PEACE PREVAILS: Kampala enjoys peace on debut day of Parliamentary nominations

KAMPALA- The Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesman Patrick Onyango says today’s nomination exercise generally went on peacefully in most of Kampala’s Metropolitan area.

Onyango told the press that they deployed several officers in strategic places to ensure that the exercise goes on smoothly without any major problem.

However, there are candidates who were trying to defy the EC guidelines of moving in two cars and for them they were travelling in a procession of motorcycles and motor vehicles.

Notably, these were Hon. Ssemujju Nganda of Kira Municipality, Hon. Allan Ssewanyana of Makindye West, Hon. Betty Nambooze of Mukono Municipality, Hon. Kato Lubwama of Lubaga South, Wakayima Hannington Musoke, a candidate in Nansana Municipality, Mr Farouk Ntege in Makindye Division, Mr. Mathias Mulumba candidate for Kawempe North. They were handled professionally according to Onyango.

“Over 15 motor vehicles that were part of Hon. Ssemujju’s convoy were impounded and parked at Nansana Police Station. Two suspects were arrested” Onyango added.

The KMP spokesman adds that “two motorcycles were also impounded.

Hon. Ssewanyana and Ntege are being held at Katwe Police Station. Hon. Ssewanyana is being held with over 31 of his supporters”.

In Kisekka Market, a group of youth attacked a joint security team, which was on normal routine patrol in that area, by pelting them with stones. 

They damaged a military vehicle and they responded with teargas and arrested four suspects who are currently being detained at CPS in Kampala.
