Mosque in elections in Kibaale district flopped for the second time on Sunday after the presiding officers declined to kick start the exercise saying they were not sensitized.
Mosque elections in Kibaale district flopped for the second time on Sunday after the presiding officers declined to kick start the exercise saying they were not sensitized. Sheikh Isaac Ssemakula, the district Dawa Secretary who was in charge of the elections says despite the fact the electoral materials were available on Sunday the presiding officials said that they had not been sensitized.
Ssemakula says the Uganda Muslim Supreme council put Sunday as deadline for all pending mosque elections. Although pledging to consult on the next move, Ssemakula says it’s likely the old committees will continue working. The affected mosques in Kibaale include Kagadi, Muhorro, Kobushera and Katikengeye and Buliisa mosque in Buliisa district. The elections at Kagadi and Muhorro and in Buliisa were suspended on Friday after materials arrived late, while those at Kobushera and Katikengeye in Mpefu subcounty flopped after the presiding officials demanded money.
Hajj Nsamo Kitunzi, the Uganda Muslim Supreme council electoral commissioner in charge of Bunyoro has declined to comment saying he is yet to be briefed on the pending elections in Kibaale and Buliisa districts. Muslims today elect leaders at county level. According to Hajj Kitunzi, in Bunyoro the elections are on in 14 counties all over the region.
