LC 1 Chairperson spends days in detention over voter bribery

RUBANDA- Deus Bonane, the Hamurara village LCI chairperson in Bubaare sub-county, Rubanda East county, Rubanda district has been arrested for alleged voter bribery.

Bonane was arrested on Friday morning at Hamurara polling station while distributing 5,000 shillings and surgical masks to supporters of the incumbent Henry Ariganyira Musasizi.

This followed cries from supporters of Musasiz’s opponent Kenneth Jogo Biryabarema, who is also Rubanda district LC5 chairman to protest why Bonane is paying voters yet it is illegal.

They attempted to beat him prompting police to intervene and drive him to Bubaare police station where he is being detained.

Elly Maate, the Kigezi region police spokesperson says that he is yet to receive any report about Bonane’s arrest.
