Go Forward presidential candidate, Amama Mbabazi, had to fight his way to the planned venue in Mitooma district on Thursday.
Mbabazi who has been holding rallies in Bushenyi district, did not find it easy when he entered Ruhinda constituency [south and north] in Mitooma.
Mbabazi had a rally at Butare in Kyamuhunga but The Sub county Internal Security Officer [GISO], Majid Congo, reportedly attempted to prevent his convoy from accessing planned venue.
Mbabazi’s team managed to brush off the spy and proceed on foot to the venue.
Addressing supporters, Mbabazi encouraged them not to be intimidated.
“The Sub county Internal Security Officer who blocked access to our venue was acting out of the law,” he said.
Mbabazi said they proceeded to leave the mobile rig parked at the road.
“It was a short walk to the venue but symbolic in the fight against intimidation.”
He also opened a Go Forward office and spoke on the advanced sub county model and making the sub county the engine of growth in order to eradicate poverty.
At the Kyabugimbi rally, Mbabazi wondered why up to now Bushenyi as a district doesn’t have a referral hospital.
The main hospitals in Bushenyi include Kampala International University Teaching Hospital [private], Ishaka Adventist Hospital and Bushenyi Medical Centre [BMC].
He promised to pay all pensioners in his first 100 days in office.
Speaking at the Kabwohe town council rally in Sheema district, Amama said over 30 Muslim families in Kiziba village who lost their members and property during the war in 1979, will all be compensated.
President Yoweri Museveni has already directed Prime Minister Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda to look into the claims of the same victims and have them compensated.
Mbabazi is today campaigning in Rubiruzi and Buhweju.
