Campaigns Kicked Off Peacefully – Police

Police spokesperson, pills Fred Enanga has revealed that despite the alleged attack on one of Presidential aspirant Hon Amama Mbabazi’s agents on Saturday, the first campaign day kicked off peacefully in the different parts of the country.

“After the Electoral Commission (EC) harmonized the campaign programs of the different presidential candidates, we haven’t noticed any incidence that is contrary to the laws governing their campaigns; we however still warn them against use of hate and abusive language to avoid any form of conflict that might arise from their supporters,” noted Fred Enanga.

Enanga revealed that thorough investigations are ongoing into allegations that a campaign agent of Mbabazi was brutally attacked on his way to Ssembabule District and his car burnt to ashes.

“We are following up the issue where a one Meddie Kikomeko was attacked by unidentified persons who allegedly burnt his car, a Toyota Premio Reg.No. UAB 873L and Mbabazi’s posters.”

Preliminary investigations, he said, indicated that while Kikomeko was on his way to Ssembabule District, he was stopped by unknown men who requested for a lift, they expressed support and introduced themselves as agents to his candidate Amama Mbabazi.

“On the way they got misunderstandings and he realized that they wanted to kill him, he then decided to jump out of the car for his life which he found burnt the day after, with all the posters.”

Enanga observed that there are many unanswered queries to this incident, noting the Kikomeko must have been known in the area.

“He must have been introduced to his campaign managers; how did these people know that Kikomeko was heading to Masaka with Mbabazi’s posters.”

“We want to investigate thoroughly the persons he was communicating with in Ssembabule, we are already tracking all the contacts he made to come out with leading information to the different suspects.”

On this note, the Police mouth piece called upon all candidates to avoid disrupting campaigns of their fellow candidates revealing that this is illegal and against the Presidential Elections Act.
