Justice Simon Byabakama has told the Sheema North aspiring candidates that they are the ones to determine the heavy deployment of security in campaigns.
Ending up his two days consultative meetings in Sheema North constituency on Friday at the district headquarters, Byabakama said that to avoid the Arua saga in Sheema north, the candidates should not at one time complain about the heavy deployment of police and Army especially on the day of voting.
“You are the ones who determine whether heavy security to be deployed or not basing on the situation you put on during your campaigns. But this time around we won’t entertain any nonsense, you disobey we handle you constitutionally ” he said
Guma Nuwagaba and Frank Owoyesigyire the prospective candidates who are now competing for NRM flag bearer appealed to the commission to save them from intruders who may cause harm on them.
Nuwagaba noted that intruders including Ashraph Rweyeshera a renowned notorious NRM cadre have already penetrated the constituency attacking some candidates thus calling for action from the commission.
However, Ms Naome kibaaju candidate in NRM primaries defended Rweyeshera and told Justice Byabakama that her opponents are just cowards and that’s why they have started funny excuses.
“Beating people in (Sheema) municipality, Igara East and Rwampara elections doesn’t mean that he will also beat those of Sheema north. You are cowards, that’s why you have started funny excuses because you know that when I’m with him…..” Kibaaju
In Reply, Byabakama noted that the Electoral Commission is aware of those people who take themselves as machineries but said “we shall arrest them because we know them”
