Nabakooba warns nominated Candidates on MoH guidelines

KAMPALA- The Information and National Guidance Minister  Hon Judith Nabakooba has called upon fellow politicians who are campaigning to be elected for electoral office in January 2021 general elections to avoid putting themselves and their supporters into trouble with Police by ignoring all COVID19-related restrictions issued by  the Electoral Commission.

Nabakooba told a Press Conference in Kampala today that total compliance is the only way all leaders are going to campaign without exposing their people and potential voters to the risk of contracting Coronavirus.

She pointed out that for the government mitigation efforts to be sustainable, every citizen must play their part by way of wearing their face mask, regularly washing their hands and observing adequate physical distancing each time they go in public and crowded places.

More importantly, Nabakooba said that the leaders currently running for elective office at whatever level have even higher obligation to conduct their campaigns in ways that don’t amplify the spread of the virus.

The Electoral Commission Chairman Simon Byabakama Mugyenyi recently issued guidelines for candidates to closely work with District COVID taskforces and his Returning Officers in the districts to ensure the campaigning venues are well secured.

Byabakama Mugyenyi also warned candidates against using abusive language against their opponents and warned that any one found doing so will be disqualified.
