The Deputy Inspector General of Police, Major General Sabiiti Muzeyi, is in Sembabule district to oversee the NRM parliamentary primaries for Mawogola North and West constituencies due on September 30.
Maj Gen Muzeyi spent the better part of Monday, September 28, 2020 meeting district security officers in a bid to avert any form of violence in the election.
The primaries in the two constituencies had been called off hours to the polling day on September 4th, over acts of violence in which several people were injured and property vandalized.
Maj Gen Muzeyi’s presence has seen deployment heightened in different parts of the district.
The Greater Masaka regional Police Spokesperson, Mr Muhammad Nsubuga, explained that Muzeyi has moved in ahead of time to engage the officers on how to better execute their responsibilities of maintaining stability throughout the election exercise that has created excitement in the area.
The NRM Electoral Commission Chairperson, Dr. Tanga Odoi, has also announced that he is going to directly take charge of election in the area as well as make new deployments on the election officers to avoid possibilities of manipulation.
In Mawogola West, the incumbent MP Joseph Ssekabiito is facing Anifa Kawooya Bangirana, who is crossing from being the Sembabule district Woman representative to be elected in the constituency.
In Mawogola North, the race is between Shartis Musherure Kuteesa and President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni’s younger brother Godfrey Aine Kaguta and Salim Kiseka.
