The ruling NRM party has been the use of public vehicles by its members to campaign in the coming elections.

The ban was announced by NRM Electoral Commission chairman, Tanga Odoi, Friday while issuing the NRM Electoral Road Map.

Tanga said anyone who wants to take papers to the party headquarters in Kyadondo shouldn’t be seen using a government vehicle.

“Buy a limousine, put private plates/ hire a plane but no one is coming here in a public vehicle,” Tanga insisted.

He said only the President, Vice President, Speaker of Parliament and the Deputy Speaker are allowed to go to the headquarters in a public vehicle.

“We want people in parliament to know the rules they make are being implemented.”

Tanga warned ministers saying they are respected but “we shall respect them better when they respect the law”.

“If you break the law, the law will take its course.”

Opposition has always faulted government on using state resources including vehicles and money to campaign in party elections.

The ruling party is always at the centre of criticism especially after Bank of Uganda governor, Emmanuel Mutebile, confessed having given president Museveni state money to use in 2011 general elections.

As far as misuse of government vehicles is concerned, some ambulances and other government vehicles have been seen carrying politician’s farm materials, home equipment etc, in many parts of the country.
