The former Electoral Commission chairperson, Eng. Badru Kiggundu has urged his successor, Justice Simon Byabakama to stick to his guns as the country prepares to go into polls on January,14.
Speaking on the sidelines of the function to commission the new Isimba public bridge that connects Kayunga to Kamuli district, Kiggundu said the EC boss should not be intimidated by any politician but should rather stick to what the laws of the country say.
Justice Byabakama’s Electoral Commission has been criticized by many for what has been termed as sanctioning a crackdown on the opposition while on the other side ignoring their National Resistance Movement (NRM) opponents.
Such cases have been cited in the disregarding of the Standard Operating Procedures aimed at stopping the spread of the deadly Coronavirus.
