“Violence” seems to be the perfect way to describe the National Resistance Movement Party Primaries in Ssembabule District.
News reaching our desks indicates that a supporter of H.E. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni’s brother, Aine Godfrey Kaguta Sodo was set on fire while he slept in his house last night by unknown people. The victim only known as Niwamanya Haruna a resident of Mawogola North donned in a Sodo campaign T-shirt was admitted at Beacof Medical Centre in Sembabule Town after suffering severe burns.
The victim while speaking to NBS stated that he believes his house was set on fire with some fluid that smelt like petrol, a highly flammable substance that saw his house burn as he escaped to a neighbors place to ensure his survival. He attributes his attack to the supporters of his candidate’s opponent, Shartsi Musherure, a daughter to Minister for Foreign Affairs, Hon. Sam Kutesa.
As of today, the NRM’s Electoral Commission through its chairman Dr. Tanga Odoi suspended the Mawogola North Elections.
