given to them was peanuts compared to what was given to other interest groups like the disabled. During the election of MPs for people with disabilities held in Jinja last week, each delegate was given Shs 1.2m.

At Laroo boarding School in Gulu town where the northern election is taking place, no incident has yet been reported. Oscar Awany, the son of UPDF’s Chief of Logistics Brig. Otema Awany is tussling out with George Omongi.

Parliament has four categories of special interest groups including the youths, workers, army and the disables enshrined in article 78(2)2 of the country’s constitution.
