IN preparation for the Democratic Party (DP) primaries in Jinja district, leaders have been asked to fill party structures in the villages that have not yet voted. The party national chairperson, Muhammad Kezaala Baswale, said before holding the district party primaries, all structures must be in place to avoid irregularities. The primaries, whose dates have not yet been set, will be conduted under electoral colleges, according to Samuel Kitanda, the Jinja DP chairperson. Kitanda explained that electoral colleges will prevent the kind of malpractices that marred the NRM primaries. Kezaala announced that DP presidential hopeful Norbert Mao’s visit in the Busoga sub-region would start on October 1. Mao, he added, would spend six days in the region, soliciting signatories for his presidential bid and introducing party flag-bearers to the people. He was addressing journalists at his office last week.
