As the parliamentary by elections in Bukoto South in Lwengo district in greater Masaka district have drawn nearer, the supporters of FDC, DP and NRM took to the roads and entered villages on Tuesday in preparation to cast their votes on July 12th.
The youth in hundreds jumped onto trucks, shouting in support of their respective candidates. The NRM candidate is Alintuma Nsambu, the DP candidate is the party’s Secretary General, Mathias Nsubuga and the FDC candidate in the race is little known Julius Sentamu.
Boda boda cyclists joined the DP, FDC and the NRM youth in sounding alarms and hooting as they made processions.
But the police arrested a number of DP youth for singing anti president Museveni songs. The seat fell vacant after Muyanja Mbabaali was thrown out of Parliament by the court over lack of enough academic qualifications.
