Transnight parties involving Night Discos and any other form of entertainment have been banned ahead of campaigns for Ssembabule woman member of parliamentary by-elections.
Latif Ngonzi, Ssembabule district returning officer, says discos are a recipe for insecurity in the district. Ngonzi explains that the electoral commission has limited security personnel to guard campaign venues in Sembabule district.
Ngonzi adds that candidates found politicking at weddings, funerals and burials will also be penalized because such venues are fertile grounds for riots.
According, Ngonzi, all the campaigns must end at 06:00 PM.
Andrew Sorowen, the southern regional police commander, says police has also suspended fundraising ceremonies in Ssembabule district because they involve providing alcohol which fuels violence.
Sorowen has explained that violence, acts of hooliganism, chaos during campaigns are usually associated with alcoholism.
Three candidates have been nominated to contest for the Sembabule district woman member of Parliamentary by-elections. The three are Joy Kabatsi, an independent candidate, Hanifa Kawooya NRM and Democratic Party's Irene Nantongo.
Sembabule woman member of parliamentary seat was declared vacant after the Supreme Court found out that the 2006 elections during which Hanifa Kawoya was elected was fraught with irregularities.
