Godfrey Kayemba, the IPC mayoral candidate for Masaka Municipality has stormed the Kasijagirwa armored brigade barracks demanding for the alleged extra voters registers.
Accompanied by ten of his supporters, Kayemba stormed the barracks this afternoon following reports by the IPC vigilante poll watchers that the barracks was being used to rig the election in favour of William Kalumba, the NRM candidate.
Kayemba claims that the vigilantee youths reported that they were harrased and pushed out of the Kasijagirwa polling station. They also claimed that they had witnessed some ballot stuffing activities taking place.
Also on Kayemba's list of rigging activities, are reports that the voter's register at the Kasijagirwa army polling station was different from the register being used elsewhere. He claims that he was told that the register being used at the barracks contained ghost voters.
But on arrival at the barracks, Kayemba was allowed at the polling station located just outside the barracks.
Kayemba insisted that he wanted to enter the barracks to look for the alleged registers, sparking off a scuffle between him and the soldiers as they pushed him away. He was eventually blocked from entering the barracks.
David Muhoozi, the armoured brigade commander was present at the scene of the scuffle but declined to comment.
Police was called in to intervene.
Noah Serunjogi, the southwestern police spokesperson, however says that Kayemba was responding to false alarms. He says the situation at the barracks is normal but tense.
