NRM registers stolen, councillor arrested


President Museveni signs his new NRM Party Card in Gulu


Harriet Kakaire, the councilor for Kizingu Zone in Njeru town council is in trouble over the disappearance of the National Resistance Movement party registers, ballot papers and other election materials.

Julius Tugumanawe, the Njeru Police Division Commander says that Kakaire was picked over the weekend in connection with the theft of the party materials.

She is expected to appear in court today once the investigations are complete.

Ronald Mukwana, the Njeru Town Council NRM returning officer says the register books, pens and aprons went missing on Saturday evening after they were handed to NRM party members.

Richard Kimera, a member of the NRM executive in Njeru town council alleges that councilor pretended to be the Njeru Town Council NRM party chairperson and picked up two party registers also known as yellow books and 1000 ballots papers meant for the party primaries.

However, the materials have disappeared without a trace. The disappearance of the materials has thrown the NRM camp in confusion as some party officials have started trading accusations.

Dorothy Mpiima, the Buikwe District Woman MP accuses Paul Musoke, the Njeru Town Council NRM chairperson of masterminding the theft of the register and ballot papers to enable him rig primaries.

Musoke has denied the accusations and instead called for thorough police investigations into the incident.
