NUP candidates hold special prayers ahead of campaigns, call on police brutality

Members of the National Unity Platform (NUP) in Entebbe Municipality held special prayers on Sunday to commit their contenders and campaigns to God at Arise and Shine Ministries in Lugonjo, Entebbe.

The service presided over by main celebrant Apostle Peter Kisakye Zzimula who is also vying for the L3 Chairperson seat of Entebbe Division B with the intent of consecrating candidates ahead of campaigns.

Apostle Kisakye suggested that their party will face an uphill task without God amidst Covid-19 and “selective” police violence and brutality.

“We are nothing without God, and we as a nation face trying times as we get closer to the general polls we have witnessed violence from state operatives…we are going to follow they guidelines in place but we can’t be sure of how the police will treat us” Kisakye said

On a similar note, Entebbe Municipality MP hopeful Micheal Kakembo described the campaigns as “unfair” citing how security agencies have been biased while handling members of NUP in the recent weeks.

This comes after many Ugandans have criticized the Police and sister agencies on the mishandling of NUP flag bearer Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu and his entourage last week a few hours after his nomination.

Entebbe NUP chairperson Stuart Lubwama used the occasion to call on the Police to opt for civility in settling differences, rather than engaging in brutality.
