Uganda electoral commission issues revised campaign programme

The Electoral Commission [EC] has issued a revised programme ahead of elections on January 14, 2021

Kampala, Uganda | By Michael Wandati | Uganda’s Electoral Commission [EC] on Saturday 21st November 2020 issued a revised Presidential Campaign Programme.

It follows a week of disruptions after riots that started after presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine and Patrick Amuriat Oboi were arrested mid week. Police accused them of not following the COVID-19 Standard Operating Procedures [SOPs] related to crowds.

After the arrests, other candidates Norbert Mao, Mugisha Muntu and Henry Tumukunde suspended their campaigns, prompting this new revision by the Electoral Commission [EC].

The revised programme confirms that Robert Kyagulanyi will wind his campaign early next year in Wakiso, while Presidential candidate Yoweri Museveni will conclude in Kampala.
