1 Dead in Sheema as NRM primary election campaigns come to climax

SHEEMA- The Police in Sheema District are investigating circumstances under which a 34 year old man died at the final day of the NRM party primary campaigns in Sheema south constituency.

According to SP Scovia Birungi the Sheema District Police Commander, the deceased was on the illegal campaign trucks of one of the contestants for the area parliamentary seat.

It all started when the security team led by the Sheema District RDC Frank Besigye Kyerere tried to stop the campaigning and the residents resisted to follow the security orders.

SP Birungi added that the campaigners instead decided to engage in feast exchange blows with the security team which later fired bullets in the air to disperse the rowdy crowds.

“The security team started firing bullets to disperse the crowds which caused the fracas and the process the man fell off the truck and died instantly” SP Birungi told the press.

The Sheema DPC noted that they so far have 34 goons in detention suspected to have been in the area to destabilize tomorrow’s election.

“We have in detention 34 goons especially from Kampala who are not the Sheema electorates. We anticipated that certain teams had ferried them into the area so that they can take away the ballot boxes if their masters lose” SP Birungi added.
we are soon taking them to courts of laws to answer charges accordingly.

The stiff competition in Sheema Municipality is between the former Tax commissioner Dicksons Kateshumbwa and the Incumbent Dr Elioda Tumwesigye the state Minister of Science and Technology.

In Sheema South, the Incumbent Prof Ephraim Kamuntu is facing Eng Dickens Mushemeza.

The Nrm will tomorrow Friday September 4th 2020 elect their parliamentary flag bearers for the 2021 general elections.
