Members of the ruling National Resistance Movement [NRM] Mike Mukula and Ephraim Kamuntu over the weekend breached Covid19 regulations to hold political campaigns.
A video showed Mukula, the NRM chairman for Eastern Region, addressing an NRM meeting in a church in Bugisu sub-region on Sunday.
No social distancing whatsoever was observed as per Covid19 guidelines.
Religious leaders have been calling for the reopening of places of worship, but their request has been rejected by the regime.
“Yet now, Churches are used as gathering places for NRM politicians! The hypocrisy! The double standards,” lashed out People Power leader Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine.
“I am now challenging Mr. Byabakama [EC boss] to come out and explain to us what moral right he has to even talk about scientific elections!” Bobi Wine noted.
On Saturday, Justice and Constitutional Affairs minister Kamuntu was also meeting his supporters in a church Bushenyi.
After presenting laws that were passed in Parliament against Rallies and social gathering hiding in Covid19 pandemic, Kamuntu was once again recorded in this video holding a public rally in Sheema district where he is running for Member of Parliament.
This is the third time Prof. Kamuntu is seen holding campaigns in Sheema in a spell of just two weeks.
Seemingly, the laws passed are only effective on opposition leaders and candidates while those in government are free to hold campaign mega rallies without observing social distancing, washing hands or even putting on face masks, complained opposition Forum for Democratic Change [FDC] party.
