RUBAGA South legislator Aloysius Mukasa yesterday joined a team of NUP leaders led by the Leader of Opposition Rt. Hon. Mathias Nsamba Mpuuga, NUP Vice President for Northern Uganda Dr. Lina Zedriga, NUP SG David Lewis Rubongoya and other Members of Parliament to comb a village called Bobi in Omoro County for party candidate Simon Tolit Acache who according to political analysts, will make NRM candidate Andrew Ojok Oulanyah, run for his money come tomorrow’s poll.
Hon. Mukasa travelled on Tuesday morning to Northern Uganda in Acholi Subregion to campaign for NUP candidate Simon Tolit. He travelled with his vote strategists.
Other MPs captured by our cameras were, Joyce Baagala Ntwatwa (Woman MP Mityana district) and Francis Xavier Katabaazi.
Omoro County Constituency fell vacant after the demise of area MP Jacob Oulanyah L’okori who doubled as Speaker Parliament of Uganda.
Under its mandate, the Electoral Commision set May 26, 2022 as election day to fill this position.
Out of the 12 candidates who picked nomination forms, only six fulfilled all the requirements. They are; Onen Jimmy Walter (IND), Odonga Terence (IND), Tolit Simon Akecha (NUP), Kizza Oscar (ANT), Ojok Andrew Oulanyah (NRM) and Odong Justine (FDC).
‘ALL IS SET FOR OUR VICTORY’, MP ALOYSIUS MUKASA
Speaking to our reporter from Omoro Constituency yesterday night, Hon. Aloysius Mukasa said all they went to canvass for votes, voters were only waiting to massively vote for candidate Tolit who they say has experience, political maturity and he is a tested leader.
“Our candidate is a darling. He isn’t a visitor in the Constituency. He is one of them and perfectly understands issues affecting Omoro Country. In Omoro, there isn’t any tarmac road, there are no medical facilities, schools are in a sorry state, unemployment is too much and people want a leader who will speak out with out fear or favour òfor the government to compensate them. Tolit is a brand name, our expectations are very high.” Said Hon. Aloysius Mukasa.
He saluted top party leadership right from the President Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, VP Zedriga, LOP Rt. Hon. Mathias Mpuuga, SG David Lewis Ruongoya, Members of Parliament, other leaders and all footsoldiers who travelled to Omoro to campaign for party candidate, Simon Tolit Acache.
“Victory is on our side. Those with a habit of rigging for their weak candidates should stand warned. Let them dare rig Omoro votes, they will live to regret their action.” Warned MP Mukasa.
We are reliably informed, all NUP teams which will monitor and protect Tolit’s votes are on ground and another team led by Makindye mayor Alhaj Ali Kasirye Nganda Mulyanyama from Kampala has just left for Omoro. However MP says, they are under intimidation by security organs and a number of NUP supporters have been arrested.
MP MUKASA VISIT OMORO ACCIDENT VICTIMS
Before travelling to Omoro for campaigns, on Monday morning Hon. Mukasa visited NUP footsoldiers Sharon wa Bobi and Den City who are admitted in Rubaga Hospital where they are getting treatment after a fatal accident which claimed lives when their car overturned enroute to Omoro on Saturday, last week.
Hon. Mukasa who looked crestfallen on seeing Den City and Sharon struggling for dear life, assured them that he will stand with them as he wished the patients a quick recovery. He contributed financial support and pleged to stand with families until the two get well.
MP Mukasa first visited BBS Terefayina journalist Amon Kitaamirike who we are told got fractures on both legs and his neck is under support.
Kitaamirike who is at Mengo Hospital needs more prayers just like Lord Councilor Nusifa Nakato who according to our sources, is still in Soroti Hospital.
Hon. Mukasa also gave financial help to the BBS journalist who was travelling in the same car with NUP members to Omoro.
@ DENNIS WAISWA’S BURIAL
After visiting accident victims, the indefatigable Hon. Mukasa drove to Kamuli to attend send off for 2021 Iganga Municipality NUP MP aspirant Dennis Waiswa at a function attended by NUP Party president Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, members of Parliament and other leaders.
Dennis Waiswa and councilor Yakub Kiggundu lost lives in the Saturday fatal accident.
May the souls of the deceased rest in eternal peace!
