Drama ensured DP elections in Katabi Town council after elections in one of the influential DP oriented suburb, Abaita were turned to drama as the area Chairperson, also DP leader for Abaita cell Abbey Ssebowa ran into hiding with DP electoral forms.
Ssebowa ran into hiding after a failed attempt to inflate the DP register with several women dubbed “escorts” within the area to vote for him as DP chairperson again.
On sight of the escorts at the electoral grounds towards Nkumba Quran Primary school, DP youths led by Musa Kavuma immediately ordered the Ssebowa to follow the updated DP register and leave out all escorts who were reportedly not DP members.
“We immediately rallied our colleagues to stop any operations of voting until all non members left. On realizing that he had been left with no clout, he ran away with all voting sheets.” Kavuma told Entebbe Post.
The DP returning officer for Abaita ababiri and her team decided to look for alternative means of electing new leaders.
By Sunday 2.00 pm, voting was underway. Daniel Sseguya was voted to replace Ssebowa who had gone into hiding as Chairperson. Other elected leaders included Denis Musisi (Vice Chairperson), Hassan Ssenyonjo (General Secretary) among others.
Ssebowa is said to have vowed to annul the election results arguing that they were null and void since they involved chaos and had no elected leaders to lead the electoral process.
There has been reported chaos in the DP grass root elections in Entebbe and Katabi Town council with the different worrying factions struggling to retain and takeover the leadership of the oldest party.
Voting in Entebbe suburbs Kiwafu Central and West constituencies has been halted as the worrying factions of Vincent Kayanja, the current chairperson and that of the former MP contestant Micheal Kakembo argue on the readmission of Muhammad Kawuma the former Entebbe Municipality MP into the DP structures.
Kawuma is said to have betrayed the Democratic Party with a cozy NRM relationship.
