Independent Presidential Candidate Lt. Gen. Henry Tumukunde has castigated the police for foiling his campaigns in South-Western Uganda.

Tumukunde, who spent last week in Ankole Kigezi region started his campaigns in Rukungiri district, and concluded in Rubirizi district, accused the police of frustrating his campaigns.

Tumukunde says that his supporters were roughed up and teargassed by the police in Mbarara, Mitooma and Kabwohe. 

In Mbarara, Tumukunde abandoned his rally after failing to agree with the security personnel on the venue. Tumukunde who had earlier booked Booma golf grounds was forced to abandon his campaign after police insisted that he holds the rally in Kakyeeka Stadium.

According to Tumukunde, the police is intentionally frustrating his opportunity to communicate his manifesto to his supporters.

//Cue in: “we have not…

Cue out: …extremely very painful.”//

He also said they were interrupted by the heavy rains, poor terrain and bad roads which made them fail to meet their supporters in time and also missing out on one district Kisoro.

During his campaigns Tumukunde, promised to have a nutritional program of providing milk to school children.  He also promised to put in place a special program for Bunyaruguru, Kanungu, Kisoro, Rukungiri, Buhweju, Bushenyi to improve on the road network.

//Cue in: “in my time…

Cue out: “…something in Switzerland.”//

Tumukunde now heads to the Rwenzori region where he is scheduled to begin his campaigns in Kasese district on Monday.
