ZOMBO:

MR ODUBI ISMAIL the coordinator and the spokesman for MR WATHUM STEPHEN AMBROSE the people power aspirant  for the LC3 chairperson seat for WARR subcounty in ZOMBO district has claimed that the camp is receiving series of threats from different people within the subcounty. 

MR ODUBI in an interview with Citinews LTD on the 10th of August explained that ever since the news about their candidate poped-up last month, Many folks within authority and at community level were approaching him , the candidate and other partners in crime directly and indirectly to di-spirit them from continuing with their cause.

" We are receiving threats from all corners, people from community are imploring us to back down, They are saying that we are supporting the party that is opposed to the government. Last week, Warr subcounty secretary for people with Disability approached us and discouraged us from supporting people power, Immediately after the news about our candidate broke up, MR MUNGURYEK CHARLES  The LC 3 chairperson for Warr Subcounty a contestant under the NRM party went to MALITABU in AGYERMACH trading centre to particularly warn youths and other people from supporting us" said Odubi

Nonetheless, efforts to reach the LC3 chairperson for Warr sub-county MR CHARLES MUNGURYEK for a comment went futile during the filing of the report. 

Similarly, the spokesman also mentioned that their boots are on the ground and are on the double to bring up National Unity Platform or People Power movement membership cards and attires to the youths of Warr Subcounty who has lapped up and shown maximum support for their ideals. The spokesman further said no intimidation of some sorts will di-spirit them from championing their cause since what they are doing doesn't contravenes the constitution of country Uganda.

" we dont like cheap politics, its our right to choose anybody or party of our choice so long as its within the law. Nothing shall discourage us from our cause, many youths and other people are supporting us either directly or indirectly. We are hurriedly working to bring up NUP or people power membership cards and attires of the party here in warr. We are going forward" explained Odubi

According to article 1 of the constitution... the state shall be based on democratic principles,  which encourage and empower active participation of all citizens at all levels in their own governance..it further stipulates that all the citizens of Uganda shall have access to leadership positions at all levels subject to the constitution. 

MR WATHUM STEPHEN AMBROSE is the first candidate to ever declare his intention to contest on people power or National Union Platform ticket in the greater nebbi. The party is under the stewardship of kyadondo East legislature Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine.
