The Forum for Democratic Change presidential candidate, Patrick Amuriat Oboi traversed Isingiro district on Wednesday without his full security detail following the breakdown of their vehicle.

Amuriat's security vehicle broke down in Nyakitunda where he held his first campaign meeting. Presidential candidates are entitled to five bodyguards and a vehicle to transport them.

However, Amuriat is currently moving with only one bodyguard in his official car. Roland Mugume Kaginda, the FDC chief campaign manager blames the bad roads in Isingiro district for the breakdown of their security vehicle.

He said they have resorted to using their private security guards as they wait for the security vehicle.

Stanley Katembeya, the Mbarara City FDC party Chairperson, faulted the Electoral Commission for failing to provide spare vehicles in case one breaks down.

“Presidential candidates are supposed to be with at least a vehicle at standby in case one gets a problem because these roads are very bad for these types of cars,” he said.

The Electoral Commission spokesperson, Paul Bukenya, says it is the responsibility of the Commission to repair the faulty vehicle once the matter is brought to their attention.
