Go Forward candidate, Amama Mbabazi, claims he has reports of a plan of ballot stuffing by the ruling party.
Mbabazi was Monday morning addressing a presser at Lake View Hotel in Mbarara town.
He said President Museveni hopes to benefit from low voter turnout come February 2016 elections.
“Please go out, vote and exercise maximum vigilance,” he called upon Ugandans.
Mbabazi said the vigilance he was talking about is protecting of the vote.
In a long article, President Museveni claimed he had reports that opposition was plotting to use computers and alter election results.
He warned that they would be dealt with.
He also threatened that those who know about the plot and don’t come out would be arrested.
“There is nothing wrong with people participating in an election to devise a mechanism to follow up the results,” Mbabazi said in turn.
He added: “There is no need to hack [to change results], we have the support.”
Mbabazi also warned of problematic scenarios if results at the Uganda electoral commission don’t tally with those at his tally centre.
“Very many ballots have been brought in for purposes of stuffing that’s why we are asking people to be more vigilant,” he said.
Mbabazi said the difference between him and FDC who came out earlier is that state intimidation doesn’t affect them.
He said state operatives closed down Endigyito FM in Mbarara town because the station hosted him.
UCC insists closure was due to unpaid fees.
