Court remands Bukedea DPC, RDC for negligence to prevent crime

Must read

Bukedea Resident District Commissioner Wilberforce Tukei and District Police Commander SP Charles Okoto have been remanded to Bukedea prison.

Appearing before Bukedea Magistrate Court the two have been charged with neglect to prevent a felony and subsequently remanded until July 26, 2023.

The two were arrested in relation to unlawful and criminal acts that took place during the LCV chairperson by-election which was won by the National Resistance Movement (NRM) candidate Mary Akol.

Several leaders including Bukedea Town Councilor Dan Malinga have since been nabbed and charged before the Bukedea Magistrate Court for allegedly mobilizing and leading the goons who assaulted and robbed Omagor Steven. Sources say that the duo were acting on orders of a powerful politician from the district.

Last month, President Yoweri Museveni directed Brig. Henry Isoke, State House Anti-Corruption Unit boss to investigate criminality and vote rigging that were reported in the by-election.

According to the statement which was released by Museveni, he says he got some disturbing information about the recent by-election in Bukedea for LCV Chairperson where ‘our NRM’ candidate won with 91% and the voter turn-put was 87%.

He said he was happy for his party to perform so well. However, he got information from government officials on the night of the nomination, who invaded the house of Mr. Omagor, confiscated his academic papers and stole Shs163 million from him so that he would be able to be nominated the following morning.

“The EC had extended the nomination days when he appealed. Even then when he went for nomination, he was attacked at the gate of the Electoral Commission. Come election morning, Government officials invaded the polling stations and voted on behalf of the voters. This sounds like a film.” he said.

“I want to be sure that Uganda does not go back to the crime of 1980, with the Muwanga elections that forced us to go to the bush. Therefore, investigate these claims and if any criminality was committed, take action and report back. I am, therefore, directing you to handle the criminals,” he said.
