Forum for Democratic Change party is considering legal action against Capt. Peter Mugisha, the Kisoro Resident District Commissioner for intimidating opposition supporters.
Last week on Friday while campaigning for National Resistance Movement (NRM) party presidential flag bearer Yoweri Museveni at Nyakinama sub-county headquarters, Mugisha threatened to shoot supporters of opposition candidates on their larries in Kisoro district.
Mugisha repeated the same threats on Saturday in Murora sub-county. Mugisha says that security operatives will shoot and attack opposition supporters especially when they attempt to lit fire along the roads while welcoming their candidates.
Mugisha also says that opposition supporters especially those of NUP that try to demonstrate should first dig their graves because security is ready to kill them.
According to the Electoral commission campaign road map, Amuriat was scheduled to campaign in Kisoro, Rubanda and Kabale last week to hold rallies at Nyakabande primary school playground in Nyakabande sub county, Cyanika border in Cyanika town council and Rubuguri town council before proceeding to Rubanda and Kabale.
However, at the Kanaba security checkpoint, he was blocked by the anti-riot police and Uganda People’s Defense Forces soldiers ordering him and his supporters to be checked first. Amuriat turned angry and removed barricades in the middle of the road by force.
Now, Nandala Mafabi , FDC party secretary says that they are considering seeking legal redress over Mugisha’s utterances.
He also says that after their tour in Kigezi region they got all evidences of Mugisha which will help them in courts of laws because it’s a right of Ugandans to support their own party according to Uganda’s constitution.
