Eala legislator Mbidde beaten in Masaka

Democratic Party (DP) members went out of their way and beat up the Masaka Chairman, Fred Mukasa Mbidde.

At the close of last month, DP held grassroots elections in Masaka which were won by Suubi, an opposition pressure group.
A group of members led by Henry Busulwa, the Masaka Deputy Mayor cited a flawed process and demanded that results be falsified over voter bribery.

Apparently, the leaders were yesterday holding a meeting concerning the alleged marred grassroots elections.

The East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) legislator, according to Daily Monitor, stormed a tribunal meeting uninvited claiming it was illegal.

He said he was representing Layrus Mayanja, who had been appointed to chair the panel hearing the petitions but was unable to attend due to illness.

However, Dick Lukyamuzi, the DP chairman for Bukoto East Constituency, had Mbidde kicked out of the meeting venue.

Mbidde reportedly hurried to his car and returned brandishing a knife ready to cut someone.

The leaders had no choice but to teach Mbidde a lesson.

Afterwards, Lukyamuzi rushed to Masaka Central Police Station and reported a case of threatening violence against Mbidde.

The southern region police spokesperson, Noah Sserunjoji, said they had already started investigations.

Meanwhile, the party offices in Masaka have been ordered closed over internal wrangles.
