Go Forward presidential candidate Amama Mbabazi has provided Supreme Court with video recordings proving acts of election fraud during the 2016 presidential elections.
In the video is contained evidence of presiding officers allegedly being instructed by their superiors to pre-tick ballot papers in favour of President Museveni.
According to Sunday Monitor, the video recordings are part of the more than 60 additional affidavits; featuring a one Fred Amanyire, a resident of Ngogoli 1 village, Kyangwali Parish, Kyangwali Sub-county, Buhannuzi County, Hoima District and 2016 presiding officer.
Amanyire claims their supervisor, Nelson Atumanya, on February 17 met all presiding officers and instructed them to delay the election exercise to ensure that not more than half of the registered voters would be able to cast their votes in the prescribed time.
He also allegedly told them to verify the voters manually instead of scanning the voter’s verification slip with the bio-metric verification kit, close the voting exercise at exactly 4pm and not to share any declaration forms with agents of the other candidates.
“I was instructed by Atumanya to tick the ballot papers in favour of President Museveni,” Amanyire says in the affidavit.
He ticked four booklets each comprised of 50 ballot papers in favour of Museveni but managed to record himself doing this.
Another video evidence produced by Amama shows Lt Gen Henry Tumukunde landing with an NRM helicopter at Boma Grounds in Fort Portal where Mbabazi had a rally.
Court presided over by Chief Justice Bart Katureebe kicked off hearing the full petition today, Monday.
The Chief Justice will also rule on whether to allow Makerere dons and civil society join Mbabazi’s petition.
