Go Forward presidential candidate, Amama Mbabazi, says he has intelligence indicating that Rwandans and Burundians are being ferried to Uganda to vote in the February 18 elections.
Mbabazi was addressing a press conference on Monday morning at Larem Guest house in Gulu town.
The former Prime Minister said there is a possibility of Rwandans and Tanzanians sneaking into the country to vote.
“I know some people who come from Rwanda and Tanzania to vote here,” Mbabazi told press.
“The threat of rigging is real, Tanzanians and Rwandans have already been assembled to vote.”
Mbabazi cited ineligible voters, double voting and vote stuffing as the means through which elections are rigged.
This comes amid social media reports that Burundians were being ferried into the country to also vote for a particular candidate.
While campaigning in Kitgum last week, Mbabazi used the example of Tanzaniawhere Julius Nyerere retired after 24 years in leadership, calling it a model country.
He said good leaders do not die in power but mentor and prepare citizens to develop succession capacity.
In addition to Hon. Amama Mbabazi’s press conference, our team had received information last week that people were going to board buses in Rwanda to come and vote in Uganda. Below is the message:
Most of us Rwandese here will board next week to Uganda to vote for Museven, i can see museven funds here in Gitarama Rwanda being shared for transport,etc
We shall vote from Kisoro district, and others in Kamwezi- Kabale district
Buses have been hired and we shall board on Sunday 14th and settle in our nearest polling stations where we registered from ahead of Uganda elections on 18th Feb
I call upon my fellow Rwandans to eat money but vote wisely
