Independent Presidential candidate Joseph Kabuleta has revealed that the bodyguards assigned to him are government spies.

The Electoral Commission - EC assigned each presidential aspirant a campaign vehicle and 10 counter terrorist police officers for security during the campaign period.

Kabuleta, a former sports journalist said the bodyguards are soldiers dressed in police uniforms deployed to spy on him for the government, yet he is the one facilitating them on a daily basis.

He said much as I don’t want them around, there is nothing he can do to get rid of them since they are assigned by the Electoral Commission as mandated by the law.

// Cue in: “I don’t mind…

Cue out …going to change.” //

Kabuleta also blamed the bodyguards for leaking his personal information to the government, something that he said led to the raiding of one of his campaign agents’ home few days ago.

He made the revelation on Monday afternoon at Bomah Hotel in Gulu City during the launch of his manifesto. In his manifesto, Kabuleta pledged for an affirmative action for Northern Uganda for the reparation following the 25 years of the Lord’s Resistance Army war that led to the displacement of people, loss of lives and destruction of properties.

Paul Bukenya, the EC spokesman however said a presidential candidate is entitled to security guards since they are contesting in a high profile position in the country. Bukenya said there are still doubts and misconceptions by the aspirants surrounding the deployment of the security guards, something they are engaging the aspirants about.

Campaigns have kicked off officially today but under strict guidelines in a bid to avoid the spread of COVID -19.
