Ugandan politics is both annoying and funny. People in power do all sorts of things to ensure they retain their seats or win the opposition but sometimes the opposing force is too strong to overcome.
This is at least true for Bukomansimbi District, where soldiers allegedly raided a polling station and ticked National Resistance Movement (NRM) LC 5 Chairman Julius Buregeya in an effort to give him an illegal hand in the race, but he still lost the election.
Our Moles reveal that all the malpractice was not enough to win Buregeya the election, because after vote counting, National Unity Platforms (NUP) candidate Fred Nyenje Kayiira emerged victorious with over 17,000 votes, compared to Buregeya’s 10,800.
Imagine what the difference would have been if the soldiers had not ticked some votes!
According to NTV Uganda, Bukomansimbi District Police Commander (DPC) Mansur Sowed confirmed the illegal, shameless raid by soldiers, adding that he was confused about why they were engaging in the malpractice.
It should be noted that Kayiira is currently bedridden after people he claims were security operatives beat the crap out of him when he was found distributing NUP documents to agents of then-presidential aspirant Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine on January 13, 2021.
