The ballot papers had been pre-ticked in favour of Cissy Namujju who is vying for the same post with Sarah Nkonge.

The National NRM Vice Chairman, Alhajji Moses Kigongo intervened and suspended the election until a further date is communicated.

NRM party leadership warns members to desist from anarchy.

A few hours to NRM primaries scheduled for tomorrow,
the party leadership has warned members to
desist from anarchy or the law will take care of
them. The ruling party primary elections have
been marred by chaos including burning of one
of the party tallying offices, cutting off legs of
one of the supporters and burning of a house of
one of the contestants for Luweero LCV seat,
Ronald Ndaula. The ugly state of affairs has
served to portray NRM as a violent party and
tended to forecast an ugly 2016 general
elections since the same will be between the
opposition and the NRM party. As the
international community, religious leaders,
politicians and Ugandans continue to lambast
NRM and government for failure to rein on
anarchy within its ranks, the Secretary General
Justine Lumumba Kasule has issued a tough
warning to the party supporters to stop engaging
in chaos.
