The camps contesting for 2021 presidential elections say they face a challenge when mobilizing the 200 people that the Electoral Commission and Ministry of Health allow because most of them have never had a face mask, sanitized or known about guidelines to prevent COVID-19
The National Unity Platform -NUP candidate for Makindye West parliamentary seat, Allan Aloysius Ssewanyana was in police custody, two days, for staging a procession contrary to the COVID19 preventive guidelines and has been released this morning on police bond.
A Police Officer only identified with his nametag as Imalingat, who was part of the operation to arrest Sewanyana directed our reporter to get information from the Kampala Metropolitan Spokesperson on the charges preferred against the legislator.
Many of the residents and aspirants say that the Office of the RDC and the area police are selectively enforcing the COVID-19 guidelines, especially during the ongoing NRM primaries. They say that while NRM aspirants for the District and Parliamentary seats are freely holding public rallies and processions, similar activities by the opposition are being stifled.
