National Resistance Movement (NRM) presidential candidate Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has cancelled his scientific campaign that was supposed to be in Mukono today.
This comes following the Electoral Commission’s cancellation of campaigns in cities considered Covid-19 hotspots.Over the weekend, the EC announced: “The Electoral Commission has suspended campaign meetings in districts and cities categorised by Ministry of Health as having high spread of COVID-19. From
26/12/2020, no campaign meetings will be held in Mbarara, Kabarole, Luwero, Kasese, Masaka, Wakiso, Kabarole, Jinja, Kalungu, Kazo, Kampala and Tororo District.”
And in respect of the directive, candidate Museveni announced:“Our campaign meeting in Mukono that was scheduled for today is off because of the Electoral Commission directive banning political gatherings in some districts.
Instead, I will address our people through radio and TV this evening.”
This comes hours after police blocked FDC candidate Patrick Amuriat Oboi who was blocked from accessing Tororo where he was scheduled to campaign.
