KASESE: Alex Baluku, a journalist attached to Messiah FM in Kasese and Rwenzori Daily has been this afternoon put at gun point at Katunguru Primary School polling station in Katwe Katabaro Town Council in Busongora South County Kasese district.

Baluku told ugreports.com that when they were covering the ongoing by-election at the above polling station, security ordered them to vacate the area.

‘’Though they told us to vacate the place, we continued covering, one of the security officers whom I didn’t identify just put me at gunpoint, I immediately left the area for safety,’’ he explained.

According to Baluku, election observers and the agents of some political candidates raised an issue of double voting, vote stuffing and also men in uniform parading to vote.

‘’I don’t know whether the uniform men were also supposed to vote at the same polling station, but those are some of the issues that caused chaos at the polling station,’’ he asserted.

By press time Baluku was heading to the police to report the matter. ‘’Í have reported the matter to the umbrella for Journalists in Kasese and I’m now heading to the police,’’ he said.

We could not get a comment from the Rwenzori East Police Spokesperson, ASP Nelson Tumusiime since he didn’t respond to our reported phone calls by press time.

Six candidates are fighting to represent Busongora South Constituency in the parliament and they are; Jackson Mbaju {NUP}, Aloysius Baguma Kighema {FDC}, Bernadette Businge {DP}, and Thembo Mujungu {NRM}.

Others are Doreen Izagiire and David Mulindwa Isimbwa both on Independent tickets.

The by-election for Busogora South County came after the seat fell vacant on June 21 when the Court of Appeal ruled that Mr Gideon Thembo Mujungu (NRM) was irregularly elected.
