NTUNGAMO- The NRM electoral commission Chairman, Dr Tanga Odoi has threatened to disqualify the former Ntungamo District woman MP Hon Naome Kabasharira who is battling with the state minister for labour and industrial relations for the Rushenyi county seat for inciting violence among the voters.
According to Dr Odoi, Hon Kabasharira has been mobilizing to demonstrate and block the Ntungamo-Kabale road which is uncalled for in this case. This follows Hon Kabasharira’s comments that she will put off her hands and let Rushenyi on fire.
He revealed that Hon Kabasharira will get a rude shock because it is not accepted in NRM guidelines to mobilize voters to demonstrate and paralyze the business of innocent Ugandans.
Dr Odoi made these statements during the Ntungamo Municipality mayoral and councilor’s elections which were rescheduled for today due to flaunting of NRM’s regulations.
He said that after manning the Ntungamo Municipality mayoral and councilors elections he will proceed to Nyakahita village where the Kabasharira camp claims that the voting was not conducted and thereafter he will announce the winner of the Rushenyi county MP seat.
Dr Odoi also warned candidates against importing voters from outside their electoral territories saying that it must stop with immediate effect.
However, today the NRM electoral commission headed by Dr Tanga Odoi used NRM registers and National IDs to verify the eligible voters in the Municipality.
The NRM Electoral Coordinator for Western Region Dr Kamukama Dickson has postponed the Ntungamo Municipality Mayoral and Council party elections that should have taken place on September 14 2020.
Ntungamo Municipality has 6,000 registered voters but over 50,000 people have been ferried to participate in NRM primaries.
The hotly contested mayoral seat has attracted three people including the incumbent Jacob Kafureeka alias Jack Jex, the chairperson Eastern Division Hajji Hakim Muheki Rwomushana and district councilor Ronald Bukenya.
However, the preliminary results are showing the incumbent Jacob Kafureeka alias Jack Jex, is leading the two.
