On Wednesday, efforts to conduct fresh primaries by lining up turned chaotic after thousands of NRM supporters besieged the polling stations for more than three hours forcing police to fire tear gas to disperse them.
Poor diets, chronic food shortages, poor sanitation and high levels of diarrhoea and malaria were cited as major contributors to the situation. High workloads for mothers and therefore reduced time for breastfeeding and other childcare were also cited as driving malnutrition.
The victims are from the three villages of Namusambya, Town East and Kilamin neighbouring Obongi Ferry landing site. They sought temporary shelter at the school after their homes were submerged by the floods.
Moses Opio and Edward Mutesa, all attached to Oyam Central Police Station had gone to arrest Boniface Muntu, a resident of Acot-owinyere cell, Western ward, Oyam Town Council for allegedly stealing water pipes, chamber covers, water meters and other water items.
