Lucima said there has been no heavy deployment in Kenya to an extent of scaring off voters as it is always the case in Uganda.


During the recently concluded by-elections in Butaleja, many opposition politicians reported there was heavy deployment in the area to an extent that some voters decided to remain in their homes and abandoned voting.


Francis Mwijukye, a member of the FDC National Publicity Committee last month said due to heavy deployment in Butaleja, out of the 90,000 registered voters, less than 40,000 turned up for the election process.

Lucima said during elections police men are poured over the areas and act as election observers which should be entirely the work of the Electoral Commission.


He said this National Service Police Force would help in promoting the rule of law unlike the current police that is time and again formulating mew laws aimed at infringing on the rights of Ugandans.


On the other hand Lucima said Uganda celebrating the Women’s Day is just a formality given that many women are still suffering from Sexual Gender Based Violence in the country.


He said the antenatal and postnatal services are still poor and many women are dying due to poor health facilities in the country.
